JEHOVAH-SHALOM “The God of peace.”

We are meant to know the fullness of God’s perfect peace, His “shalom.” God’s peace surpasses understanding and sustains us through difficult times. It’s the product of fully being what we were created to be.

Psalm 119:161-168 ESV – 161  Princes persecute me without cause, but my heart stands in awe of your words. 162 I rejoice at your word like one who finds great spoil. 163 I hate and abhor falsehood, but I love your law. 164 Seven times a day I praise you for your righteous rules. 165 Great peace have those who love your law; nothing can make them stumble. 166 I hope for your salvation, O LORD, and I do your commandments. 167 My soul keeps your testimonies; I love them exceedingly. 168 I keep your precepts and testimonies, for all my ways are before you.

Isaiah 26:3-4 ESV –  3 You keep him in perfect peace whose mind is stayed on you, because he trusts in you. 4 Trust in the LORD forever, for the LORD GOD is an everlasting rock.

Precious Father,

Peace, security, contentment are so craved in our chaotic world. You alone can provide true peace that cannot be shaken. Thank You for Your Word, which shows me the source of peace. It is not found in anything that I can do. Peace is found in obedience to You, in submitting myself to Your Sovereign will and care. You made me; You are my God and Savior. You give me Your peace, a peace that cannot be shaken.

amen

JEHOVAH-JIREH “The God who provides.”

Just as He provided yesterday, He will provide today and tomorrow. He grants deliverance from sin, the oil of joy for the ashes of sorrow, and eternal citizenship in His Kingdom for all those adopted into His household.

Psalm 65:5-9 ESV – 5 By awesome deeds you answer us with righteousness, O God of our salvation, the hope of all the ends of the earth and of the farthest seas; 6 the one who by his strength established the mountains, being girded with might; 7 who stills the roaring of the seas, the roaring of their waves, the tumult of the peoples, 8 so that those who dwell at the ends of the earth are in awe at your signs. You make the going out of the morning and the evening to shout for joy. 9 You visit the earth and water it; you greatly enrich it; the river of God is full of water; you provide their grain, for so you have prepared it.

Amazing Sovereign of all creation,

You created everything, and You sustain everything by Your power. Nothing escapes Your notice; nothing is out of Your control.

Just as You provide food for all creatures, and water to nourish the plants and fill the seas, You exhibit that same intentional care for me. You created me; You saved me; You have promised to provide for me. Lord, help me to be content with You. Help me to trust You to be my provider.

amen
