SCRIPTURE: To get the most out of this devotion, set aside time to read the scriptures referenced throughout.
Bible in One Year: 2 Corinthians 9-13
If you could pick one word to describe the world today, what would it be? With everything going on, few of us would choose the word peaceful. Nevertheless, God promises us this very thing.
The Hebrew word for peace is shalom, which means so much more than the absence of conflict. It’s a term that speaks of completeness and soundness. It is the ideal both for our lives and for the world—a return to creation as it was before sin and separation. In other words, it’s perfect peace, which is possible only with God.
Look at Isaiah 11:1-10. Does the prophet’s description of the future kingdom seem impossible to you? We’re so accustomed to sin and death that it’s difficult to imagine a world without violence. “They will not hurt or destroy in all My holy mountain,” God promises, “for the earth will be full of the knowledge of the Lord as the waters cover the sea” (v. 9). Such is the greatness of God’s shalom—a reality can we experience even now.
Think about it
• Spend time reflecting on God’s promises. How can focusing on them help you experience peace here and now?
