'God has given Him the Name which is above every name... And He shall be called Wonderful Counsellor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.' (Philippians 2:9, Isaiah 9:6)

I love to boast about my Jesus. My God is the greatest, most wonderful, most powerful God in the world. And He loves you! Jesus is the King of Peace - He brings peace to those whose lives have been ravaged by war; peace flows to those who are sick and in need of a healing touch; His perfect peace will minister to your soul as you put your faith in the Prince of Peace.

Politicians like to boast about their military power, they have parades celebrating their might and influence, but I want to tell you, 3000 years ago God destroyed the most powerful army in the world when He delivered Israel out of Egypt. There is nothing He cannot do. If He could deliver a nation back then, He can do so again.

I want you to know this real Jesus in your life. Most of us even as believers, experience some powerful storms in our lives - that is why we need to know the reality of the Man who can conquer them! Peace is not the absence of problems, peace comes from knowing God is with you.

I am a realist. I do not tell people that coming to Christ is suddenly an end to all their problems, everything will be transformed, living on cloud nine, twanging a harp! Let's be realistic, life can be a battle! Fighting for those things which are our right to possess, like healing and deliverance. We’re at war with an enemy who is fighting our souls! But be encouraged, you will find God, not in the calm, but in the reality of life. I discovered a long time ago that the most important thing which creates character is not WHAT happens to us so much as OUR REACTION!

Some years ago, I was invited to speak at a conference. The theme was how we can know God, how we can come into His presence. Most of the speakers were saying you need to have holiness, quietness and peace. I caused some revolution because I began preaching from Deuteronomy 4:29: 'If from where you are you shall seek the Lord your God you shall find Him, if you seek Him with all your heart and all your soul.' You will find God if you search for Him from just where you are! When you are in tribulation, when all the problems of life have come on you!
