The peace of God is such a powerful weapon against the enemy. It destroys every negative lie the devil tries to tell us so that we can doubt our identity in Christ. God knew this world will be filled with so much pain, hatred and enemies that’s why He sacrificed His son Jesus Christ to be our peace.The peace that Jesus brought from His death and resurrection is a peace that lasts forever. When the peace of God resides in you there is nothing that will stand in your way because negativity cannot stand or live in the same space where God’s peace resides.
I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world. – John 16.33
So, letting your sinful nature control your mind leads to death. But letting the Spirit control your mind leads to life and peace. – Romans 8:6
And let the peace that comes from Christ rule in your hearts. For as members of one body you are called to live in peace. And always be thankful. – Colossians 3:15
- BE STILL AND KNOW HE IS GOD
In every negative situation always train your mind to stay still, don’t over react. The devil will always use negative situations to distract you from your destiny and cause you to be mad, aggravated and you will have a negative mindset to. Don’t allow the devil to play on your mind and emotions. Have faith in God and know that He is the Lord over every situation in your life. Be still, and know that I am God: I will be exalted among the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth. Psalms 46:10.
- KNOW THAT GOD FIGHTS YOUR BATTLES
No matter what negativity you are facing have peace and know that God is fighting on your behalf. Even when you feel like you can’t handle the situation, stay calm and think about God’s greatness and how He got your back. He says in His word that He will never leave you nor forsake you. Stay calm and know that victory belongs to you because God is on your side. The Lord shall fight for you, and ye shall hold your peace Exodus 14:14
- YOU DON’T WAR AGAINST FLESH AND BLOOD
When negative situations show up in your life it’s actually a spiritual battle working against you. Even when you are surrounded by negative people working against you just know they are being used by the enemy to distract you from the will of God. Negativity is a spiritual force of evil that wants to destroy your life. When these situations occur, I want you to know you have the power within you to resist the devil and he will flee. So, do not engage in arguments, fights or confrontations with the negative people or situations. Pray to God to grant you the spirit of peace. Rest in the peace of God and He will be your guide and defender in any situation. For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.Therefore, put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand-Ephesians 6:12-13
- KNOWING THAT GODS PLAN FOR YOUR LIFE IS GREATER THAN THE NEGATIVE SITUATIONS
God’s plan for your life is greater than any negativity. The enemy will try to cause negativity to hinder your purpose because he knows your future is greater than your past. We can’t always control what happens to us, but we can always control how we choose to respond and react in situations. Choose to keep a positive attitude and thankful heart regardless of what you’re going through.“For I know the plans I have for you declares the Lord; plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” Jeremiah 29:11. The devil will try to get you frustrated and confuse your mind and spirit but always remember to stay peaceful and positive all the time. Let the joy of the lord fill your heart even in the most difficult situations. “And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.” Romans 8:28
- PUT ON THE MIND OF CHRIST TO OVERCOME NEGATIVE SITUATIONS
Every negativity or situation in your life, whether big or small, is something God will use to produce more strength, faith and perseverance in you if you let Him! So, put on the mind of Christ. Have faith and think of things that are true, positive and heavenly. Renew you mind daily with the word of God, it will protect you from all negativity and you will be filled with the wisdom of God to overcome anything. And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things. Those things, which ye have both learned, and received, and heard, and seen in me, do: and the God of peace shall be with you-Philippians 4:7-9.
