The Lord Is Our Peace

Description

Trusting in Christ means placing our reliance upon Him for the outworking of all things.

Then Gideon built an altar there to the LORD and named it The LORD is Peace. Judges 6:24

The Lord is our peace. Not family, not possessions. Not world conditions or the political situation. God’s covenant child need not be dependent—or codependent—on anyone or anything for his or her peace. In fact, when personal peace depends on anything but God, it’s fragile as a spider’s web. Not that the person in Christ is cold and indifferent. The suffering of others, broken relationships and world troubles stir compassion, prayer and godly deeds. But the individual trusting in Christ places ultimate reliance for the outworking of all things upon God. And they say, “The Lord is my peace.”
