It’s in those times of when everything is going haywire; out of control, you’re getting attacked from every corner it seems and it’s not letting up. You find your self living your life as a circus tiger being whipped and prodded by the enemy in an environment that seems like you cannot get out of. What does this sound like? War.
War is the opposite of peace, and without peace in our lives this is what the enemy does to those who don’t know God’s peace or those who won’t allow God’s peace to infiltrate their life because of their own willpower or having the attitude of “I can”. The “I can” cannot do what the “I Am” can do, some of us have this mindset of ourselves being able to have victory in the littlest parts of our lives when really we can’t, God cares more about those “little things” just as much as He does with the “big things”.
Jesus Sends Out the Seventy-Two
After this the Lord appointed seventy-two others and sent them on ahead of him, two by two, into every town and place where he himself was about to go. 2 And he said to them, “The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few. Therefore pray earnestly to the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into his harvest. 3 Go your way; behold, I am sending you out as lambs in the midst of wolves. 4 Carry no money bag, no knapsack, no sandals, and greet no one on the road. 5 Whatever house you enter, first say, ‘Peace be to this house!’ 6 And if a son of peace is there, your peace will rest upon him. But if not, it will return to you.
Just as Jesus had sent out the seventy-two, He has also sent us out to declare His peace to others. God gives us the opportunity to release peace wherever we are at, to clear the path, remove offense and to shift the atmosphere. To remove the boundaries of fear and to bring Hope for the Hopeless. Whatever situation you are in today remember this, “Be still and know that I am God” accept the peace that He has for you today!
