Recently I heard a minister preaching on the government of Peace. It resounded within me, touching on thoughts I had already been processing for some time. Because of this, I’m resolved to, hopefully daily, to be looking into scriptures on peace.

This morning’s devotional trail of thoughts….
“The LORD bless you and keep you;
The LORD make His face shine upon you,
And be gracious to you;
The LORD lift up His countenance upon you,
And give you peace.” ’ Numbers 6:24-26
Another word for God’s Presence is His face… there is Peace in His Presence…
“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.” – Jesus John 14:27
“And He will be called… Prince of Peace” from Isaiah 9:6
“Of the increase of his government and of peace there will be no end, upon the throne of David, and over his kingdom, to establish it, and to uphold it with justice and with righteousness from this time forth and for evermore…” Isaiah 9:7
