Know Peace

The angel announced to the shepherds,

“Glory to God in the highest heaven,
  and on earth peace to those 
on whom his favor rests.”
Luke 2:14

The strife of life is healed when we accept
the gift of Christmas
Who brings into our hearts the truth that
sets us free.
He establishes the peace we long for...
When He enables us to

~love our enemies~
~humble ourselves~
~serve when we are busy~
~rejoice in His love and promises in hard times~
~face down our fears with courage~
~make decisions based on truth and not people's expectations~
~cease striving...and know that He is God~

Isaiah 9:6-7

For to us a child is born,
to us a son is given,

    and the government will be on his shoulders.
And he will be called
    Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God,
    Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.
Of the greatness of his government and peace
    there will be no end.
He will reign on David’s throne
    and over his kingdom,
establishing and upholding it
    with justice and righteousness
    from that time on and forever.
The zeal of the Lord Almighty
    will accomplish this.
