Jesus of Nazareth, the Prince of Peace, is the only One who can give us unshakable peace in a world of turmoil. As someone said, “There will never be peace in the individual heart or at the peace tables of the world until the Prince of Peace reigns supreme in the hearts of men.” Jesus said, “Peace I leave with you; My peace I give to you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid” (John 14:27, New International Version). He also said, “Come to Me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest” (Matthew 11:28, NIV).
Everyone experiences difficulties. The Christian is not exempt. Becoming a Christian does not mean that we will suddenly be ushered into a utopian situation, but rather that we have One with us who said, “Lo, I am with you always [remaining with you perpetually — regardless of circumstance, and on every occasion], even to the end of the age.”” (Matthew 28:20, Amplified).
What kind of peace does He give those who trust in Him? It is a quiet confidence that, since our sovereign, loving, all-powerful God is in control, we have nothing to fear. Jesus gives us peace with God through the forgiveness of sin. He provides peace of mind through an unhindered relationship with Him. He shows us how to have peace with man by teaching us how to love others. When He is in control, no situation, heartache or sorrow can ever disturb that peace.
Tragedy, heartache and sorrow will come into your life, but Christ, the Prince of Peace, waits to sit upon the throne of your life to give you His pardon, His purpose and His peace.
