Day 355

PRINCE OF PEACE

For to us a child is born. . . .

And he will be called. . .Prince of Peace.

Isaiah 9:6

FROM THE FATHER'S HEART
My child, how the world longs for peace! Just as I wept over My beloved Jerusalem and My people's rejection of Me, I mourn when men and women today look for peace—in everything but Me. As Prince of Peace, I was born not to rule government, but to rule and bring peace to hearts everywhere. I love when you look to Me for peace, My child. I give you My peace—peace with God and the peace of God, both found in Me.

A GRATEFUL RESPONSE
Your arrival brought great promise: peace to all the world. Some came seeking an end to oppression; others expected a prince to rule. As Prince of Peace, You brought the only lasting peace—not with the world, but with God. And You came to rule in the heart, not on an earthly throne. Thank You for Your peace, Lord.

SIMPLE TRUTH

When Jesus entered the world, peace entered our hearts.
