This morning I told my husband that Jehovah Shalom is our peace. Then when I was making us some ginger tea, I recognized the label on the tea bag said, "Prince of Peace''.
Jehovah Shalom appears in Judges 6:24. After Gideon saw the angel of the Lord, he was extremely astonished and terrified. The angel perceived that Gideon was afraid so he declared, ''Peace! Do not be afraid... '' (verse 23).
Then Isaiah 9:6 revealed that Jesus (the Child to be born) would be called Prince of Peace. Finally, Isaiah 26:3 states, ''You will keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on You, because he trusts in You.''
No matter what is happening in your life right now, I pray that Jehovah Shalom will fill your mind, soul, and spirit with peace. Cast your cares on Him and make a decision to allow Him to be God instead of yourself. You do not have the power to solve your problems, but He does. Ask God's Holy Spirit to clothe you with peace in the name of Jesus.
The enemy will present all of your burdens to you on a platter and offer many reasons why you should worry. He will remind you that you do not have all that you want. He will even give you multiple reasons to dislike yourself, your children, your job, your house, your car, everything.
When that happens to you, start saying, "Jehovah Shalom is my peace, and He will fill my mind with peace if I keep thinking about Him and His Word. He is also Jehovah Jireh, my provider. He will take care of me in the name of Jesus. "
