No, You Need Peace

“You will keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on You, because he trusts in You” Isaiah 26:3, NKJV.

I’ll never forget a season in my life when every time I went to the altar for prayer the minister would tell me that I needed peace. I would go to them and say, “I need prayer for wisdom because I’m having to make important decisions.” They would look at me and say, “No, you need peace.” Then I would go up to the altar again the next Sunday–this time to a different person–asking for prayer for my marriage and family. Same response, “No, you need peace.” After this happened several times I became frustrated because I thought I already had peace. So I asked my husband, “Do I look peaceful to you?” He smiled and said, “No, you look like you always have a lot on your mind.” I didn’t have peace at all because my mind was on everything else but God.

The Lord began to teach me peace is more than a feeling. You can feel peaceful, but it is a knowing that everything is going to be alright because God is in control. Peace is resting in God’s love because you trust His character and ability. Peace is what you walk in after you cast your cares on the Lord because you know He cares for you. It’s a song on your heart, it’s a pep in your step, it’s an attitude of confidence in the Lord.

My sister, we can choose not to worry about how God is going to do what He promised or when He will come through. We can choose to receive the peace of God right in the middle of the worst storm of our lives. It is because Jesus is our peace. His presence is peace. His words of life bring peace. Fix your mind on His promises instead of the problems. Speak His words from your mouth and declare peace over your life and situations. He loves you, He’s with you and He is in full control.

Prayer: Father God, I thank you for speaking to my heart. You are my faithful God and I love you! Help me to keep my mind stayed on you. Keep me in your perfect peace. I can’t do anything in my own strength, so I put my confidence in your ability and your name. I cast my cares on you Father, you care for me. I put my trust in you and access by faith your peace that is abundantly provided because of Jesus. In Jesus name, Amen.

  1. Yes, I definitely need peace. This devotional is so on time today. My family and I have been harassed for over a month because of cyber bullying/cybercrime that involved identity theft. Even our lives have been threatened and our home was burglarized because the thieves wanted what they had purchased using our credit information. We are praying and trusting God to see us through our circumstances. He is still in control.
