‘He will be named Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Eternal Father, Prince of Peace.’ Isaiah 9:6b HCSB
Good morn, PeacefulHeart,
Do you know what thrills me to no end about God’s children? Their deep-lake peace.
Let me explain. No one in human skin is exempt from drama. Surface drama. Excitement, disappointment, chaos, and every emotion known to man. The outer edges of our daily behavior is based on the “deal” going on today in our life … our ‘mindset of the moment’. Whatever happens there, on the fringe, is like the surface of a lake – sometimes dead calm, sometimes windy and rough. Cycles and seasons and egos and drama come and go and influence the surface. Those who have given their hearts to Christ find that deep down – the lake is undisturbed. Peaceful even. No matter the white-caps, the Creator has your resting place ready and available and accessible.
As a child of the living God, you are the whole lake – in touch with the depth of the Prince of Peace, which remains absolutely still. We abide in His unchanging, timeless, deathless presence. Our surface fluctuates – plays, experiences, creates and dabbles in continuous drama … God gets that, He lived in skin for a while on earth, too. But, the only requirement you and I have as His children is to attach ourselves to His navigation through the waters to our eternity. Mm. Yeah. Rest there. No matter the storm, go deep in His peace.
Wear Him as your life-jacket.
