Pastor Lida Bain Tabernacle of Worship THE AWAITING OF PEACE

Isaiah 9:6 KJV

6 For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace. When we read this verse of scripture, we recall the babe in the manager. We are told several of the names that will reveal His character. Those of us who believe in Him, know Him as Wonderful. We seek Him as a counselor, someone to guide us in difficult decisions. Some have trouble with seeing Him as an ever-loving Father, but let me assure you, HE is! But to truly know Him as the Prince of Peace requires a sincere relationship with Him.

We can seek peace here on earth, but again the bible tells us Isaiah 48:22 “There is no peace for the wicked.” That is simply showing us; to have peace is to “know” God. Our world is so full of violence and heartache and we need to “know Him” to obtain peace in this world.

A favorite scripture of mine is that of the apostle Paul; Philippians 3:10 “ I want to know Christ and the power of His resurrection and the fellowship of His sufferings, being conformed to Him in His death, 11 and, to attain to the resurrection from the dead.… 2 Timothy 2:12 tells us “If we suffer with Him, we shall also reign with Him! O, what a glorious day that will be!” I pray that you “know Him!” For I never knew what love was until He showed me…I never knew Peace until He came into my heart! Do you “know” the Peace Speaker? I know Him by name!
