Strength and Peace



My adult life has basically been consistent when it comes to how I leave a conversation – I bless.  Late last year I began to use the benedictions of Paul and have now been concluding with – grace and peace.  What I am hoping for when I do that is that God will bless you with strength (that will come out of grace) and peace.

It is His joy that is our strength.

When God puts on a show for us, He is not entertaining us, He is seeking our worship, He would like to see us in awe of His power and majesty and glory – His very visible power – so we stand at attention and we dress our best to honour Him.

We probably have never heard the voice of God in the OT – the thunder.  We have never seen His brilliance, His face streaming brightness as others have in the OT and the NT.  We were not a part of a generation that experienced God in the flood.

If we did, we would fall on our knees – we would call out, Glory!”

With that worship in our hearts, God makes us strong and God gives His people peace.

“Peace and strength with God through tragedy”

Strength and Peace
