*🌽SEEDS OF DESTINY🍇* 

A DAILY DEVOTIONAL GUIDE 

DATE: MONDAY 21ST SEPTEMBER, 2020

*TOPIC: UNDERSTANDING PEACE*

SCRIPTURE: And the work of righteousness shall be peace; and the effect of righteousness quietness and assurance for ever. Isaiah 32:17.

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Peace is the state of quietness and confidence under all circumstances.

In our previous study, we established that many people have one form of misconception or the other of what peace is all about. They try to do many things in a desperate quest for peace and fulfilment to the detriment of their souls. This is because they don’t know what peace is truly all about.

In our study today, we shall seek to understand what true peace is all about. I will give you two definitions of peace from the Oxford Advanced Learner’s Dictionary, and three other definitions based on Scriptures.

Now, what is peace?

1. Freedom from anxiety

The Oxford Advanced Learner’s Dictionary defines peace as freedom from anxiety or distress; it is the state of tranquillity. So, when one is said to be at peace, it means one is free from anxiety and distress.

2. Freedom from conflicts

The Oxford Advanced Learner’s Dictionary also defines peace as a state or period in which there is no war or war has ended. It is freedom from conflicts and crisis. When your life is free from crisis, we say that you are at peace.

3. Peace is the stability of heart and mind in the midst of confrontation or adversity (Philippians 4:6-7).

To have peace is like having a feather that is unruffled in the midst of crisis or storm. It is such stability of heart and mind in the midst of confrontations or adversities that makes people wonder whether you are not in the same world with them. It may be personal or generational confrontations.

4. Peace is a state of calmness and restfulness in the midst of pressure or urgency (Philippians 4:6-7). 

Peace gives you freedom from every form of tension. During the construction of the Glory Dome, the international headquarters of Dunamis International Gospel Centre, many people who came to see me at that time wondered why I was so much at peace with such a massive construction going on. It is called the peace of God that beats all understanding. Peace is the state of calmness and restfulness in the midst of pressure. It is a state where you are free from tensions and urgencies.

5. Peace is the state of quietness and confidence under all circumstances.

Peace is the state of quiet assurance and confidence (Isaiah 32:17). There seems to be something you are confident in. Righteousness equals peace, quietness and assurance. This means, peace equals quietness and assurance. It is the state of quiet assurance and confidence under all circumstances. When you experience peace, you cannot be recruited into the generational panic and fear that everyone experiences.

Beloved, God shall give you peace by all means in Jesus Name (2 Thessalonians 3:16).

Remember this: Peace is the state of quietness and confidence under all circumstances.

ASSIGNMENTS:

1. Make up your mind to live an anxiety or stress-free life.

2. Ask God for the stability of your heart and mind in all circumstances.

3. Maintain a state of calmness and restfulness in the Lord regardless of the situation of your life.

PRAYER: O Lord, I ask that You make Your peace a reality in my life. Help me to maintain calmness and quietness in all circumstances, Lord, in Jesus’ Name.

FOR FURTHER UNDERSTANDING, GET THIS MESSAGE: THE PEACE OF GOD.

QUOTE: When you are in bitterness, you cease to be in peace, and therefore, you are deprived of all these things; you are deprived of health, prosperity, peace, favour, completeness, soundness, quietness, wellness, happiness, friendliness and it is such a limitation. Culled from “AM I BITTER?” by Dr Becky Paul-Enenche.

DAILY READING: Amos 5-7.

AMAZING FACT: Ants can go to war with rival colonies for weeks at a time.

PROPHETIC DECLARATION/WORD: The peace of God that beats imagination overwhelms your life today and going forward, in Jesus’ Name.

BY DR PST PAUL ENENCHE
