Episode 442

TODAY’S READING:

“Then Gideon built an altar there to the Lord and called it, The Lord Is Peace.”

Judges 6.24

 

The English phrase, “The Lord is Peace,” translates the Hebrew, Jehovah Shalom.

 

6 Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. 7 And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.

Philippians 4:6-7

 

16 Now may the Lord of peace himself give you peace at all times and in every way. The Lord be with all of you.

2 Thessalonians 3:16

 

Shalom, Peace be with you. Such powerful words. Simple but life-changing. A lot of the time, we are handed cards we didn’t want. We are given situations and circumstances that make us say, I do not understand why II am walking through this valley, Lord. How much longer I really cannot take it anymore.

 

We serve a God who is our Jehovah Shalom; He is the true full embodiment of Peace.

 

And He lives in you. So if we were to look at all of the cards we’ve been handed, and we look at them through the lens of Peace, I think we could make life more enjoyable. Imagine having the full confidence that He is who He says He is, and He promises to give us Peace.

 

PRAYER

Father God, you reside, and you dwell in us, Lord. You are the full entirety of Peace. It is who you are; it is what you give. So Lord, today we need our Jehovah Shalom. We need Peace to help us navigate these unknown territories; we need Peace to help us internalize the unwanted situations we may face. We need you Peace as an anchor in these waves. We love you, and we ask that you bless us sniff watch over us. It is in your Holy Name that we pray, AMEN!

Hi, I'm Ali.
I want to encourage you on your faith journey!

I'm the coffee obsessed baker from Miami, FL who got too busy to find time to read scripture everyday. I knew my life was better with Jesus and I knew I wasn't the only one struggling with finding alone time with God every morning, so I put my dreams of opening a bakery aside and set out to produce a five minute daily devotional. What first started as an email chain, has now flourished into a beautiful community and I am so happy you are here!

MY TESTIMONY

We are a faith based community in pursuit of daily prayer. All it takes is five minutes - we know you're busy but He loves you still.
