The word peace is a complex word to say the least. One can check out the definition in the Merriam Webster Dictionary for the different meanings of peace. The meaning that I would like to discuss is the one we find in the passage in Luke 4:35, PEACE…

Luke 4:35, “But Jesus rebuked him, saying, Be silent (muzzled, gagged), and come out of him! And when the demon had thrown the man down in their midst, he came out of him without injuring him in any possible way.” AMP

In this passage, be silent refers to hold thy peace, in other words be muzzled and gagged. It is a command spoken to the enemy. There wasn’t any peace before Jesus spoke, the man was living in utter chaos. Peace, silence and stillness can only come about when our enemy is silenced and defeated. The good news is that Jesus defeated the enemy long ago on the cross and He has given us the gift of peace. If we accept it and apply His victory, we too can live totally in the peace that passes all understanding, (Philippians 4:7), no matter what circumstances we are currently in.

Jesus crushed the head of the serpent on the cross and has given us the victory. True peace only comes when our enemies are silenced and powerless. Another sense of the word peace is for one to have his foot on the neck of his enemy. Referring to Jesus, Hebrews 10:13, “…and since that time he waits for his enemies to be made his footstool.” NIV This is too much to go into right now so I’ll have to save it for a later post. When we give our lives and heart to Him in exchange for Who He is, we walk into His victory. If we choose to walk His way and appropriate His victory in our lives we can live in peace. It doesn’t matter what the circumstances look like on the surface, reality must bow to the truth. Let go of your cares and stress and let peace rule in your heart. He has under control the things you allow Him to control. His victory is your victory. Let go and let God.

May the Lord lead you down the path of peace. May you come to know Him more and more everyday. He longs for you to know Him and to share His secrets with you. He knows you by name. He knows your thoughts and hurts. He longs to hold you close and fill you with His love. Let Him make Himself real to you. Have a great day.

Janiece and I travel and minister to individuals and groups as doors open for us to go. We are starting a new thing this year. We will be going to communities, as the Lord leads, and booking hotel meeting rooms to do concerts. We will invite those from the hotel as well as the community. We will connect to other churches and organizations in those communities to help those who desperately need help, and who, perhaps won't come into a church building. We share His love to those who haven’t heard of their Father’s love for them and also minister in song. We’ve both been through a lot and have been healed and restored and that we have to pass on to others. We can speak through truth and experience because we’ve been there. If you would like to book us for a concert, event, speaking and/or ministry meeting, please use our CONTACT page. We hope we have helped to encourage you to go on and find the wonderful destiny God has planned for you. Psalm 139. Fly higher…
