Advent: Week Four – Peace

Shaking, feeble legs.
Having walked and wandered.
A people with weak knees are given a place to stand.
At first, it seems a promise of land.

But the promise is more than dirt conquered by sword
It comes as a covenant that He will be Lord

So to cease with the striving
and cease with unrest.
Cease with your worries, anxiety and stress.

A Kingdom Forever, established by God
A son who’s father will always be present with rod.

A father correcting, and guiding with love,
that can never be taken, and more than enough.

A long list of “what if”’s now find they can cease,
With the arrival of God’s new covenant of Peace.

“And I will appoint a place for my people Israel and will plant them, so that they may live in their own place, and be disturbed no more; and evildoers shall afflict them no more, as formerly, from the time that I appointed judges over my people Israel; and I will give you rest from all your enemies. Moreover, the Lord declares to you that the Lord will make you a house. When your days are fulfilled and you lie down with your ancestors, I will raise up your offspring after you, who shall come forth from your body, and I will establish his kingdom. He shall build a house for my name, and I will establish the throne of his kingdom for ever. I will be a father to him, and he shall be a son to me. When he commits iniquity, I will punish him with a rod such as mortals use, with blows inflicted by human beings. But I will not take my steadfast love from him, as I took it from Saul, whom I put away from before you. Your house and your kingdom shall be made sure for ever before me; your throne shall be established for ever.”
2 Samuel 7:10-16
