This world as we know it with so much going on it’s easy to be distracted, it’s easy to feel like things are not going as planned or many things are happening around you that rattle your heart and take away your peace.
It’s very important to have the peace of God that surpasses all understanding and this comes by having a daily relationship with God. The world’s peace comes from material things or when things are going well then they have peace but when things take the wrong turn their peace quickly dissipates. In the Bible Jesus makes a distinct statement about peace… He says “Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives” (John 14:27). God is here to give you peace in 2018 that no man or material things will give you. Whatever had tried to steal your peace will be no more in Jesus name.
If you like me I believe that you have encountered moments in your life where you were experiencing so much joy, when things were going according to plan and you’re excited but then then you get caught up in a situation where by your environment was not excited for you or you were surrounded by people you never knew were against you until you started to experiencing joy peace and love.
As those good things started to manifest in your life the people around tried to come against your life because you were experiencing so much Joy and there were jealous and couldn’t not stand your joy and they did anything they could to try to steal your joy and peace away .
If this is you then this message is yours. Never give anyone power to control how you feel, your emotions or in this case never give anybody power to control your joy and your peace that they did not give you in the first place. But always trust God for your peace and joy.The Bible says in Proverbs 3:5-6-Trust in the LORD with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths.
Whenever things happen in your life that are beyond your control and takeaway your peace before you start sharing your problems with everyone please walk in wisdom and know not everyone is for you and take your concern and problems to God in prayer and He will give you perfect peace that goes beyond all your understanding. The Bible says in Philippians 4:7 and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.
If you have been anxious, worried and have no peace today God wants to give peace beyond understanding. God wants to guard your heart and protect you from anything toxic that would try to take your peace away.
I know many times life can be overwhelming and full of the unexpected but take courage no matter what your going through and Know you are not alone in this . God is with you, He said, He will never leave you nor forsake you. So be still and know that His God. Rest in the Power of His presence and He will give you perfect peace.
In 2018 no weapon formed against you shall prosper because God is going to protect you from your enemies and bless you beyond your wildest dreams. Peace be still over everything that has tried to destroy you. You are alive today because God has brought you this far to bless you and not to forsake you. You are more than a conqueror and the peace of God is upon you. This year is yours to experience the greatness and goodness of God’s blessings over your life.
Happy New year!!!🎆🎊
