You may be facing trials and tribulations of many kinds. As believers, we are not immune from the attacks of the devil, but through prayer and continuously declaring the Word of God, we can push back, evade, or come out of the trial victorious.
Situations may have you feeling like there’s no peace in your life,or feeling hopeless and thinking that the chaos will never subside. God wants you to know that in the midst of your chaos, He is with you. He is going to calm your craziest storms. He is going to give you strength and lead you to His peace.
We see it in the Word, how Jesus calmed storms and entire situations changed. Read the following passage:
23 Then he got into the boat and his disciples followed him. 24 Suddenly a furious storm came up on the lake, so that the waves swept over the boat. But Jesus was sleeping. 25 The disciples went and woke him, saying, “Lord, save us! We’re going to drown!”
26 He replied, “You of little faith, why are you so afraid?” Then he got up and rebuked the winds and the waves, and it was completely calm.
27 The men were amazed and asked, “What kind of man is this? Even the winds and the waves obey him!”
Jesus and His disciples faced calamity upon the Sea of Galilee, yet Jesus was asleep on the boat. His disciples had to wake Him up so that He could help them. Look closely as Jesus’ peace. His peace is unlike any other peace. It will help you to stay calm and confident in God Almighty no matter what storm you face – whether it be physical, spiritual, emotional, psychological. God is with you! He is your peace. He gets you through every storm you face in this life.
PRAYER FOR DIVINE PEACE IN THE MIDST OF STORMS:
Dear Lord Jesus,
I humbly come before you right now. I surrender my doubt and fears and take up with shield of faith. Faith in your promises. Faith in your Word. Faith in who you say you are. You are Alpha and Omega, my strength and shield, my defender, my protector, my vindicator.
I praise you, Jesus, and I ask that you would continue to be my peace in times of trouble. Calm the storms around me and surround me with your peace. Your peace surpasses all understanding! I receive it right now in Jesus’ Mighty Name. Amen!
