John 14:27 (NKJV) Peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.
John 16:33 (NKJV) These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world.”
As long as we live in this world, the elements of the world will continue to try to disturb our lives – by taking advantage of whatever conditions or events we experience in our daily lives. The ‘most often and the easiest’ is to intimidate, scare and worry. Everything is intended only to make us lose divine peace.
The normal life of a believer is to continue enjoying divine peace and joy! But the enemy will continue to try to steal it from our lives.
Realize this principle: As long as we still live in this world, we will indeed continue to get distraction from the elements of the world, but Jesus has already overcome the world!
Now the condition is how much we allow the ‘lies of the elements of the world’ to affect our lives, that’s how far we will be affected. But remember, once the enemy has a foothold in our lives, he will continue to try to eat away at us from within!
Take decisive action, do not let the enemy one bit put his foot into our lives. Get rid of him completely and enjoy the fullness of His peace (1 Peter 5: 7-10).
Make sure the area of memory and reason in our souls continues to be controlled by His Word because this is usually an area that is always used as a ‘headquarters’ by the elements of the world in their efforts to conquer us. Continue to imagine and declare for peace His full power in your life!
