DEVOTIONS-Establishing Peace 09/06/2016


Therefore, since we have been made right in God's sight by faith, we have peace with God because of what Jesus Christ our Lord has done for us. -Romans 5:1

Before the 1955 Big Four Conference in Geneva, President Eisenhower knelt in a chapel and asked God for divine guidance in the deliberations to follow. He felt sure that God would answer his earnest prayer. Many believe that He did, for President Eisenhower during those days displayed the spirit of a true peacemaker on an International level. The only corrective measure in establishing peace is for men as individuals to know the peace of God. Though I am not wholly averse to movements which strive in one way or another for world peace, I have a strong conviction that such peace will never come unless there is a spiritual dynamic at the core. I pray for wars to cease, just as I pray for crime to stop; but I know that the basic cause of both crime and war is the inherent sinfulness of human nature. The world cannot be reborn until men are born again and are at peace with God.

Prayer for the day

Heavenly Father, I pray for the peace of the world through individuals surrendering to Your Son, Jesus Christ. Bless all today who are spreading the Gospel here and abroad.
