God’s peace, in His presence, completely protects our hearts and minds. Unlike a peace that the world gives us, His is perfect. How to accomplish and enjoy God’s presence?
These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world. (John 16:33, KJV)
Remember that God is always close, so rejoice in His permanent presence. Have a cup of coffee or tea with God, giving your requests with thanksgiving. It is a way to receive His peace with understanding. Also, it is how He is guarding your mind and heart. Because of His presence, no one must be alone or sense lonely.
In Exodus 14:14 KJV, we read: “The Lord shall fight for you, and ye shall hold your peace.” Yours is only to remain calm and quiet while Lord fights for you. We won our victory on our knees in prayer. You will have trouble in the world, but don’t be afraid, He has conquered the world. What a great message from our God! As long as we stand in His presence, we will receive His peace.
To summarize: Don’t let your busy schedule in the way of quality spending time with Lord. You deserve to take your daily portion of His presence. The enemy will try to distract you with a beep, buzz, ring; Turn off all the noises from the outside. Enjoy His presence in prayer today, and the next day and so on! Enjoy in Him!
Homework: Read Exodus 14 and John 14 & 16.
Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid. (John 14:27, KJV )
