Peace in a storm...

August 30, 2008

It is very easy to say that all is peaceful. I mean when a hurricane is going all around you, you can say all is peaceful. That does not mean that it is, it just means that you can say it. True peace however comes from something else. A knowledge of God and what He wants with your life. Ezekiel tried to explain that to his countrymen prophets were going around saying that the city would not fall, all was at peace.

Ezekiel 13:10-11 CEV
(10) Those prophets refuse to be honest. They tell my people there will be peace, even though there's no peace to be found. They are like workers who think they can fix a shaky wall by covering it with paint.
(11) But when I send rainstorms, hailstones, and strong winds, the wall will surely collapse.

You see, just saying there is peace means that when the storm comes, peace is going away. Living in the peace, is another thing all together.
