“JEHOVAH-SHALOM”-“The Lord is Peace”
“Then Gideon built an altar there to the LORD and called it, The LORD Is Peace. To this day it still stands at Ophrah, which belongs to the Abiezrites.” Judges 6 verse 24
The World is in a state of turmoil and unrest , full of so much suffering and evil. This pain we ultimately bring upon ourselves and on others. When the consequences of our actions are made obvious it is then we turn to God ,more than often to blame rather than to ask for help or for love.
Its our very human nature to be directed towards sin and to cause harm to ourselves and others.
But amongst all this pain and suffering in the world our Lord is waiting with open arms to take up his children. God in his infinite nature has infinite peace, there is no real peace apart from the peace of God.
Gods peace does not come at a price it is not a pay per hour service, there is no contract and no limit to it. If you confess to God that you really are nothing more than a sinner, a bad person then He promises that he will come beside you and never leave you .
And when the God of Glory , the God that made all the universe comes and becomes part of you then you will truly know him as “Jehovah-Shalom”
