World peace will happen, but not the way we think

He will judge between the nations
    and will settle disputes for many peoples.
They will beat their swords into plowshares
    and their spears into pruning hooks.
Nation will not take up sword against nation,
    nor will they train for war anymore.

Isaiah 2:4 (NIV)

This morning while reading my Bible, I was struck (for probably the millionth time) by the hope that God’s Word contains. In the case of world peace I’m sure we’ll agree that humanity has failed—miserably.

But what we seek to attain by human measures God promises will happen, not by our political scheming or military prowess, but by His own power.

Jesus will bring world peace at His return and those who are secure in Him will never suffer again.

Now that’s something to smile about!
