Seeds Of Destiny (SOD) 28 September, 2020 – More Keys To Experiencing The Peace Of God
Spending quality time in the presence of God is doorway to peace. People who carry the presence of God walk in unspeakable peace; when you come around them, you feel the serenity of Heaven.
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY:
Yesterday, we saw three demands or keys to experiencing the peace of God.
Today, we shall consider more keys to experiencing the peace of God.
1. Intimacy with God
Everyone who hangs around fire must feel warm. For instance, if you stay around the kitchen for a while, people would begin to perceive the aroma of food around you. In the same way, when you stay around the Presence of the God of peace, you will experience His peace. The Presence of God is a container of peace. It is a dimension of peace that is devoid of worry and pressure!
Spending quality time in the presence of God is doorway to peace. People who carry the presence of God walk in unspeakable peace; when you come around them, you feel the serenity of Heaven. When you connect yourself with God in intimacy, you will be at peace in life (Job 22:21). When you come to Jesus, you will find peace (Matthew 11:28-29). He is the Prince of Peace (Isaiah 9:6).
Many times, when people come to see me in my office, they say, “I feel unusual peace; everywhere is peaceful. There is nothing that suggests any problem.” That is the raw unadulterated Presence of God. It gives serenity; it gives a kind of tranquillity that makes you forget that there is any challenge in this world.
2. Hearkening to God’s Word and Commandment
Lovers of the Book of God are carriers of the peace of God (Psalm 119:165). Distance from the Bible is distance from peace. People who love the Word of God have great peace – whether it is by reading the Bible or by listening to the preached Word. You will have peace if you listen to God’s Word (Proverbs 3:1-2). So, make up your mind to study God’s Word.
3. Access to the Voice of God
This is hearing God for a specific direction. Following the direction of God for your life brings peace (Psalms 23:1-2).
If God is leading you, peace is not negotiable. The leading of God makes peace automatic. To follow the way of the Lord is to collide with peace (Psalm 85:8, Isaiah 48:18). If you listen to Jesus, you will have peace in the world of tribulation (John 16:33).
Please know this: God is not in anything you do that deprives you of peace. It does not matter how excited you are or how fanciful it appears, if you lack peace, God is not in it. Peace is a proof of Divine guidance. (Colossians 3:15).
My counsel is, let the peace of God rule your life as an umpire. Let the peace of Christ be your guide in life.
Remember this: Spending quality time in the Presence of God is doorway to peace.
1. Make up your mind to spend quality time with God at the place of prayer.
2. Read your Bible, listen to preached messages and obey God’s Word.
3. Access specific Divine direction for your daily living.
