People, peace and politics. People dying, peace negotiators trying their hardest and Nations politicking. Movement on many fronts – some promising and some not so promising. This is the fog of war. Who exactly is doing what and why? What will be the outcome?
It is easy to give in to despair, or be confused in prayer. So let’s not concentrate on people, peace or politics. The Prince of Peace has to be moved with compassion towards us. The great Victor of Calvary has to stamp down on Satan. The One who holds the world in his hands – all of it – must act for us. So keep focused on him, and like Amos ( Amos 7:1-3) let us continue to urge and beseech our King to act. This is the way to peace – and the only way to peace.
