Nothing Missing – Nothing Broken

And His name will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Eternal Father, Prince of Peace. (Isaiah 9:6 NASB)

Prince of Peace

Let’s talk for just a bit about this word Peace.

Shalom

  • completeness, soundness, welfare, peace
    • completeness (in number)
    • safety, soundness (in body)
    • welfare, health, prosperity
    • peace, quiet, tranquillity, contentment
    • peace, friendship
    • of human relationships
    • with God especially in covenant relationship
    • peace (from war)
    • peace (as adjective)

(from Blueletterbible.org)

I love the way Charles Stock of Life Center, Harrisburg, PA puts it

Nothing missing, Nothing broken

What are you going to do with that?
Got anything that’s broken?
Got anything that’s missing?

Well, the Father has assigned to His Son the Prince to be the administrator of Peace.

Check His resume:

One day Jesus headed over to the country of the Gadarenes. There He ran into a man with more problems than you could shake a stick at if you were so inclined.

A few words from the Master and – Shalom

And they came to Jesus and observed the man who had been demon-possessed sitting down, clothed and in his right mind, the very man who had had the “legion”; (Mark 5:15 NASB)

Tell us your Shalom story?
What broken thing has He mended?
What missing thing has He restored?

We would love to hear your testimony. It will stir up our faith.

    Hallelujah Bro Ben! I'll testify. Both my mind and my heart were broken for many years. I suffered from panic attacks and lived in fear - fear of rejection, fear of betrayal, fear of man... My heart was broken and bitter, and filled with rage against those who harmed me, but then Jesus began to woo me with His love, His mercy and His grace. He captured my heart, and with His perfect love, He cast out ALL fear. He forgave me, and lavished me with His love, and as He continued to pour His love into me, it washed away my bitterness and my rage. As I received His forgiveness, I was able to give forgiveness to those who had harmed me... As He began to fill my thoughts, He kept me in perfect peace... I am forever grateful!

    Well, mine's so long (you know how wordy I am, Ben!)--but it's the Easter 2011 divine intervention and deliverance story. Thanks to Jesus, I'm no longer walking in blind depression and despair (and bitter unforgiveness, resentment). I was 59, saved since 13--but in the week preceding Easter 2011, I finally caught the revelation and came to KNOW Jesus. Since then, I've been enjoying the Abundant Life He came to give us! I'm walking in His Grace with JOY JOY JOY, overflowing--and I feel unstoppable in Him! Easter has lasted year-round, and meshes with beautiful Christmas--so it's always a spiritual celebration at "party-Caddo's". Oh, and Ben? I loved the message on PEACE--"nothing broken, nothing missing" in my life anymore, Hallelujah!!! God bless you and the fam, brother--love, sis Caddo

        Oh man - what a blast from the past. when i was in High school (yes folks that was 40 years ago) my church had a rock band called the Sons of Thunder, and they did this song - I love it!!!!! I have not heard this in decades, and just the guitar at the beginning gave me goose bumps. WOW - thanks Caddo!

    I can't listen to Caddo's song right now ( someone sleeping near by!) but will come back for that!
    I love this message too and had never thought of it this way . .nothing missing and nothing broken. 🙂
    I had tried to commit suicide twice, used drugs and alcohol daily. I was a mess. (okay, I'm still kind of a mess! haha!) While expecting our first child, the aerobics teacher where I went to exercise at, invited me to church. I went forward at the first altar call, awash in tears of gratefulness. He took away those suicidal thoughts and took away my desire for drugs and alcohol. I never knew life could be so sweet as it has been, living forgiven and free in Jesus!
    God bless you, Mr. Ben, and give you peace abundantly!
