Monthly Thoughts from Pastor Fred Naumann

OUR PEACE

by Pastor Fred Naumann

The world cannot touch the source of the mature believer’s peace because it is lodged in the very character of God.

  1. Grace of God. All things which the believer has and uses to sustain life and enter into eternal life have been provided by the grace of God. He exists by God’s gifts alone. He might be compared to the infant whose sole existence is determined by parents or to sheep whose existence is determined by the shepherd.
  2. Power of God. The power of God is able to supply any and all human needs. All powers combined are overpowered by His might and must react to the will of the believer’s Father. Even death and grave have sting nor victory beyond Father’s will.
  3. The love of God supplies all that is necessary for time and eternity. Again, and again the Father invites the believer to petition, not lest Father forget, but, rather, that His child remembers the source of all blessing.
  4. The Wisdom of God supplies the right thing. God is the Creator, Redeemer, Sanctifier Wo, with the perfect vision of today and tomorrow, is able to select that which is needed for full life and peace.

Numbers 6:24-26 The Lord bless thee and keep thee; the Lord make His face shine upon thee and be gracious unto thee; the Lord lift up His countenance upon thee and give thee peace.
