Have you ever been in a situation where you are looking for answers, you are wanting God to say something but it seems He is not responding to you in the way that you are used to?. When you are trying to make a big decision that has the capacity to alter your life forever.
I have now learnt that peace is a language of God. In situations where you can't seem to hear the voice of God ask yourself how much at peace you are with making that next move?.
Peace or lack of it is a language of God.
“For God is not a God of disorder but of peace, as in all the meetings of God’s holy people.” 1 Corinthians 14:33 NLT
“Now may the Lord of peace Himself grant you His peace at all times and in every way [that peace and spiritual well-being that comes to those who walk with Him, regardless of life’s circumstances]. The Lord be with you all.” 2 THESSALONIANS 3:16 AMP
“May the God of peace be with you all! Amen." ROMANS 15:33 AMP
Considering that God is a God of peace, our lack of peace in times of decision making or at any stage of our lives may indicate disagreement with God and his will for us.
In other instances it may show our lack of trust in God, in the form of worry and anxiety.
It's important for us to know that God wants us to have peace whatever the circumstances. It is never in God's will for us to be frustrated.
Here are some instances l have found myself lacking peace
- When God is communicating my need to do what he instructed.
- When I'm about to make a bad decision.
- When trying to fix issues that only God can fix, hence I'm troubled.
- When my trust and focus is not on God.
“Do not be anxious or worried about anything, but in everything [every circumstance and situation] by prayer and petition with thanksgiving, continue to make your [specific] requests known to God.And the peace of God [that peace which reassures the heart, that peace] which transcends all understanding, [that peace which] stands guard over your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus [is yours].” PHILIPPIANS 4:6-7 AMP
““For the mountains may be removed and the hills may shake, But My lovingkindness will not be removed from you, Nor will My covenant of peace be shaken,” Says the LORD who has compassion on you.” ISAIAH 54:10 AMP
This just hit home with me, 🙌🏻God has a covenant of peace with us which can never be shaken!
“I have told you these things, so that in Me you may have [perfect] peace. In the world you have tribulation and distress and suffering, but be courageous [be confident, be undaunted, be filled with joy]; I have overcome the world.” [My conquest is accomplished, My victory abiding.]”JOHN 16:33 AMP
☝🏽😢 Troubled hearts have no peace!.The amount of time l have wasted not claiming peace, allowing myself to be troubled. I'm angry at the devil for stealing my peace for all these years. I'm going to claim peace, pursue it and fight the devil with his schemes that steal my peace.
“You will keep in perfect peace all who trust in you, all whose thoughts are fixed on you! Trust in the Lord always, for the Lord GOD is the eternal Rock.” Isaiah 26:3-4 NLT
How perfect is this it's a promise to us that when we fix our thoughts on God and Trust Him, He will give us peace.
Lastly l believe that knowing that we have peace with God, through Jesus Christ is important. God loves us and wants us to have peace, he is not happy when we are troubled.
“Therefore, since we have been justified [that is, acquitted of sin, declared blameless before God] by faith, [let us grasp the fact that] we have peace with God [and the joy of reconciliation with Him] through our Lord Jesus Christ (the Messiah, the Anointed).” ROMANS 5:1 AMP
I hope this encourages you to seek peace, For God is a God of peace. And whenever you lack peace pursue it. It's yours and mine.
