Dec 12 – The End of War
Nation will not fight against nation and neither will they learn war anymore.
What does “The end of war” mean to you?
I am reminded of the iconic picture taken on V-J Day in 1945 in Times Square of a sailor kissing a nurse.
To me it represents the joy of knowing war is over. We can have that same joy knowing that God wins the final battle. By trusting God, we can live in the present with our minds on eternity, knowing that our God reigns.
Isaiah gives us an amazing picture of what that looks like. God will be highest, all people will be drawn to Him and there will be no more war.
As the mother of a serviceman who has been in theaters of war in Iraq and Afghanistan and who is now deployed to Bahrain away from his family and friends, I continually pray for his safety and well-being.
I look forward to the day when all war will cease!
Lord Jesus, as we await your coming, we pray for peace in the world and peace for our souls. May we lift you higher so others will be drawn to you. You are the Lord of miracles and worthy of worship so we praise you for what is to come. We pray in your Holy Name. Amen
