Day 21 – Peace – 2022

Day 21 – Peace – 2022

For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders. And he will be called: Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. 

Isaiah 9:6, NIV

For the entirety of human history, the promise of peace has been limited by one question: Peace for whom? Try as we might, our best version of peace always comes at the expense of others. But not in God’s Kingdom. This child born to us is for us, bringing a peace that cannot be matched! This peace is not at the expense of others, it is for others! May you know and share this peace with everyone you meet. 

Prayer Guide:

  1. Take a moment to receive this truth: God has given you this gift of his peace-bringing son just as you are. 
  2. Now receive this truth: God has offered this same gift to others just as they are. 
  3. Ask the Holy Spirit to give you eyes to see and ears to hear these truths daily in your life. 
  4. Thank God for this gift of peace and the opportunity we have to share it with a world that desperately needs it.
