Yahweh, Day 296

  Day 296
Yahweh: Our Peace #2

Micah 5:4-5 (Holman Christian Standard Bible)
“He will stand and shepherd them in the strength of Yahweh,
in the majestic name of Yahweh His God.
They will live securely, for then His greatness will extend
to the ends of the earth. He will be their peace…”

We walk today on holy ground.

“He will be their peace.”  We saw yesterday that this word for peace, shalom, means to complete and to fulfill.  We saw that God’s shalom is often accomplished in the most difficult of circumstances.  My dear pilgrim, we see today the moment that true shalom was attained, and this on Calvary.  We see this in John 19:30.

“When Jesus had received the sour wine, He said, "It is finished!" Then bowing His head, He gave up His spirit.” (HCSB)

Actually, Jesus cried out one word that we have translated “It is finished!”  The word that He shouted out that echoed through time and eternity was, shalom!  Shalom, the word of our salvation.  It is accomplished, it is completed, it is fulfilled.  And in the sacrifice of our Messiah, we see and find, shalom.  This, the world cannot give.

This, is in The Name.
