God's Perfect Peace~

No God, no peace. Know God, know peace. ~Author Unknown

Do you know what God's Word has to say about peace? Are you aware of all the promises of peace that are found in the Bible?

Our peace is often the focus of the enemy. Satan knows without peace, we are in a weakened condition, vulnerable to defeat. If he can get us to hand over our peace, he knows it won't be long before we become putty in his hand.

So, how do we fight the enemy?

How do we hold on to our peace?

How do we use our peace as spiritual warfare and do some battling of our own?

By knowing God's Word and then speaking it into our life, our heart and our situations.

God's Word is true and it can be trusted. But, have you ever thought of the power that we have been given in Jesus' name when we speak His word and claim it in our life?

Today, meditate on these verses. Hide them in your heart. Then, start to tap into the peace they bring when the enemy is on the attack. When we stand on God's Word, we won't fall for the tricks of the enemy!

I could go on and on. God's Word is overflowing with peace!!!! But, let me leave you with this one. Truly it is my prayer for each of you today-

I pray that God, the source of hope, will fill you completely with joy and peace because you trust in him. Then you will overflow with confident hope through the power of the Holy Spirit. ~ Romans 15:13
