Jesus: "The Prince of Peace"
Isaiah 9 :
6. For unto us a Child is born;
unto us a Son is given;
and the government shall be upon his shoulder.
These will be his royal titles:
'Wonderful', 'Counsellor', 'The Mighty God',
'The Everlasting Father', 'The Prince of Peace'.
One thing that everyone wants is peace. Peace between nations, peace within nations, peace in families, and most importantly, personal peace.
This famous verse tells us that one of the titles of the Lord Jesus Christ is that He is the Prince of Peace.
He has broken down every wall of partition between us and God, and He can even work in our lives until we are at peace within our own inner person.
The one thing we need to resolve in asking Jesus to impart His peace to us, is that we need to line up our lives with Him and His values, and run our lives by His precepts.
The peace of Jesus to us is free, but we need decide how firm is our desire to commit to His purposes! Obedience to Him is the channel through which His peace flows into our lives.
Father, today I commit myself to Jesus Christ, the Prince of Peace.
Jesus, I need Your quality of peace in my inner person today.
I've tried other kinds of peace, but they are only temporary. I need Your constant flow of peace.
So I ask You to work within me beginning today, so that I come to that place where Your peace is comfortable inside my being.
I want to love You with all my heart, Lord Jesus,
