THE PRINCE OF PEACE
Memorise: For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder; And his name shall be called wonderful, Counsellor The mighty God, the Everlasting father, the Prince of peace.
Read: Isaiah 9:2-7, (KJV)
Bible in one year: Isaiah 28:1-30:17, Psalms 35
In recent times, the entire world has been troubled by one thing or the other. Governments of nations all over the world have explored all avenues and different theories to solve their problems, yet the crises increase. So many budgets are being voted by members of different groups all in the name of providing peace, and the more the investment of time, meetings, mediations and reconciliations, the less the solutions. Until we come back to where we have missed it, we will just keep reinventing the wheel. Also, individuals go through different forms of troubles and worries with no solution. There is nothing like an atmosphere of peace either in a nation or in the life of an individual. It is the greatest thing the world is searching for today and it is the best thing that can happen to a person.
Open Heavens 16 August 2016: - The Prince of Peace
Peace is saying no to violence and creating room for harmony and love. Those who do not have peace cannot experience wellness of life. When there is no peace in a place, it exposes everyone to hostility and aggression, but where there is peace; there is rest of mind and tranquillity. I decree that you will find peace today in Jesus’ name. Finding peace is finding Jesus Christ. He came to restore the broken relationship between man and God. He came to reconcile us back to the Father. Jesus is the one who broke down every wall of partition between us and God.
“For he is our peace, who hath made both one, and hath broken down the middle wall of partition between us”
No matter what you are going through in your life, there is a solution in Christ Jesus. In what area are you experiencing problem? Come to the Prince of Peace and He will give you rest.

Are you having troubles and fierce storms in your marriage? Come to Jesus and He will step into the centre of your home and give you peace.
“Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid”
There will be trying times in the life of every child of God but you can be rest assured that in your troubled times, you are not alone. God will never allow the trouble to overwhelm you. He will make you experience calmness in the situation. It is important you know that peace is not necessarily the absence of war, it is the presence of rest and calmness in the time of war. Jesus will always bring light into every darkness. He will always speak peace into every storm. He presides over every unpleasant situation of life so that you can experience His peace.
Father let your peace overrule all my worries in Jesus’ name.Open Heavens Daily Devotional, written by Pastor E.A Adeboye
