We live in a world filled with turmoil, lies, deceit, murders. There are gang wars, national wars, family wars, even wars within many churches. Yet, Jesus said, “Peace I give unto you.” (John 14:27). So, why is peace so elusive?
The Bible tells us we will have trials in this life. But we do not handle them alone. God is with us in the trial and He will bring us through it.
Its impossible to go through life without conflict. So the next time conflict comes remember that Jesus is softly saying, “Blessed are the peacemakers.” Peace doesn’t just happen because we wish it were so…peace has to be made and peacemakers take the initiative.

Just as Gideon encountered Jehovah-Shalom at Ophra, so we desperately need to encounter Him today. Peace is the antithesis of fear. It provides perspective, encourages hope, builds confidence, inspires courage, and affirms our trust in the power of God.
