Irene. PEACE.

Almighty Loving God.
 
He is Lord of all.  Lord means: Owner and Decider, with Power of deciding.

 
He sent His Son as Savior of the world to love us; to save us from a badly and eternally missed mark.
 
He is pouring out His Holy Spirit upon us as we turn to Him (be still and know).

He lovingly wants us to be “found in peace.”

He alone can give peace and true love, not as the world could possibly ever give.

2 Peter 3.14 ends with such a precious word:  Irene.  PEACE.

A screenshot of 2 Peter 3:14 from the interlinear is attached.

The goodness of God is without end.

Thank you precious and loving Abba Father for You Yourself, Source of all the good we have ever known, and will ever know.

A song from Colossians 3.15,16:

Let the Peace of God

God bless and encourage you and yours in Jesus’ Name.
 
Love in Jesus,
Bob

Thanksgiving

In the midst of all the generic “thanks” being given today [Thanksgiving day in the US], I long for “thanks to be given to God.”

“Giving thanks always concerning all things in the Name of our Lord Jesus Christ, TO GOD, even the Father”
–Ephesians 5:20

“Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights, with Whom can be no variation, nor turning shadow.”
–James 1:17

Giving “thanks” is such a hollow and disappointing thing without thanking everlasting God, the true Source of all the goodness we know.
