BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: Philippians 1-4
TOPIC: PEACE: FRUIT OF THE HOLY SPIRIT
FIRE SCRIPTURE: John 14:26-31
John 14:27- “`”Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.”“`
Never be in a hurry; approach everything quietly and in the calmness of the Spirit.
PRAISE WORSHIP: Take a worship song as led by the Holy Spirit
PROPHETIC WORD FOR TODAY:
THE PEACE THAT IS OF GOD SHALL CALM EVERY STORM IN YOUR LIFE, IN THE NAME OF JESUS.
The result of the Holy Spirit’s work in your life is deep and lasting peace. Unlike worldly peace, which is defined as the absence of conflict, this peace is confident assurance in any circumstance. With Christ’s peace, you have no need to fear the present or the future.
The peace of God will make you to overcome fear, uncertainty, doubt etc. that are within you and it will offer you peace in place of conflict. Peace is the calmness that comes into your heart by your reconciliation with God (Colossians 3:15). Philippians 4:7 says that the peace of God that passeth all understanding shall keep your heart. Real peace comes from knowing that because God is in control, your citizenship in Christ’s kingdom is sure; your destiny is set and your victory over sin is certain.
God is not a God of confusion but of peace and His desire is to give you peace. Jesus came to the world to give the world peace (Luke 2:14).
Peace as a fruit of the Spirit is an inner characteristic which manifests itself in freedom from quarrelsome contentions with others. It seeks to live peaceably with all men. If your life is full of stress, allow the Holy Spirit to fill you with Christ’s peace. The world cannot offer peace because it doesn’t have any and does not know the One who is the giver of peace.
Beloved, you can reject the chaos of the world and embrace God’s peace. Jesus told His disciples in John 16:33 that it is only in Him we can find peace, not in the world. He promised to be with you in all the temptation and tribulations of the world. You can claim the peace of Christ in the most troublesome times if you believe that God has won the victory for you.
A life of peace is to be safe and secure both physically and mentally. The Bible says that if you are spiritually minded, you will have peace (Romans 8:6).
1. God of peace, reign in every area of my life, in the name of Jesus Christ.
2. Every power assigned to steal my peace, die, in the name of Jesus Christ.
3. Lord, grant me the spirit of contentment, in the name of Jesus Christ.
4. Holy Spirit, reveal to me my divine destiny and grant me the grace to fulfil it, in the name of Jesus.
5. Spirit of envy and covetousness, loose your hold upon my life, in the name of Jesus Christ.
6. Lord Jesus, let my gaze be on You all the days of my life, in the name of Jesus Christ.
7. I shall not run the race of another person, in the name of Jesus Christ.
