…To guide our feet into the way of peace.Luke 1:79
There is a way reserved for every son and daughter of God; The Way of Peace. Jesus, the Prince of Peace, calls us into this way each and every day. “Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, and you will find rest for your souls.” (Matthew 11:29)
As children of God, we have access to the wealth and provision of our King, Jesus. Unlike earthly kings, Jesus is always ready and willing to share the wealth of His kingdom; joy, peace, goodness, faithfulness… He calls us to “learn from Me.”
Learn from Me
I love Jesus for this. Learn from me… the words speak of a relationship. You and I both know, in order to really learn something, we must work closely alongside our mentor or teacher. The closer we become to our teacher, the more depth of understanding we get. Right?
This is what Jesus is calling us into – a learning relationship. As we abide with Jesus and walk with him, learning and being taught by the Prince of Peace, we will find ourselves walking in The Way of Peace.
He is the Way
The Way of Peace is found in a person; Jesus. Think of the beauty and simplicity of this: Peace is not a state of mind, an elusive pathway few can find, or an absence of conflict… “He Himself is our peace…” (Ephesians 2:14).
So, are you feeling disheveled? Overwhelmed and anxious? Jesus is calling, “…learn from Me…find rest for your soul.” He is our Peace, our Comforter, and our Provider.
Walk with Jesus today…walk The Way of Peace.
All to Jesus!
