Getting To Know God
His Name Is...
The LORD Our Peace - The Prince Of Peace - The Just Judge - The Praise Of God - The Perfection Of God
Then the Spirit came upon Amasai, chief of the captains, [and he said]: "[We are] yours, O David; we [are] on your side, O son of Jesse! Peace, peace to you, and peace to your helpers! For your God helps you." So David received them, and made them captains of the troop.
1 Chronicles 12:18
The scriptures teach throughout that, unless God provides circumstances in which fear, corruption, and death are removed, there is no peace. Why does God share the effects of His own perfection? He desires the praises of His people. God wants His people to acknowledge His perfection and exalt His name. Notice that the Holy Spirit filled Amasai in order to provoke words of praise in response to God’s peace. Amasai recognized that God was David’s “Helper,” causing peace through David’s kingship. Praise God for sharing the glory of His impeccability as our “Helper” to remove fear, corruption, and death on our behalf, enabling peace.
