Peace, Be Still

Posted on Posted in devotions

“And he arose, and rebuked the wind, and said unto the sea, Peace, be still. And the wind ceased, and there was a great calm.” Mark 4:39

What Jesus does here caused His disciples to be utterly amazed. In one moment, it looked like they were about to die in a great storm, and in the next moment Jesus has awakened from His sleep, rebuked the storm, commanded peace and there was a great calm. You may be thinking, “I wish Jesus was here with me to speak to my storm. I sure could use a great calm in my life!” However, did you know that Jesus isn’t the only one that can do that? Whenever you need peace in your life, in your body, in your finances and in your home, you can have it. In God’s Kingdom there is righteousness, peace, and joy in the Holy Ghost (see Romans 14:17). Because you are God’s daughter, you have been given power to declare peace to be still in every area of your life. You are made in the image and likeness of God. You have the power to arise and speak to the storm. Command peace to be still in the name of Jesus, and experience a great calm all around.

Prayer: Father, thank You for showing me how to experience peace in my life. You have given me the power to speak to my storm and I choose to operate in that power now. I arise as Your daughter and I rebuke the storm in every area of my life. I command peace to be still in my mind, in my home, in my relationships, in my finances, in my body, on my job, and in every area of my life. I receive Your peace and a great calm now. I declare I have righteousness, peace and joy in the Holy Ghost. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
