Seeds of Destiny 23 September 2020 Devotional Message
The peace of God is an indispensable necessity in life and destiny. The peace of God is the answer to the storms of life. Peace is needed to confront and conquer sudden storms that may arise in your journey of life.
We can see an example from the Scripture: One day, Jesus Christ was in a boat with his disciples in a sea and a storm arose.
Mark 4:35-39 says, And the same day, when the even was come, he saith unto them, Let us pass over unto the other side. And when they had sent away the multitude, they took him even as he was in the ship. And there were also with him other little ships. And there arose a great storm of wind, and the waves beat into the ship, so that it was now full. And he was in the hinder part of the ship, asleep on a pillow: and they awake him, and say unto him, Master, carest thou not that we perish? 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.
At times, sudden storms may arise while you are embarking on an important journey in life. That is why the peace of God is needed.
Now, when the storm arose, Jesus seemed to say, “I confront you storm, with peace. You storm, Peace! Be still!” And the wind ceased and there was a great calm. Halleluiah!
You know, most times, the storms of life arise without notice, and they come to put pressure on your content. Sometime ago, we were flying to France, and as we were trying to land, the aircraft came close to the ground but took off suddenly and violently into the air. People began to panic, and at that moment, I was reminded of a prophetic declaration: “If it would crash, you won’t be inside, and if you are inside, it won’t crash”. So, I remained seated peacefully. Shortly after that, the pilot apologised for the failure of the automatic landing system; meaning, what should have landed the aircraft failed. But shortly after that, it became normal, and the plane landed successfully.
You see, when the emergencies of life occur, what you need is the peace of God.
Beloved, determine to go for the peace of God so you can confront and conquer sudden storms that may arise in your journey of life.
Remember This: Peace is needed to confront and conquer sudden storms that may arise in your journey of life.
