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. 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 but God.

The Lord began to teach me peace is more than a feeling. You can feel peace, 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 in 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. We can choose to receive the peace of God right in the middle of the storm because Jesus is our peace. His presence is peace. His words of life bring peace. Let’s fix our minds on His promises instead of the problems. Let’s speak His words from our mouths and declare peace over our lives and situations. He loves us, He’s with us 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.

We can choose to receive the peace of God right in the middle of the storm because Jesus is our peace.” Thank you may you be blessed as you pray for me ❤️

  6. I pray for us all, for I am embroiled in the struggle as well. He wants to help us. He wants to show us His love. We have access to His love and grace. We have to make a decision to follow and trust Him wholeheartedly again. He will not leave nor foresake us. Trust Him at His Word. Let Him put a SMILE on your face. That will be the upside-down rainbow after the present storm in your life. HE has done it before. HE will do it again! He will make a way. HE already has! Walk into your blessing with faith in Him!
