Peace Like A River

river

…This is what the LORD says–your Redeemer, the Holy One of Israel: “I am the LORD your God, who teaches you what is good for you and leads you along the paths you should follow.Oh, that you had listened to my commands! Then you would have had peace flowing like a gentle river and righteousness rolling over you like waves in the sea. Your descendants would have been like the sands along the seashore–too many to count! There would have been no need for your destruction, or for cutting off your family name.”.…Isaiah 48:17-19 New Living Translation/ read the version you like

Isn’t this true of us today, like disobedient Israelites wandering in the wilderness?  If we’d only pay attention to Jesus’ commandment to love God and other.  Now, there’s a thought!  Not to be flippant, I know that the enemy comes with attacks, the more you know and love Jesus, the worse they can be. But Greater is our Prince of Peace!  He leads you, He is our peace.  I was having a tough day and went through the living room, looked an the painting above the mantle, of a dove, lion, and lamb. At the bottom it says, He is our peace.  And He’s been here all along.
