Day 354: He Shall Be Our Peace (Micah 4-5; Revelation 11)

“And He shall stand and feed His flock in the strength of the Lord, in the majesty of the name of the Lord His God; And they shall abide, for now He shall be great to the ends of the earth; and this One shall be peace.” -Micah 5:4-5

This chapter provides one of the clearest Old Testament prophecies of Christ’s coming, and the key description is “and this One shall be peace.”

This time of year, we hear that a lot: peace on earth. It’s a buzz word that appears everywhere, but do we actually live out this peace?

I recently found this quote and I love it:

“Worry is belief gone wrong. Because you don’t believe that God will get it right. But peace – peace is belief that exhales. Because you believe that God’s provision is everywhere – like air….we could be someone else’s peace – someone else’s God-given provision.” -Unknown

Be peace this season. When crowded lines in stores leave people pushing, shoving, and cutting in line…be peace. When family drama threatens to erupt at Christmas dinner, keep the peace. Be the person who is calm in the midst of chaos, whose faith is deeply rooted when doubt overflows.

The only way you can be that peace is if you are abide in Christ. Because He is peace and He fills His children with peace. Not just at Christmas time, but all year round.
