Morning Thought: Peace means much more than what you first think. The root of the Hebrew word ‘shalom’ (peace) means completion, fulfillment and wholeness. The peace of God is like a builder that works relentlessly until every gap in your walls is restored and every gate is repaired. He wants rest and fruitfulness in your walls and the enemy unable to penetrate. Let the Lord’s shalom do its work in you today. “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper [shalom] you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future” (Jeremiah 29:11, NIV).
