Come, behold the works of the Lord,

Who has inflicted horrific events on the earth.

He makes wars to cease to the end of the earth;

He breaks the bow and cuts the spear in two;

He burns the chariots with fire.

“Stop striving and know that I am God;

I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted on the earth.”

The Lord of armies is with us;

The God of Jacob is our stronghold. Selah

Psalm 46:8-11

All of the calamitous works of man will someday end; their end will be brought on by God, who desires an end to strife. In the day that the Lord is exalted, peace will win over war.

Though God uses tragedy to toughen us or pain to change hearts and minds, he will break the weapons of war and end all of that one day. By destroying war, he will create peace. Hail the victorious Prince of Peace.
