Can Satan give you peace? – Response to a question

The question was asked, “Can Satan give you peace?” The answer is a resounding, “No!” Satan has no peace of his own, being hatred personified. So how can someone who does not have any peace of their own give peace – true peace – to someone else?

Only God can give peace because He is peace in Himself. In fact, one of the markers of a lack of the necessary centrality of God in people’s lives is a lack of peace, because where God truly resides, there is peace.

Is God really my father?

Many have kept on asking the question: “Is God really my father?” The answer is strongly in the affirmative. God the first Person of the Holy Trinity is your Father because He made you – He created you by willing that you be born. He, therefore, loves you with an intensity and profundity of love you cannot begin to imagine. He cares about you, even though you may think otherwise, and wants to be a central part of your life so He can bless you in this life and beyond.

Isaiah (49:14-16) said, “Zion was saying, ‘Yahweh has abandoned me, the Lord has forgotten me.’ Does a woman forget her baby at the breast or fail to cherish the son of her womb? Yet even if these forget, I will never forget you. See, I have branded you on the palms of My hands.”

If only you knew the unparalleled love God the Father has for you, no matter what you have done in your life! If only you knew.
