Jesus came to earth to lead a broken world to a place where we could be made whole again. He came to reconcile us with God, bridging the gap created by our sin. Jesus came to soothe our anxieties and give us a sound mind. The peace He brought into the world at Christmas allows us to be content and rest in Him no matter what chaos surrounds us.
Isaiah revealed that a child would be born who would be called the Prince of Peace.
Whatever we are facing in this season - sickness, a broken relationship, depression, or loneliness - we can allow Jesus’ peace to comfort us right where we are. We don’t have to get to the end of our struggle to experience wholeness. Jesus wants to quiet our spirits with His love and perfect our trust in Him.
We can weather this storm, complete in Him.
"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." (Isaiah 9:6)
