We have no peace in the world, because we have no peace in our hearts. Anne Graham Lotz points us to the solution.
He will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. Of the increase of his government and peace there will be no end. (ISAIAH 9:6 – 7)
The world longs for peace, yet we have no peace in the world because we have no peace in our hearts. We need a new heart to love God and love other people. We need a new spirit of reconciliation with God and forgiveness toward others.
The Word promises that when the government of this world is on His shoulders, there will be no end to peace. The answer to conflict and war is Jesus. He will give us a right relationship with God that will produce a right relationship with the people around us. The solution to world conflict — and also the conflict in your home, your life — is God’s only Son, the Prince of Peace.
Pray that the world will be reconciled to God through faith in Jesus, and then be reconciled to each other. Go … tell someone there is an answer to conflict. Tell him or her about the Prince of Peace.
