In Scotland a large field at the top of a village road overlooked the bay. In the middle of the field, there was a concrete tower.

From this site, apart from the beautiful view and spectacular sunsets over the sea, there was nothing to watch. The watchtower, built during World War II, was used to spot any enemy aircraft, submarines, or warships coming up the bay to destroy the naval bases and shipyards in Glasgow. The after the war, the building was abandoned, but never removed.

The fortress will be abandoned, the noisy city deserted; citadel and watchtower will become a wasteland for ever, the delight of donkeys, and a pasture for flocks. (Isaiah 32:14)

When Isaiah writes about the abandoned watchtowers in the city of Jerusalem, he is prophesying about a time when peace will reign and such things will not be needed. As Christians, we seek that same peace in our lives and can fully experience it when we are aware of His constant Presence. We may battle through life and struggle with sin, but His peace is available to us know. There is also a glorious day, when the war will be over, and we shall eternally dwell in that peace of God which passes all understanding in Heaven.

Realize that the Lord is our Peace Bringer. All over the world, there are many places that do not know peace because the people do not know Him. Displaying His peace in our lives will enable others to seek and find the same.
