Establishing Peace

By   •   July 22   •   Topics: ,


Before the Big Four Conference in Geneva I watched President Eisenhower kneel in a chapel and ask God for divine guidance in the deliberations to follow. I felt sure that God would answer his earnest prayer. I believe that He did, for President Eisenhower during those days displayed the spirit of a true peacemaker on the international level. The only corrective measure in establishing peace is for men as individuals to know the peace of God. Though I am not wholly averse to movements which strive in one way or another for world peace, I have a strong conviction that such peace will never come unless there is a spiritual dynamic at the core. I pray for wars to cease, just as I pray for crime to stop; but I know that the basic cause of both crime and war is the inherent sinfulness of human nature. The world cannot be reborn until men are born again and are at peace with God.

Prayer for the day

Heavenly Father, I pray for the peace of the world through individuals surrendering to Your Son, Jesus Christ. Bless all today who are spreading the Gospel here and abroad.

    I just wanted to say that Rev Graham has been a consistent role model in my life. With all the changes in the world, Rev Graham knew to keep his message simple. He knew what to say to people when he preached. If he were a bit younger I would have liked to see him in the white house.

    God Bless you for your tireless work and when you go home to be with the lord, may you get the best room.

    Thank you

    Yes, Dr. Billy Graham, the basic belief trust and reverential fear for God is missing, which President Eisenhower had. It also means President Eisenhower was aware as leaders gathering for the Geneva meeting could only talk about peace but can not bring it about. Because as you have mentioned we are inherently just the opposite of peace because of the sin in us. President knew that the only one who could give peace has to be approached, none of the leaders can either give or get, however long they might deliberate at a conference. Because in most of such meetings ego would be ruling the leaders. Like President, everyone has to seek the Living God for peace. For that we need to know this Living God.

    This devotion today sums up what I believe with all my heart and pray for! I just pray that our next president will be a Christian with Christian values and will make decisions as a Christian. I believe that is the only way our country can be turned around. Prayer, prayer, prayer!
