TOPIC: The Power Of Inner Peace (Mountain Of Fire and Miracle Ministries Tuesday, 11 September 2018)
FIRE SCRIPTURE: John 14:25-27
MEMORY VERSE: “Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me.” – John 14:1
One of the best remedies for a troubled heart is prayer. However, if God is going to answer our prayers and give us peace in our hearts, we must trust Him and cast out fear and doubt from our hearts. One of the best ways to ease a troubled heart is to bathe it in love of God. When you feel like an “orphan”, let the Spirit of God reveal God’s love to you in a deeper way. Charles Spurgeon, the “Prince of Preachers” said, “Little faith will take your soul to heaven, but great faith will bring heaven to your soul”. Your heart can become “heaven on earth” as you commune with the Lord and worship Him.
Shalom (peace) is a precious word to the Jewish people. It means much more than just the absence of war or distress. Shalom means wholeness, completeness, health, and security, even prosperity in the best sense. When you are enjoying God’s peace, there is joy and contentment, but God’s peace is not like the “peace” that the world offers. The world bases its peace on its resources while God’s peace depends on relationship. To be right with God means to enjoy the peace of God. The world depends on personal ability, but the Christian depends on spiritual adequacy in Christ. In the world, peace is something you hope for or work to attain, but to the Christian, peace is God’s precious gift, received by faith. Unsaved people enjoy peace when there is an absence of trouble; Christians enjoy peace in spite of trials because of the presence of the power of the Holy Spirit. People in the world walk by sight and depend on the externals, but Christians walk by faith and depend on the internals. The Spirit of God teaches us the word and guides us (not drags us) into the truth. He also reminds us of what He has taught us so that we can depend on God’s word in the difficult times of life. The Spirit uses the word to give us His peace (John 14:27), His love (John 15:9-10), and His joy (John 15:11). If that does not calm a troubled heart, nothing will.
You have a role to play in getting the peace of God. See your life’s challenges from the eyes and mind of God. See great and shining light at the end of the dark tunnel. See the brighter side of life. Be calm and be still. See the Mighty Man in battle taking over your battles. See the power of God subduing the power of your adversaries. See how big your God is rather than how terrible your problem presents itself. Determine to laugh last over your enemies. Look diligently unto Jesus and you will be victorious, in the mighty name of Jesus.
UNSAVED PEOPLE ENJOY PEACE WHEN THERE IS AN ABSENCE OF TROUBLE; CHRISTIANS ENJOY PEACE IN SPITE OF TRIALS BECAUSE OF THE PRESENCE OF THE HOLY SPIRIT.
I decree that the everlasting peace of God shall win you over from the peace of the world.
1. Peace of God, flow into my life, in the name of Jesus.
2. My soul, enter into the rest and joy of the Lord, in the name of Jesus.
3. Arrows of confusion fired against my spirit man, go back to your senders, in the name of Jesus.
4. You spirit of anxiety, I bind and cast you out of my life, in the name of Jesus.
5. Overflowing joy, enter my life by fire, in the name of Jesus.
6. God will make a way for me where the enemy says there is no way, in the name of Jesus.
7. Jesus Christ the Prince of Peace, manifest Your power in my life, in the name of Jesus.
