straightway Jesus constrained his disciples to get into a ship, and to
go before him unto the other side, while he sent the multitudes away.
14:26 And when the disciples saw him walking on the sea, they were troubled, saying, It is a spirit; and they cried out for fear.
The moment you surrender your life to Jesus, victory comes, because the
same Blood that cleanses from all sins also conquers Satan. However, if
the Blood does not first wash away your sins, you will remain a slave
to the devil (Colossians 1:14).
It is only after the Blood has worked on you through salvation that the
same Blood gives you victory over Satan. For 13 years, I was running
from witches and wizard, and then I met the Lord Jesus Christ. He saved
me, and ever since then, no witch anywhere in the world can come close
to me, because I am covered with the Blood of Jesus.
apart from the Blood of Jesus that is made available to us after
salvation, peace that surpasses human understanding is another benefit
that comes in after the door of salvation is opened. In fact, while
there is no peace to the wicked, peace like a river is made available to
you if you are saved. Jesus, in John 14:27, says to you:
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
One who comes into your heart the moment you are born again is the
Prince of Peace; you therefore must experience peace in all areas of
your life if you have received Him. I pray for you that as you receive
Jesus into your life today or draw closer to Him, you will experience
peace in every area of your life in Jesus’ Name. Have you been troubled?
I speak peace from the Prince of Peace into your troubled situation
that passes all understanding shall locate you today! In addition, the
peace that you receive from the Prince of Peace can be retained for
life. Yes, you can have permanent peace. How? Isaiah 26:3 says,
you have Jesus, you have peace. Anytime you make Jesus your focus, your
peace is sustained, and if Jesus remains your focus, you will have
permanent peace irrespective of the raging storms of life. While Peter
focused on Jesus, he could come out of the troubled boat and walk on
water towards Jesus, but the moment he shifted his focus to the wind, he
began to sink. What has been your focus? Through the peace that Jesus
gives, you can now determine the quality of peace you experience and for
how long it will last. Set your focus on the Prince of Peace today.
for every family that is experiencing storms to encounter the Prince of
Peace and to receive His peace that is beyond understanding.
