“For He Himself is our peace…” Ephesians 2:14 NKJV.
“Peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid” John 14:27 NKJV.
We usually define peace as a state of quietness of mind, but God’s peace is much deeper. Peace means “Shalom” in Hebrew and “Eirini” in Greek. It means to have nothing missing, to be complete, to be whole, to restore, to have nothing broken.
Here’s an example. My previous manager and her husband had a new house built. It wasn’t just any house. It was built with many antique items, from the front door, hardwood flooring shipped in, the man cave, and more. However, the one thing that was missing was her kitchen cabinets. Although they had everything else, the house wasn’t complete, wasn’t whole until those cabinets were installed. A few weeks ago, she told me she and her husband finally got their kitchen cabinets. Now her home was “Shalom”. “Eirini”. Complete. Nothing was missing, nothing broken.
You may have many things in your life, but you don’t feel you are shalom, or your life isn’t whole or complete. I don’t know what you may be missing, but you may be missing some boldness. You may be missing some healing for years so you can move forward. You may need some self-control or confidence. You could be needing patience until a desire comes, a rekindled fire, or overcoming something that’s hindered you.
Jesus is your peace. He is Who makes you whole and complete. He became our peace, restoring our relationship with God, and He is our peace no matter where we find ourselves in life. He supernaturally makes the difference.
We are going to pray and believe God that this week Jesus fills what’s missing and supernaturally gives your life peace.
Prayer: Thank You, Father. Thank You, Jesus, for being my peace. I pray for Your Shalom, Your Eirini, to manifest in my life. Supernaturally complete me and make me whole. I let You become what’s missing. I’m restored to the Father, and I’m restored in my life. I thank You for this peace in my life. In Jesus’ name, I pray, Amen!
