Richard III- a horse or peace

“A horse! a horse! my kingdom for a horse!”

We’d give anything to receive the thing that will fill the need of the moment; Esau gave up an inheritance to satisfy an empty stomach! What good is a million dollars if it can’t cure our sickness or bring us the peace that is lacking?

Recently, I felt so thankful for the peace that is in my home. Although we’ve been married 33 years, my husband and I don’t see eye to eye on many things. Yet there is an underlying peace in the midst of it all. How can that be?

When we have peace with God we can have peace with men. Mankind has been at variance with God since Adam and Eve, so the Lord took it upon Himself to rectify the situation.

Col.1:20 and through him (Jesus Christ) to reconcile all things unto himself, having made peace through the blood of his cross;

Once that peace has been restored it is possible to live at peace with all men. Having peace with God as our foundation we have the basis for resolving the conflicts that surround us.

I hate that phrase “agree to disagree” because people only use it when they’ve reached an impasse and can’t go any further in their argument. The verbal disagreement may have stopped, but there is no respect for the other person’s point of view, and definitely NO agreement.

I love the proclamation of the end of our discord with God: Lk. 2:14, Glory to God in the highest, And on earth peace among men in whom he is well pleased.

And the marvelous manner the Lord employed to make us aware of it: Lk. 2:13 And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying…

A book I’m reading has reminded me how God uses angels to minister what we, the heirs of salvation, have need of by hearkening unto the voice of his word. (Hebrews 1:14; Psalm 103:20)

It’s a great comfort to know that God is not against us. He even extends mercy to a thousand generations of those who fear him.

Ps. 27:13 [I had fainted], unless I had believed to see the goodness of Jehovah In the land of the living.

We can rest in the promises He gives us and trust Rom. 8:32, He that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not also with him freely give us all things?
