We have looked at Immanuel as
- The Counsellor – the One who listens & responds.
- Mighty God – the One who acts on our behalf
- Our Adoptive Father – the One who welcomes us into his family.
Jesus our Immanuel, comes to us as the One who listens, responds, acts & welcomes.
He comes for one reason & one reason only.
He comes to bring us peace.
We desperately need peace:
- -peace with God
- -peace with others
- -peace with ourselves.
Jesus comes as Prince of Peace
From Panic to Peace
As we grow in our experience of Jesus as Immanuel ; as the Mighty God & as our Everlasting Father we move from anxiety, fear, panic, guilt & shame to acceptance, belonging, security & peace.
We learn to live in real relationship with this Prince of Peace who loves us enough to die for us & continue to live with us.
We learn how to exchange our panic for his peace.
We choose to live in relationship with Him daily.
The Divine Exchange
Don’t worry about anything. Instead, pray about everything.Tell God what you need. Thank him for all he has done. You will experience God’s peace which exceeds anything you can understand . His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus.
Anxious & overwhelmed we take our panic to Him.
Jesus listens & acts on our behalf.
He holds us gently in His arms & quiets the storm.
Panic is replaced by peace.
