Peace Be Unto You
“Peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.”
– John 14:27

As children of God, we must never lose focus of our status.
At the center of Satanʼs operations are two strategies; lies and fear. With these two, he has deceived and seduced many away from God.
It is indeed challenging to remain at peace when one reads the daily report of senseless killings, destruction, terrorism, moral decadence, political failures, earthquakes, and societal degradation.
But this again is satan’s intent…that we would think that God is losing the battle over the earth! If we do not align ourselves with truth, our hearts as well may fail.
This was Christʼs mission, to deliver men from a haunting fear…of death! (Heb 2:15). Paul overcame this fear by staying focused on His relationship with Christ!
It is said that the object of your focus becomes more prominent and takes up all the attention. If we stay focused on the news headlines, we live anxious, afraid, and despondent.
However, if you stay focused on your relationship with God, prayer, purpose-driven life, and intimacy with the Holy Spirit, you will be at peace.
You will not have any attention left for anxiety, worry, sickness, or even frustration.
In this age of information, you must let your heart and mind stay guided and guarded by the truth of God’s word. Let His word be your focus, anchor, strength, hope, and confession.
Whether the storm rages or the sun is bright and shining, let the peace from God be your real anchor.
You are more than just a number, you are God’s own. Peace be unto you!
LET US PRAY:
In Jesus’ Name, I declare
I have the peace that the world lacks. My heart is at peace. Every anxiety is replaced with the Peace of God.
I will not be troubled, I will not be afraid.
My heart trusts in the Lord Jesus. He is my Eternal Rock of Defence, I have no fear of evil report.
I declare the peace of God guards my heart and mind in Christ. I have life and power because Jesus died and rose again.
I value Christ more than all the wisdom of the world. I am called by Christ into a higher realm of living. I identify and value Christ above all.
