Peace Like a River
Isaiah 48:18 (KJV) – O that thou hadst hearkened to my commandments! then had thy peace been as a river, and thy righteousness as the waves of the sea:
Have you ever sat beside a flowing river that is deep and wide? Not a lake, I am talking about a powerful river. In Isaiah, the prophet talks about Peace flowing like a river. This passage refers to an unstoppable peace.
When we keep the commandments of God’s law, we have Peace like a powerful river.
Isaiah 66:12a (KJV) – For thus saith the Lord, Behold, I will extend peace to her like a river
This is not pixie dust peace that makes the sensitive have a wonderous chill, NOT a little peace. The Peace that God grants His children is a victorious Peace that comes after conquering chaos and evil. The Peace of God is REAL and GENUINE.
Sit down beside a deep and wide river like the Tennessee River or the Ohio River and listen to its peaceful power. After a storm, you will see trees and nature’s debris floating down the river. As a mighty river, the Peace of God will flow.
Isaiah 66:13-16 (KJV)
13 As one whom his mother comforteth, so will I comfort you; and ye shall be comforted in Jerusalem.
14 And when ye see this, your heart shall rejoice, and your bones shall flourish like an herb: and the hand of the Lord shall be known toward his servants, and his indignation toward his enemies.
15 For, behold, the Lord will come with fire, and with his chariots like a whirlwind, to render his anger with fury, and his rebuke with flames of fire.
16 For by fire and by his sword will the Lord plead with all flesh: and the slain of the Lord shall be many.
Job 25:2 (CEV) – God is the one to fear,
because God is in control
and rules the heavens.
