Yahweh-Shalom

Today's Scripture

And Gideon built an altar to the Lord there and named it Yahweh-Shalom (which means "the Lord is peace"). - Judges 6:24 NLT.

Thoughts for Today

Shalom! If you were to walk the streets of Israel today, you would hear this word used frequently--to greet people, to bid people goodbye, as a greeting of peace.

But shalom means so much more. According to Strong's Concordance, a word study in the New King James version brings up "completeness, wholeness, health, peace, welfare, safety, soundness, tranquility, prosperity, perfectness, fullness, rest, harmony, the absence of agitation or discord."

The Lord is peace. In Him, we can find completeness … safety … rest … harmony … and so much more.

Consider this …

In today's world, we see the antithesis of these characteristics. We see a world torn apart by strife, sickness, war, danger, unrest, poverty, evil, turmoil, and discord. If we dwell on these things, they will overwhelm us.

Instead, let us focus on Jesus. On Yahweh-Shalom. He is peace …and only through Him can we find peace.

Prayer: Almighty God, I thank you that even in today's world, I can find peace in you. Help me not to be overwhelmed by the constant bad reports of the world. Help me keep my eyes on you and be enveloped by your peace. Thank you for hearing and answering my prayer. Gratefully, In Jesus Loving Name I Pray, Amen."

Have a Blessed Sunday and God Bless you.
