It has been said that peace (Heb. shalom) will be the single greatest distinguishing mark upon the life of the believer in the end-times. We are living in that time, complete with its sinister, despicable, base, disloyal, unfaithful, off-the-wall, and out-of-nowhere reality. Influences come from so many sources all at once to challenge our senses and test our trust that His shalom will be the fruit in our lives in the midst of it all.
Among leaders, the one with peace of heart and mind has literally come to this hour for this time. For them, much depends upon God’s peace being resident—on the scene and ready to go—as umpire for their authority to govern. Visionaries too, trained in a less troubled time, are tested at their very core.
For all who are in the test, don’t back off! You have an eagle’s eye and your discernment is sharp. Pull close every spiritual sharpshooter you know and keep one on each flank at all times. Ask wise men for counsel. Stay humble; the precursor of failure is pride. Increase expectation anytime you are tested—always sow in famine! Make room for more quality time with the Lord. Laugh a lot.
You are a strategic company, brought forth for this time. With every step, the test measures you and shows… you have it!
Shalom—all is well!
