Day 76/365

“There is no peace, says the Lord, for the wicked.” (Isa 48:22‬ ‭AMPC‬‬) I saw this yesterday in the FFZ and wanted to share it.

Human beings often live unhappy lives as we flee from pain and pursue pleasure, trying to find comfort in the material world. A person does not realize that the reason for his constant angst is that he does not have peace with God.

When a man does not have peace with God, he cannot have peace with himself or with others. He rages at those who tread on his dignity or offend his pride, and he justifies his own actions at the expense of relationships with his friends and family.

He uses other people to try to prop up his fragile ego. He attempts to slake his thirsty soul with vices and to satisfy his fleshly appetites with indulgences, but all of it is useless.

Unless we have peace with God, there is no peace. "'There is no peace for the wicked,' says the LORD" (Isaiah 48:22).

The good news is that there can be peace with God. The Apostle Paul says, "While we were [still God's] enemies we were reconciled to God through the death of His Son" (Romans 5:10). God wants peace with human beings more than human beings want peace with one another. That is why He gave His Son as a sacrifice.

Jesus - a peace offering between God and man. ❤️
