Dear Beloved,

Let’s jump right into our brief discussion for today. Have you ever noticed that when you start your day in meditation and prayer, that the enemy will utilize whomever and whatever is available to come and try to distract the goodness that’s ahead in the day?  In order to recognize this, we must always strive to remain in a posture of peace, power, and praise in God’s presence.  For many of us, the problem is becoming intentional about turning our focus back on Jesus in the moment of any hindrance, or distraction.

Let’s examine the following verses (of many) that will immediately cause us to be victorious in the area of keeping and maintaining your peaceful place:

  • Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee (Isaiah 26:3, KJV).  Now, with practice we can all grow into keeping our mind on our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. I don’t know about you, but I prefer peace. In the midst of peace, we can be productive and yield fruit that will create windows of opportunity, and open doors that can’t be closed.
  • The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full (John 10:10, NIV). The Father gives us insight on the sole purpose of the enemy which is to steal, kill, and destroy. Friends, once the enemy has arrived in your space to try to disrupt your program for the day (or any part of your life), you and I have the power to dismiss him immediately. Jesus came, died, and rose again for us to live an abundant life, and this includes a consistent disposition of peace.
Peace begins with a smile, so be happy! -Unknown
