Prince of Peace, Will You Give Me Peace Anew?


“For unto us a Child is born,
Unto us a Son is given;
And the government will be upon His shoulder.
And His name will be called
Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God,
Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.” ~ Isaiah 9:6, NKJV

“You will keep in perfect and constant peace the one whose mind is steadfast [that is, committed and focused on You—in both inclination and character],
Because he trusts and takes refuge in You [with hope and confident expectation].” ~ Isaiah 26:3, AMP

“Peace I leave with you; My [perfect] peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Do not let your heart be troubled, nor let it be afraid. [Let My perfect peace calm you in every circumstance and give you courage and strength for every challenge.]” ~ John 14:27, AMP

Steady My Heart, Lord. I Need Your Peace

Lord, You are the God of all comfort, my refuge in the difficult place. You are Wonderful, Counselor … the Prince of Peace. Oh, how I need Your peace. Will You steady my heart?

Your love is so much stronger than whatever troubles me. I need You like I never have before, yet … I’m thankful because I know You like never before.

Prince of Peace

This difficult place is teaching me who You are — the Keeper of my soul. I am learning Your faithfulness to me, Your long-suffering. I am gaining an understanding of Your mercy that I have never known before.

Chesed. Mercy. Your steadfast covenant love …

I am a recipient of Your covenant love and I am so grateful.

So why am I lacking peace?

I know You as Jehovah Shalom, the Lord my Peace … the Prince of Peace. That is who You are. I have no need to fear an unknown future. I have no need to worry and fret, to be frustrated by the chaos of this world. I have no need for those things, and yet I struggle.

Prince of Peace

Forgive me, Lord. Turn my eyes toward You and remind me who I am to You. When my mind is stayed on You, You will keep me in perfect peace. As I call out to You, hear me in my distress and bathe me in the light of Your love. In Your presence is where I want to be. In Your presence, I will find peace.

Lord, You Are My Prince Of Peace

Bless You, Lord. I give You honor, glory, and praise.

In Jesus’ Name, I pray,

Amen ~ let it be so
