Knowing The God Of Peace

We know by just listening to the newscasts or reading the news that there are terrible things going on in our world. To hear about everything could certainly put you into fear—wondering if something like what you hear would happen in your area.

I have some good news for you. King David wrote in Psalm 91something that’s just as pertinent today as when he wrote it. I encourage your to read and re-read Psalm 91—even commit it to memory so you have the Word to draw on when things get crazy. Verses 5 and 6 (ESV) are a strong foundation and encouragement for us.

“You will not be afraid of the terror by night, nor of the arrow that flies by day, nor of the pestilence that stalks in darkness, nor of the destruction that lays waste at noonday.” It doesn’t say you will be afraid! It says you will NOT BE AFRAID…of any terror at night, anything destructive during the day, during the dark hours, or even at noon. That about covers 24 hours a day, right? That’s perfect protection and deliverance.

Yes, we live in a world that is entrenched in negative news and fear, but we don’t have to fall into the trap of being fearful. Why? Because our God is with us, and He is a deliverer! Even in the midst of what is happening in our world, you can be fearless. How? It comes from knowing the Lord as the God of Peace.

This is how Paul puts it in Romans 15:33 (ESV): “Now the God of peace be with you all.” Yes, God is with us at all times. We’re His beloved child, and His presence goes with us. Paul went beyond this with a deeper truth because he wanted believers to see Jesus/God manifested in their lives each day as the God of Peace.

When you walk in the reality of God’s Peace manifested in your heart and life, you’ll walk in faith and victory. There will be no need to walk in fear or worry, OR anxiety. Here’s how His Peace will affect you according to Romans 16:20 (ESV): “And the God of Peace will crush Satan under your feet. The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ be with you. Amen.”

Did you catch that? When we walk in our benefit of God’s Peace IN us, we will rise over the enemy’s attacks or obstacles. We’ll climb easily past fear, worry, and anxiety because we are allowing God’s Peace through Jesus to fill us with His Peace! Fear can’t stay when Peace is present. The God of Peace will strangle fear, annihilate it. Because Jesus paid the price, and since you are in Him you have a right to walk in divine protection, peace, health, and joy, while His Grace protects you.

It’s time to let the Lord be your Peace—right now, today. He is your God of Peace!
