FACTS ABOUT THE PEACE OF GOD
By DIGC26 September 2020
You are not permitted to know God and your life is crisis-full, pressure-full, or “peace-less”. No! God is the God of peace.
SCRIPTURE: Now the God of peace be with you all. Amen. Romans 15:33
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: It is not possible for anyone to have true peace without knowing God.
We have seen in our previous studies, what peace is all about. We also saw the necessity of peace.
Today, we shall be looking at some key facts on peace.
- God is the God of peace.
God is the Owner, Custodian, and Author of peace. This implies that it is not possible for anyone to have true peace without knowing God. So, God is the Author of peace. No wonder, Romans 15:33 says, Now the God of peace be with you all. Amen.
God is the God of peace. This is also confirmed in other scriptures like Romans 16:20; 1 Corinthians 14:33; 1 Thessalonians 5:23, and Hebrews 13:20.
You see, you are not permitted to know God and your life is crisis-full, pressure-full, or “peace-less”. No! God is the God of peace.
- Peace is a blessing and provision of God for His people.
God is not just the God of peace; He provides peace for His people.
It is God’s will to bless His people with peace. Peace is a blessing and provision of God for His people (Psalm) 29:11. Peace is an ordination for God’s people (Isaiah 26:12). The Kingdom of God is a Kingdom of peace, a Kingdom of joy, and a Kingdom of righteousness (Romans 14:17). Halleluiah!
- The covenant of peace connects God’s people to the peace of God.
God is the God of peace. Peace is His blessing for you, but you connect that peace from the covenant of peace (Isaiah 54:10, Ezekiel 34:25-26, Ezekiel 37:26, Malachi 2:4-5)
Now, covenant with God implies demands to be met by man for deliveries to be made by God. For example, when we talk about the covenant of service, it requires the scriptural demand for service to be met by man before he can access the deliveries of supernatural supplies and good health from God. Exodus 23:25 says, “And ye shall serve the Lord your God, and he shall bless thy bread, and thy water; and I will take sickness away from the midst of thee”.
This means, if you want God to bless you, you must serve Him. In the same way, in walking in the covenant of peace, there are demands to be met by man in order for the delivery of peace to be made by God. Romans 14:19 says, Let us therefore follow after the things which make for peace, and things wherewith one may edify another.
So, there are things that make for peace, and when you follow those things, you access the peace of God.
