Yahweh Shalom: The Lord is Peace
As we continue to deepen our relationship with God, it is imperative that we truly know who He is. We know that He is our everything, Yes, but I would like to invite you to go on a little journey with me. The goal is to end this exploration with a better understanding and knowledge of who God is, through the study of some of the names of God.
It is my continued endeavor to grow in my faith in God and who He is, day by day. It is in the simple knowledge of who God is that my trust in Him will increase.
Today I would like us to journey alongside with Yahweh Shalom, The Lord is Peace.
Our God, the one and true living God, is Yahweh Shalom, The Lord is Peace. He is the source of all peace. When we find peace in Him, we find wholeness in this broken world. We find the true connection that provides peace that trickles down into all areas of our lives.
The peace we receive from Yahweh Shalom, is like that of an electricity source. No matter what we try to do, if we turn on a lamp, and light does not shine through it, we cannot produce that light on our own. We cannot produce that light without being connected to the main power source of energy. We can change the bulb. We can plug and unplug it or even move it to another outlet. But unless our local connection is connected to the source, that light will never shine. Our entire home will be in darkness and without the energy that it needs to properly function.
So it is with the peace that we seek. We can try to find it without being connected to Yahweh Shalom, The Lord is Peace, but it will never shine through our entire lives. We will find ourselves in dark places trying to find peace in the things of this world. We will never have the peace that Yahweh Shalom, the Lord is Peace, provides. Amazingly, there is a remedy to this problem.
Get connected to the source of all peace!
As long as we stay connected to Him, we will be complete in God. We will find safety and rest for our weary souls.
