PEACE IN THE STORM
My peace is not as the world gives. The world’s peace caters to the flesh. My peace helps you to ride out the storm. For no storm ever conquered Me! Although the Pharisees and Sadducees thought they had won, they did not understand the power of the Cross. For love conquers all! My love has conquered you, so let it be so with My peace. For as you have received My love, also receive My peace. For surely, it is the key to going through every storm you face. When the waves seem to overtake you, turn to Me and look into My eyes.
Keep your gaze fixed on Me, just as a woman uses a focal point during labor. Though the pain seeks to overwhelm you, it is where your focus remains that determines the outcome. The emotional pain you feel will only be displaced by peace when you keep your focus on Me. Remember to breathe! I will help you! You can do this! For the pain will only seem like a moment compared to the joy of yielding and obedience!
John 14:27 The Passion Translation (TPT)
I leave the gift of peace with you—my peace. Not the kind of fragile peace given by the world, but my perfect peace. Don’t yield to fear or be troubled in your hearts—instead, be courageous!
Psalm 23:4 The Passion Translation (TPT)
Lord, even when your path takes me through the valley of deepest darkness, fear will never conquer me, for you already have! You remain close to me and lead me through it all the way. Your authority is my strength and my peace. The comfort of your love takes away my fear. I’ll never be lonely, for you are near.
Matthew 10:34-36 The Passion Translation (TPT)
34 “Perhaps you think I’ve come to spread peace and calm over the earth—
but my coming will bring conflict and division, not peace. 35 Because of me,
A son will turn against his father, a daughter her mother and against her mother-in-law.
36 Within your own families you will find enemies.
Proverbs 1:33 The Passion Translation (TPT)
But the one who always listens to me will live undisturbed in a heavenly peace. Free from fear, confident and courageous, you will rest unafraid and sheltered from the storms of life.
Isaiah 26:3 The Passion Translation (TPT)
Perfect, absolute peace surrounds those whose imaginations are consumed with you; they confidently trust in you.
John 16:33 The Passion Translation (TPT)
And everything I’ve taught you is so that the peace which is in me will be in you and will give you great confidence as you rest in me. For in this unbelieving world you will experience trouble and sorrows, but you must be courageous, for I have conquered the world!”
