Our Father God is the author of peace.

1.  Our Father God is the author of peace. "Now the God of peace be with you all, Amen." (Romans 15:33).

2.  Jesus Christ, the Son, is called the Prince of Peace. "And His name will be called Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace" (Isaiah 9:6).

3.  His peace is still available for you.  "...of the increase of His government and peace there will be no end" (Isaiah 9:7).

4.  Jesus died on the cross and paid for your peace. He took the punishment for you. "...the chastisement for our peace and well being was upon Him, and with the stripes that wounded Him we are healed and made whole."

5.  The Peace of God is a gift to you. Jesus said, "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).

6.  The Holy Spirit can give you an Anointing of Peace. "For the Kingdom of God is not food and drink, but righteousness, peace, and joy in the Holy Spirit" (Romans 14:17).

7.  We are to be peacemakers and live in peace. "Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called the Sons of God" (Matthew 5:9). "And let the peace fo God rule in your hearts, to which also you were called in one body: and be thankful" (Colossians 3:15).

8.  Receive his Anointing of Peace. "Now may the God of peace Himself sanctify you (and set you apart for service) completely; and may your whole spirit, soul, and body be preserved blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ" (I Thessalonians 5:23).

On Mother's Day, May 8th, 2005, my mother, Sue Campbell, went to be with the Lord. She was 89 years of age and had enjoyed a happy and fruitful life. Many have said, "I am so sorry that she had to die on Mother's Day." My granddaugher, who was only ten years old at the time said, "It's alright because she was the grandest mother of all!"


Mother graduated from college when she had four children. She served as a pastor's wife for 50 years and helped countless couples and women to find a strong faith in the Lord. People were drawn to her by her magnetic smile and the joy of the Lord that filled her life.


When Mother was eleven years of age, Jesus appeared to her in a vision as she made a public declaration to receive the Lord into her heart. This life changing experience happened to Mother in her little country church. From that moment on, she never turned away from the One who gave her new life!

Many of us could walk in a greater measure of peace if we would stop talking in such a negative fashion. Often times we hear people saying destructive words such as, "This is driving me crazy," or "I think I'm losing my mind!"  


As we say any negative words, we're opening ourselves to trouble. James 3:2 says that we can control our whole body if we will not offend in word. We need to understand that the speech center is located in the brain and the brain sends out our words to every nerve in our body.

 

Please meditate on the following verses concerning the words of your mouth...

 

Proverbs 10:11, 32 - "The mouth of the righteous man is a well of life: but violence covereth the mouth of the wicked."

 

Proverbs 12:13,14,18,22 - "The wicked is snared by the transgression of his lips: but the just shall come out of trouble. A man shall be satisfied with good by the fruit of his mouth: and the recompence of a man's hands shall be rendered unto him. There is that speaketh like the piercing of a sword: but the tongue of the wise is health. Lying lips are an abomination to the Lord: but they that deal truly are his delight."
