Have you realized that almost every attack of the enemy is designed to steal our peace first? Satan knows if he can rob us of our peace, we will quickly lose our faith, patience, love, and so on.
Let’s look at some scriptures.
In John 14:27, Jesus said, “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”.
In John 16:33, He said, “These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you may have peace. In the world you have tribulation, but take courage; I have overcome the world”.
Romans 16:20 says, “God of peace will soon crush Satan under your feet”. Under whose feet? Our feet.
Jesus is the Prince of Peace. Satan knows if we are more conscious of the resurrected Jesus and God’s promises, over the facts and circumstances, we’ll walk in supernatural peace of God. And that crushes his lies and discouragements. It’s a fatal blow to his wicked schemes.
Philippians 4:6-8 says be anxious for nothing.
Did you hear that? Don’t worry about anything.
But in everything, by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God which surpasses all understanding will guard your hearts, and minds, through Christ Jesus”.
Let the peace of God rule your heart, not anxiety and fear. To be spiritually minded is life and peace. Don’t be led by your feelings. Be led by the Spirit and the Word of God.
Jesus said that people’s hearts will fail them from fear and the expectation of those things which are coming on the earth.
But we belong to a supernatural Kingdom of righteousness, peace, and joy in the Holy Spirit. That Kingdom is within us. When we walk in the peace of God, it’s a powerful demonstration of God’s Kingdom to a world in turmoil.
Don’t let anything steal your peace.
