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 (KJV)

What Jesus does here caused His disciples to be utterly amazed.  In one moment it looked like they were about to go under 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, you can have it.  In God’s Kingdom there is righteousness, peace, and joy in the Holy Ghost (Romans 14:17).  If you are a daughter of the King, you have the power to declare peace to be still.  When there’s no peace, either you aren’t in His Kingdom or you are not walking in the authority He has given you through Jesus.  God didn’t save you so that you can live your life rocked and tossed, depressed and worried, with blood pressure rising from the storms that come your way.  You are made in the image and likeness of God. You have the power.  Arise, daughter.  Rebuke the storm in your life.  Command peace to be still, and experience a great calm like you’ve never experienced before.

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 this storm in 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.
