The LORD is Peace

The Lord greeted Gideon in peace, so he built an altar and named it “The LORD is Peace” (see Judges 6:23-24). You have probably heard the blessing “Shalom” from Jewish friends and acquaintances. It means peace. More importantly it means the Lord, our peace. Where does the Shepherd lead His sheep? Beside peaceful, still waters. “He leads me beside the still waters; He makes me lie down in green pastures(Psalm 23:2). When your heart is content, you are at peace. And where does that contentment come from? The grace of God. There’s no man more discontent than one who is not experiencing the amazing grace of God. Only in Jesus, will you find security, sufficiency, and serenity.

Related Scripture:

Psalm 4:8; 29:11; Isaiah 26:3; 2 Thessalonians 3:16

A - Adoration:

Praise Jesus for the truths in Romans 5:1-2: “Therefore, since we have been justified through faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have gained access by faith into this grace in which we now stand. And we boast in the hope of the glory of God.

C - Confession:

Confess your need for peace through Jesus as you sing Lord I Need You.

T - Thanks:

Thank God for the peace He speaks of in John 14:27Peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.

S - Supplication:

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.(Philippians 4:6-7). Spend time sharing personal or communal anxieties with God and allow His peace to guard your heart and mind. Pick up a newspaper or go to News24 at and pray for peace around the globe where there is strife. To supplement your prayer time, you may want to also do the YouVersion devotion "Six Days of the Names of God".
