In the world today the subject of peace seems to be a foreign concept, that people cry out for, but fight against. Riots and violent protests, are happening so frequently, and at the same time these protests seem to be anything closely related to peaceful. I live in a rural community and protests even made it to a local town square. A group of bikers, stood guard and kept violence from breaking out, without interfering with the protests. A local church even prayed with some of the protestors. A small business was even threatened by ANTIFA. Thankfully do to community protection no harm came to the business owner. Who had been confused why she had been targeted. You will hear at some of these protests people yelling, ‘No justice, no peace’. Our land is filled with hatred and violence. Too many seem to care only for themselves, and do not care if anyone gets hurt. They make demands, but give nothing in return. It is like our nation is being held hostage by fear and hate. Peace seems to not exist here.
Psalm 35:20 For they do not speak peace, but they devise deceitful words against those who are quiet in the land.
Jeremiah 8:11 For they have healed the hurt of the daughter of my people slightly, saying, Peace, peace; when there is no peace.
Romans 3:17 And the path of peace they have not known.”
Only in Christ Jesus will we find true peace. The Ho;y Spirit is our Comforter and our Helper. We need to repent and return to God as a nation, so that He can heal and bring peace to this land and its people. Let us pray together for the Peace of our Lord Jesus to flow through out our nation.
John 16:33 I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.
Philippians 4:6-7 Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
Matthew 4:9 Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called children of God.
Let the love and peace of God flow freely from us all.
PRAY FOR PEACE WITHOUT CEASING!
