Isaiah 26:12 — Lord, You establish peace for us; all that we have accomplished You have done for us (NLT).
The Lord has established peace for you; He initiates it. No one can live in perfect peace absent of God’s influence. In Isaiah 45:7, He said, “I make peace.”
God manufactures peace, but we must maintain it. Peace is a byproduct of identification with Christ. Jesus is the Prince of Peace, so you keep the peace by living your life by faith in Him.
Your identity was originally founded on the premise of the sinful nature, but you have been remodeled in Christ Jesus. You belong to Him and are now established on a firm foundation of perfect peace—a peace only He can give.
In the midst of chaos and uncertainty, His peace will keep you calm and confident. When your life is grounded in Him, you will stand strong during the most severe of storms.
Isaiah 9:6 — For a child is born to us, a Son is given to us. The government will rest on His shoulders. And He will be called: Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace (NLT).
