Good Morning Warrior!
Word for the Day:
“No Peace For The Wicked”
Text: 2 Kings 9:30-31
“Now when Jehu had come to Jezreel, Jezebel heard of it; and she put paint on her eyes and adorned her head, and looked through a window.
Then, as Jehu entered at the gate, she said, “Is it peace, Zimri, murderer of your master?”
The Truth that there is “No Peace For The Wicked is on our menu for Breakfast this morning.
Oh how great the trouble is for the heart and the nation that is ruled by wickedness. This was the picture of Jezebel and Israel. No Peace For The Wicked!
Consumed by Pride and Lust Jezebel had no peace. Pride and Lust are never satisfied. Like a leech, Pride has two sisters “Give” and “Give.” (Prov.30:15)
Pride and Lust are “self-consuming.” There is no Peace for the wicked.
So great was her wickedness that Jezebel mocked the judgement of God! Think of that: can dust stand in the face of God and mock His Judgement? That’s what Jezebel did, and this is what the troubled and apostate heart does. How terrifying this is to even think of. Instead of falling down in fear and trembling with repentance she “puts paint on her eyes and adorns her head;” like a Queen who is expecting a guest! Jezebel’s guest was God’s Judgement!
As there is No Peace for the wicked - There Is Peace For the Righteous!
“Therefore, having been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ,
through whom also we have access by faith into this grace in which we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God.” (Rom.5:1-2).
This is how the Warrior stands out in this world of wickedness as “the Light of the World;” by walking in Peace With God!
Yes, it’s true that there is No Peace For The Wicked; but it’s also true that There Is Peace With God for the Righteous Who Walk with Him! And, with our Helper Holy Spirit we Can Walk in the midst of this sin-sick and troubled world as Children of the Light of Peace.
Be the Light of Peace Warrior!
