The Way of Peace

“The way of peace we have not known…”   Isaiah 59:8 Isaiah was concerned about God’s people who did not know the way of peace. They were out somewhere, wandering in the darkness and didn’t know how to get to peace.  Isaiah knew they didn’t have a flashlight or a cell phone.  All they had was the “still small voice” and they weren’t listening or obeying this voice.

Most of this world longs to be rescued from the troubles of life.  Although we can’t escape every problem, as Christians, we […]

We can’t see clearly what God sees.  It is only after we pass through a situation that we see it clearly.  We can then look down from a higher perspective and see what good came out of it, what we learned, and how God will use it.  I […]
