God's Character

For a long time I have been amazed by the vastness of God's character. I recently purchased a small devotional called "Wonderful Names of our Wonderful Lord" that has descriptions of the names used for God in the bible. My intention is to post one per week with the hope that others will comment on how God is demonstrating that particular trait in their lives. I think we're all inspired to see the many ways God is working in our friends and family.

Shiloh (Peacemaker)
"The sceptre shall not depart from Judah, nor a lawgiver from between his feet, until Shiloh come; and unto him shall the gathering of the people be." Genesis 49:10

Israel must walk in darkness under the law, until the years may seem eternity, but "Shiloh" comes at last and peace. Has Shiloh come to thee? And has the peace which passeth understanding, the peace He made entered into thy soul? For Shiloh came and conquered every foe that could harass thee, and stands today offering the peace He made "that passeth knowledge." Hast thou received it? Has Shiloh come in vain for thee? Begin today and "in everything by prayer and supplication make thy requests known to him," and Shiloh's peace shall "keep thy heart."

I needed this todayas my anxiety has been particularily bad!
Thank you God that You are our peacemaker and that You use Your faithful servants (and my wonderful friend) to show us who You are.
