Hebrew Name: Jehovah Shalom
God’s peace is what we need in our lives. Our Creator is Peace. As the scripture in Judges 6:24 states: Gideon built an altar to the Lord there and named it Yahweh-Shalom (which means “the Lord is peace”). Therefore, if there is chaos in your life, that would be the work of the Adversary, the devil. Job tells us in chapter 25:2: God is powerful and dreadful. He enforces peace in the heavens.
- For God is not a God of disorder but of peace. 1Co 14:33
- The God of peace will soon crush Satan under your feet. Rom 16:20

A Prayer for You
I like how Paul closed the two letters to the Thessalonians therefore: I ask you, Lord, to bless those who have taken the time to reflect on your promises of peace. Also, as your scriptures below proclaim, that those who have read your words would be made holy in every way and You would give your peace at all times and in every situation. In Jesus’ Name, Amen!
- May the God of peace make you holy in every way. 1Th 5:23
