SEEDS OF DESTINY DAILY DEVOTIONAL BY DR. PASTOR PAUL ENENCHE.
TOPIC: ACCESSING DIVINE INSTRUCTIONS.
Be still, and know that I am God: I will be exalted among the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth. Psalm 46:10.
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: The peace of God attracts instruction, revelation and direction from God.
In our previous studies, we saw two reasons why peace is needed in our lives. We saw that peace is needed to confront and conquer certain storms that may arise in our journey of life. We also saw that we need peace or rest from anxiety for God to work in our lives.
Now, another reason why peace is needed is that the peace of God attracts instruction, revelation and direction from God. Psalms 46:10 says, Be still, and know that I am God…
There is knowledge in stillness. There is something to know when you are at peace. If you are still, you will know…
Numbers 9:8 says, And Moses said unto them, Stand still, and I will hear what the Lord will command concerning you.
This means, if there is too much tension and worry around you, you can’t hear anything from God. When you stand still, you will hear. So, calm down! Moses seemed to say to the children of Israel, “Your noise is disrupting my hearing. Your worry is disrupting my hearing. Your tension is disrupting my hearing from God. Stand still! Calm down! And I will hear.”
Isaiah 55:12 says, For ye shall go out with joy, and be led forth with peace: the mountains and the hills shall break forth before you into singing, and all the trees of the field shall clap their hands.
So, if you need to be led, you can only be led while peace is in place. You shall go out with joy and be led forth with peace. So, God is saying to you, “Calm down! Let me talk to you. Calm down, let me show you who I AM. Just calm down! Your mind is like a football field – too many things are running through it. You are just roaming up and down. Calm down!”
The peace of God is the fountain of true joy. And you know that joy is key to strength. You cannot have joy if you lack peace. Proverbs 12:20 says, Deceit is in the heart of them that imagine evil: but to the counsellors of peace is joy.
This means, there is joy for those who possess peace and offer it to others.
Romans 15:13 says, Now the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace…
Beloved, when God fills you with joy, it goes with peace. It is impossible to have joy when you lack peace. It is impossible to be excited in anxiety. It is impossible to be happy when you are anxious. It is impossible to have joy when you are concerned about everything. Therefore, make up your mind to have peace at all cost.
The peace of God attracts instruction, revelation and direction from God.
- Make the choice for peace instead of worrying.
- Refuse for your heart to be occupied with the worries of this life.
- Endeavour to remain still and calm in the face of all circumstances so as to access Divine direction.
