Speak Peace, Brave One

“Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee.” Isaiah 26:3, KJV.

Do you know those nights? The kind of night when tears hit your pillow as life overwhelms you or the nights you toss back and forth. Sometimes, we miss the nudge from God and think that all we need to sleep well is a comfortable position, but what we need is His peace.

Perfect peace doesn’t come from perfect circumstances, a robust savings account, or straight A’s on your report card. Perfect peace is supernatural and flows from the throne room of God. When your life is being shaken, when your faith is tested, when you are grieving, there is hope. There is perfect peace that can pass your comprehension (Phil. 4:7) and every fear and stress has to submit to the authority of God. So, speak peace today, brave one.

Prayer: God, I’m so thankful I’m not alone during this lonely time of my life. Help me to trust you. Speak peace to my spirit. I cannot live in a state of worry, please help me speak life. Prove to me today that you are the peacemaker and help me keep my mind on You!

      Thank you so much, Sis. Jacqueline. I hope God continues to speak to you through all of these devotions. I, too, have been so encouraged by many of the devotions and articles written on moretolivetoday.com – it seems like a timely word comes everyday. 🙂 God is so good.
