God’s peace or shalom is a blessing, greeting or farewell. It means so much more than peace or an absence of war or fighting. Shalom includes: wholeness, completeness, nothing missing, excellent health, prosperity, safety–in mind, body and property, secure, reward, free from fault, unharmed, submitted to God, sound, uninjured, restoration of what is lost or stolen, happy, friendly and resting.
Jesus said to his disciples, before laying down his life, on the cross: “Peace (shalom) I leave with you; My [own] peace (shalom) I now give and bequeath to you. Not as the world gives do I give to you. Do not let your hearts be troubled, neither let them be afraid. [Stop allowing yourselves to be agitated and disturbed; and do not permit yourselves to be fearful and intimidated and cowardly and unsettled.]” (John 14:27 AMPC) Jesus, the Prince of Peace (Shalom), gives his peace or shalom to all of his disciples, including you!
Shalom! Rest, in Jesus, your Shalom!
