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.

    Definitely would appreciate receiving any devotional available. Is there also anything you have put together for study guides of N.T. books or Psalms or Proverbs?

    I am interested in receiving more devotionals after receiving forwarded messages from my Christian friend. In fact, she started a group of ladies to get together, once a week, and discuss God’s word and to pray. We call ourselves the Friday CEO’s (Christians Encouraging Others).

    We need the Lord to establish everlasting peace for us. That’s the only way it’ll happen.
