One of the greatest blessings God can give you is peace. If you have peace in your marriage, enjoy peace with your kids, can sleep in peace and have peace with God, you are blessed.
How can we have peace?
“And this man shall be the peace, when the Assyrian shall come into our land: and when he shall tread in our palaces, then shall we raise against him seven shepherds, and eight principal men.”
The Assyrians were the enemies of Israel and sometimes enemies or “Assyrians” like sickness, sin, failure, and problems can invade your house. To stop this, you have to invite the man called “Peace” a.k.a. “the Prince of Peace” i.e. Jesus into the situation.
You can do this by inviting Him into your heart by prayer. After this step he will help us build our capacity to defeat the enemy by grooming us to be shepherds and principal men. A shepherd is symbolic of a priest. Principal men or rulers is representative of kings. In other words, He will make us kings and priests. As priests, we will sacrifice and lead holy lives and as kings, He gives us the power of the Holy Spirit to overcome the devil. The sum effect will be peace.
Invite Jesus into your situation and enjoy peace!
