God is the Lord of our Peace. In his letter to the Christians in Rome, the Apostle Paul declares, “The God of peace will soon crush Satan under your feet.” (Romans 16:20a) Yesterday, we rejoiced and praised the Lord because in Him we have victory over our toils and troubles of this world. Our current situation is temporary.
Paul reminds us that through Jesus, we have peace with God. We have gained access by faith into God’s grace. We can rejoice in the hope we have in the Lord. We can even sing praise during our sufferings because we can be confident that suffering produces endurance, and endurance builds character, and character brings hope. God’s love has been poured into us through the Holy Spirit, who God has given to us as our comfort and guide (Romans 5:1-5).
Praise the Lord because He is the God of our Peace.
