Nothing missing, nothing broken.

β€œFor He Himself is our peace, who has made both one, and has broken down the middle wall of separation” Ephesians 2:14, NKJV.

“Peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid” John 14:27, NKJV.

We usually define peace as a state of the quietness of mind, but God’s peace is much deeper. Peace means “Shalom” in Hebrew and “Eirini” in Greek. It means to be complete, to be whole, to restore, to have nothing missing, nothing broken. Here’s an example.

A couple I know had a new house built. It wasn’t just any house; it was made with many antique items, from the front door, hardwood flooring shipped in, the man cave, and more. However, the one thing that was missing was her valuable kitchen cabinets. Although they had everything else, the house wasn’t complete, it wasn’t whole until those cabinets were installed. After several months, the wife told me they finally got their kitchen cabinets. Now, her home was Shalom. Eirini. Complete–nothing missing, nothing broken.

You may have many things in your life, but you don’t feel you are shalom, or your life isn’t whole or complete. I don’t know what you may be missing, but you may be missing some boldness. You may be missing some healing from your past to move forward. You may need some self-control or confidence. You could need patience until a desire comes, a rekindled fire, or overcoming something that’s hindered you.

Jesus is your peace. He is Who makes you whole and complete. He became our peace, restoring our relationship with God, and He is our peace no matter where we find ourselves in life. He supernaturally makes the difference. Believe on Him to fill what’s missing, and supernaturally give your life His peace.

Prayer: Thank you, Jesus, for being my peace. My shalom. I pray for your shalom to manifest in my life. Supernaturally complete me and make me whole. I let you become what’s missing. I’m restored to the Father, and I have all I need in my life. In Jesus’ name, Amen!
