It is well, with my soul
In a personal way we have broken the peace with God. In our prosperity, there are many of us who have broken the peace with God. In our poverty we prayed hard for a crust of bread to eat and a corner to sleep in.
One step away from extreme poverty, many have broken the peace with God and pulled away from the very qualities that made them successful.
Isaiah 9:6 describes Christ as the “Prince of Peace” because He can help to restore the peace between mankind and God.
1 Timothy 2:5 says I’m “There is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus.”
Paul tried to explain it to the Romans in Romans 5:1 when he said, “Being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ.”
When “Shiloh”-the sense of being at peace with God, comes there is an amazing change in our attitudes about life.
When Shiloh comes, that which once disturbed us, doesn’t seem to bother us anymore!
When Shiloh comes, that which once seemed important is no longer germane to our quality of life.
When Shiloh comes, storms may rise and winds may blow, but our anchor holds!
When Shiloh comes, we can say triumphantly, despite what happens in the world, “It is well with my soul.”
