Word for Today:
Peace, Be Still.
Ministry Of the Word (MOW): True Spirituality (TS).
“And he arose, and rebuked the wind, and said unto the sea, Peace, be still. And the wind ceased, and there was a great calm” ( Mark 4:39).
Blessed new day of the Lord to the great family of God all over the world ( Psalm 118:24).
Henceforth, I speak peace into every stormy situations in your life. When there was a great storm such that the ship was about to sink, the disciples of Jesus were so terrified. Meanwhile, Jesus was asleep at the hind part of the ship. In their fears, the disciples woke up Jesus, asking him: Don’t you care that we perish? Jesus woke up and spoke: “Peace, be still. And the wind ceased, and there was a great calm”. Sometimes, you may have the feelings that Jesus is ‘asleep’ in your situation . No, he is watching. Be strong in the Lord always. He is about to perform a miracle for you. You would recall the disciples said to one another: “What manner of man is this, that even the wind and the sea obey him? (Mark 4:41).
If you are truly born again, then Jesus is always in the boat of your heart, to speak peace to all your stormy circumstances. Take your focus away from the storms, rather focus on the Prince of Peace ( Isaiah 9:6). If you are in Christ, you have no reason to go through life with fear. God has not given us the spirit of fear.
Life is full of battles. All great people of the world, including Jesus faced great battles in life. In fighting the battles of life, please ensure you put on the full armour of God:
“Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil” (Ephesians 6:11). These are listed as faith, truth, peace, righteousness, and the sword of the Spirit (the word of God); holding unto your salvation with prayers always.
The storms you go through in life are meant to transform you. This is why Saint James assured us:
“My brethren, count it all joy when ye fall into divers temptations; Knowing this, that the trying of your faith worketh patience” ( James 1:2-3).
Stay connected to JESUS, the Word and the Truth . Be knowledgeable and wise. Be enlightened.
Become a DISCIPLE, AMBASSADOR and a MISSIONARY for Jesus Christ wherever you are.
Seek humility and wisdom.
Keep your thoughts and mind positive.
Do no think evil against anyone.
Be sensitive to the Holy Spirit.
Dear Father, please grant us the spirit of wisdom and give us the grace to face the storms of life with confidence in Jesus mighty name. Amen.
Thank you Jesus. Blood of Jesus.
Thank you Jesus for living in our hearts and speaking PEACE into all our stormy situations in Jesus name. Amen.
Yours in the Vineyard of Christ.
