Speaking Peace

I came across this verse in the Midday Office in The Divine Hours: “I will listen to what the Lord God is saying, for he is speaking peace to his faithful people and to those who turn their hearts to him.”

I came across this verse in the Midday Office in The Divine Hours:

“I will listen to what the Lord God is saying, for he is speaking peace to his faithful people and to those who turn their hearts to him.”

Psalm 85:8

I think that’s probably the best news I’ve heard in awhile — the Lord is speaking peace to his people. What better word is there in the midst of a scurrying, hurried world? What better prophetic utterance is there in the midst of a war-torn, life-stripping, global community? May we, as God’s people, hear the soft word he’s speaking.

The Prince of Peace comes, bringing his kingdom of righteousness, peace and joy. And he is reconciling all things in heaven and on earth to himself by making peace through is blood. May he be welcomed by his peace-filled followers. May our lives be the soft voice of Yahweh’s shalom.

Peace.
