I Am Peace

Isaiah 45:7 I am the one who forms light and creates darkness; the one who brings about peace and creates calamity. I am the Lord, who accomplishes all these things

We looked at “I Am the One Who formed light and creates darkness.” He also said, “I Am the One Who brings about peace and creates calamity.” As apoplectic we can create a false sense of peace. We seem peaceful on the outside, we act peaceful to others, but on the inside things can be quite different. The only way for pure peace is through God, Who is the creator if peace. He is the only One Who can give us peace. We see God combining opposites; light and darkness, peace and calamity. We would not know what peace means without knowing calamity, nor what light means without darkness. That God creates all emphasizes He is alone all-powerful and in control of all that was, is or will ever be. It amazes me that with all God is and does He actin ally loves me (and you) more than any of his other creations. He loves us so much He was willing for His Word to become flesh in Jesus Christ to show us His live and to reunite us into His Image.
