Don't Lose Sight Of Who Christ Is

Is peace a person? If so, who is He?

The Bible tells us that it's Jesus. He is our Prince of Peace!!


Isaiah 9:6
For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counselor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.


John 14:27
Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.


Peace is possible because someone is in charge of this world. It's not me, you, your spouse, the mayor, or even the president....It is Jesus!! 


Jesus is our Prince of Peace! 


Jesus is our prince of peace.



Jesus had peace, as He walked on earth, not because He didn't have problems, but because He had a great relationship with His Heavenly Father. He knew God was in charge and nothing could happen without it being God's will. 

It is an amazing, trusting relationship between our Heavenly Father and Christ Jesus. 

When we are going through a difficult season in life, lets remember that God is in control. 


We can trust in Jesus.  


We were created to have that kind of relationship with God. A kind of relationship where we can rest and live in peace, even during those hard winter seasons of life. 

The truth is, sin separates us from God. When we are separated from God, we get separated from peace. 

However, God sent his only Son to die for you and me so we can be restored and reunited with our Prince of Peace. 

Peace that passing all understanding. We can have rest for our minds, hearts and souls. This doesn't mean once we are Christians, that the storms won't come. However, we can be calm in the storm. 

God is not an absent God. He still stands beside us, even in the darkness. 


Trust Jesus to be your Prince of Peace. 

If I'm focused on the storm I'm walking through; I will not have peace nor am I trusting God. 

If I keep my eyes on God, I will have peace and comfort, knowing that God has everything under control. I can trust in Him. 

You can't have the peace of God in your heart, if the Prince of Peace isn't ruling in your life. -Nancy Leigh DeMoss



Ephesians 2:14a
For he himself is our peace

Romans 16:20
The God of peace will soon crush Satan under your feet. The grace of our Lord Jesus be with you

Psalm 4:8
In peace I will lie down and sleep, for you alone, LORD, make me dwell in safety.



Let's Pray:
Dear Heavenly Father,
I need peace. A peace that passes all understanding. I want that! As I walk through this life, help me to keep my eyes on Christ and accept His peace in my life. Thank you for sending your Son to die on the cross for me. Come into my life and sweep out all that isn't of You. Change me to be the woman, wife and mother that you want me to be. When satan comes with his lies and attacks, be with me and help me to stand on your word and remain in peace. Give me strength to fight. Restore all that is broken. I love you Lord and I praise your HOLY name. You are worthy. In Christ name I pray. Amen. 

Thank you for being here with me and my journey of Pressing In and Pressing On to the heart of God.
