Master. The Tempest Is Raging.

Psalms_46-10: 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: Be still, and know that I am God: I will be exalted among the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth

Master. The Tempest Is Raging.
The Billows Are Tossing High!
The Sky Is Overshadowed With Blackness,
No Shelter Or Help Is Nigh;
“Carest Thou Not That We Perish?”
How Canst Thou Lie Asleep,
When Each Moment So Madly Is Threatening
A Grave In The Angry Deep?

The Winds And The Waves Shall Obey My Will,
Peace, Be Still !“
Whether The Wrath Of The
Stormed-Tossed Sea,
Or Demons, Or Men, Or Whatever It Be,
No Waters Van Swallow The Ship Where Lies
The Master Of Ocean, And Earth, And Skies,
They All Shall Sweetly Obey My Will;
Peace Be Still! Peace Be Still!
They All Shall Sweetly Obey My Will:
Peace, Peace Be Still!

Master, With Anguish Of Spirit
I Bow In My Grief Today;
The Depths Of My Sad Heart
Are Troubled;
Oh, Waken And Save, I Pray!
Torrents Of Sin And Of Anguish
Sweep Over My Sinking Soul!
And I Perish! I Perish! Dear
Master;
Oh Hasten, And Take Control!

Master, The Terror Is Over,
The Elements Sweetly Rest;
Earth’s Sun In The Calm Lake Is Mirrored,
And Heaven’s Within My Breast.
Linger, O Blessed Redeemer,
Leave Me Alone No More;
And With Joy I Shall Make The Blest Harbour,
And Rest On The Blissful Shore.
Amen!

John_14-27: 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

In The Midst Of Battle

In The Midst Of Battle

Isaiah_9-6: For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counseller, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.

Isaiah_9-6: For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counseller, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.

“In righteousness shalt thou be established: thou shalt be far from oppression; for thou shalt not fear: and from terror; for it shall not come near thee.”
Isaiah 54:14 (KJV)

If there was ever a time we needed to get established in righteousness, it is now, when satanic activities are steadily increasing. Your heart must be guarded with all diligence. Your heart must be guarded based on the revelation that you have right standing with God and that God is for you and with you every time, no matter what. You must be fully persuaded, irrespective of the situation that you find yourself in, that He is not mad at you.

Let me show you how someone established in righteousness functions in the midst of battle. In Mark 4:35-41, you will notice that Jesus was in a boat with His disciples. They were going to the other side of a lake when suddenly they encountered a great storm of wind; the waves beat into the ship and began to fill it. Jesus was asleep in the hinder part of the ship. Not even the storm could wake Him, because His heart was established in righteousness. Such a person rests with the knowledge that everything will be alright.

In contrast, notice how fearful the disciples were. They believed that they were going to perish. When people expect the worst as children of God it is evidence of their not being established in righteousness. The disciples panicked. They bailed out water from the boat and tried every emergency exercise they knew before it occurred to them to go wake Jesus up. If you look at what they said to Him, you will clearly understand their state of mind. They did not wake Him up and tell Him there was a storm. They did not wake Him up and tell Him they were sinking. No, worse than that, they woke Him up and charged at Him: careth not that we perish? In other words, we are perishing and you are sleeping; don’t you care about us? It did not occur to them that Jesus too was in the boat and that whatever happened to them would also happen to Him. They were totally consumed by their fear. I imagine that Jesus woke up with a smile, looked at their confused faces, and without arguing rebuked the storm. He showed His supremacy not because He was Jesus, but because He understood what it meant to be a child of God.

I challenge you today to expect nothing other than good every moment of your life. You are the righteousness of God in Christ.

Mark 4:35-41

Romans 10:1-13

Isaiah 37-38

Colossians 3

Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee.

Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee.

Read: Exodus 14:13-14

13 And Moses said unto the people, Fear ye not, stand still, and see the salvation of the LORD, which he will shew to you to day: for the Egyptians whom ye have seen to day, ye shall see them again no more for ever.
14 The LORD shall fight for you, and ye shall hold your peace.

Exodus_33-14-2: And he said, My presence shall go with thee, and I will give thee rest.

Exodus_33-14-2: And he said, My presence shall go with thee, and I will give thee rest.

Message

The assurance that God is on the side of the righteous and not against them, gives peace to their life. It is commonly said that “One with God is majority.” Even if the whole world is against you, as long as you know that God is on your side, you will not be afraid. As a child of God, because God has justified and cleansed you, there is now peace between you and Him (Romans 5:1). The rift of separation is gone! Condemnation is also gone! Praise God! As long as God stands by you, nobody can withstand you (Romans 8:31). If God is for you, it means that He loves you, and if He loves you, then you are more than a conqueror. If God is for you, He will personally take over the battles of your life. As you simply praise and worship Him, He will arise and engage your enemies in battle. You can be certain He will bring the victory back to you. While facing the Red Sea with no visible way to cross it, the children of Israel suddenly had the Egyptian army rushing furiously towards them. Faced with this impossible situation, Moses said this to them in Exodus 14:14:
“The LORD shall fight for you, and ye shall hold your peace.”

Jeremiah_29-11: For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the LORD, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end

Jeremiah_29-11: For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the LORD, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end

When you have the Commander-in-Chief of the heavenly hosts fighting for you, oh what peace and joy will flood your heart in the midst of the storms of life! As long as Jesus, the Prince of Peace, is in your boat, that boat will never sink. A song writer wrote, “… No water can swallow the ship where lies, the Master of ocean and earth and skies”. This is so true. You can go to sleep in the midst of an earthquake when God is with you. That was why Peter could sleep so deep after his arrest. Acts 12:6-7 tells of how he slept, bound between two soldiers:
“And when Herod would have brought him forth, the same night Peter was sleeping between two soldiers, bound with two chains: and the keepers before the door kept the prison.”
He knew that even though he was in prison, He was safely in God’s hands. He also knew that God can do the impossible whenever He decides to. Are you anxious over how you will come out of that impossible situation? Fear not! What did Peter do to come out? Nothing! He slept while others prayed, yet he came out. You are coming out today in Jesus’ Name. Because God is with you, you will never fall.

Key Point

The peace that God gives cannot be eroded by the storms of life.

Philippians_4-7: And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus

Isaiah 57:19

I create the fruit of the lips; Peace, peace to him that is far off, and to him that is near, saith the LORD; and I will heal him.

Read: Isaiah 57:19-21

19 I create the fruit of the lips; Peace, peace to him that is far off, and to him that is near, saith the LORD; and I will heal him.
20 But the wicked are like the troubled sea, when it cannot rest, whose waters cast up mire and dirt.
21 There is no peace, saith my God, to the wicked.

Message

Long life and mercy are two benefits derivable from living a life of holiness. In addition to these, peace is another dividend of a holy life. A fellow living a sanctified life enjoys God’s peace at an optimum level. If you are saved and still lack peace, ask God to sanctify you wholly. The moment He does this, you will begin to enjoy peace that is way beyond human understanding. After interpreting King Nebuchadnezzar’s dream, Daniel gave him this piece of advice:

Daniel 4:27

“Wherefore, O king, let my counsel be acceptable unto thee, and break off thy sins by righteousness, and thine iniquities by shewing mercy to the poor; if it may be a lengthening of thy tranquillity.”

Jeremiah_29-11: For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the LORD, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end

Jeremiah_29-11: For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the LORD, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end

While great peace is available for the upright, there is no peace for the wicked (Isaiah 57:21). There is a user of this devotional, you lost your peace sometime ago and you have tried everything possible to get it back without success. Your peace disappeared after you were mean to a particular child of God, and you made life unbearable for this fellow. If you ask God for forgiveness and make restitution to this fellow, your peace shall be restored.

Proverbs_16-7: When a man's ways please the LORD, he maketh even his enemies to be at peace with him

Proverbs_16-7: When a man’s ways please the LORD, he maketh even his enemies to be at peace with him

Moreover, a call to holiness is a call to peace. Our God is the Author of peace (1 Corinthians 14:33), and Jesus is declared to be the Prince of Peace (Isaiah 9:6). A father can only give whatever he has to his son. If you have God, you will definitely have peace. That peace will grow as you live holy. It is possible to be wealthy and not have peace. It is also possible to be healthy and lack peace. Peace cannot be bought with money. One of the attributes of God’s kingdom is peace (Romans 14:17). If you therefore want peace, you must first seek God’s kingdom and His righteousness. In Psalm 29:11, God promises to bless His own with peace. This really means that after God has blessed His children, He will add peace to it. If you are blessed and no peace is added, those blessings can transform into a curse at some point. Some people are “blessed” and yet, sorrow, pain, regret and trouble are added. Such blessings are already cursed! Do you have the peace of God?

Philippians_4-7: And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus

Philippians_4-7: And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus

Key Point

Sin always brings trouble. If you want peace but you are still living in sin, you are responsible for your own troubles.
