Luke 2:14 “Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace to men on whom His favor rests.”

Prince of Peace…this is what Isaiah called Him. In Micah 5:5 it tells us that Jesus Christ will be our peace…providing completely for our wellbeing and security. But what about when trials & tribulations come into our lives? Charles Spurgeon once wrote, “Trusting in Jesus Christ my Savior, there is still a blessed quietness in the deep caverns of my soul, though upon the surface, a rough tempest may be raging, and there may be little apparent calm.” We have an eternal refuge in Jesus and a peace that guards our hearts and minds in the midst of the storms of life. For as Isaiah 53:5 says, “His punishment that brought us peace was upon Him and by His wounds we are healed.” That’s right, His sufferings on the Cross removed and undid the penalty of sin & death…and gave us peace. Or as Jeremiah 33:6 reminds us, “I will heal My people and will let them enjoy abundant peace & security.” Jesus Christ is our peace…may you experience that blessed quietness today.
