Dunamis’ Seeds of Destiny 27 September 2020 Devotional by Pastor Paul Enenche – Demands For Experiencing The Peace Of God
Topic: Demands For Experiencing The Peace Of God
When you receive Jesus Christ into your life, you have received peace. He guides us into the way of peace
SCRIPTURE: Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ: Romans 5:1.
THOUGHT FOR THE: Justification by faith or being born again is the entry point into the Peace of God.
Yesterday, we saw some scriptural facts about the peace of God.
Now, to experience this peace, there are scriptural demands to be met. Today, we shall look at some of the demands.
- Justification by faith
Justification by faith or being born again is the entry point into the Peace of God (Romans 5:1). Being born again is the entry point into the mercy of God. Jesus died so that we may walk in peace. He was beaten on the Cross that you may have peace (Isaiah 53:5). So, when you receive Jesus Christ into your life, you have received peace. He guides us into the way of peace (Luke 1:76-79). The mission of Jesus is to bring peace to us (Luke 2:14). Jesus is our Peace (Ephesians 2:14-16). No wonder He is called the Prince of peace (Isaiah 9:6).
Beloved, you cannot have Jesus Christ, the Prince of Peace and be in pieces. You cannot have the Prince of Peace and be in crisis. You have the right to make demands on the peace of God when you are born again. You can say, “Jesus, you died on the Cross of Calvary for my
- A heart stayed on God
Having a heart stayed on God is a secret of the peace of God (Isaiah 26:3). It is not the heart stayed on marriage or house rent issues that the scripture said will have peace, but a heart stayed on God. God keeps in perfect peace those whose hearts are stayed on Him. So, what you mind determines the peace you have. Don’t permit your heart to wander about and be troubled; centre your heart on God.
- Hand all your cares and worries over to God.
This is a major secret of peace. You will experience peace if you hand all your cares and worries over to God (Philippians 4:6-7).
Beloved, make up your mind to hand all your worries and pressures over to God. When you hand your worries over to God completely, you will feel lighter and He will give you rest (Matthew 11:28-29). God is saying to you, “Bring your problems to me. Give them all to me, and you will find peace”. (1 Peter 5:7). If there is anything that is putting your life under pressure, it means you have not yet handed that thing over to
Handing your cares and worries over to God is key to a world of peace.
Remember this: Justification by faith or being born again is the entry point into the Peace of God.
- Make up your mind to surrender your life to God today and experience His peace.
- Ensure that your heart is stayed on God.
- Hand all your cares and worries over to God.
PRAYER: O Lord, I surrender and rededicate my life to You afresh today. I ask for the grace to have my heart stayed on You. I hand all my cares and worries over to You, Lord, in Jesus’ Name.

QUOTE: There is a difference between faith and foolishness. Faith says, “Because the Word of God says I should go, I am going.” Foolishness says, “I do not have any peace; I do not feel any leading to go, but I have to go, because I am a believer.” Culled from “15 KINGDOM STRATEGIES FOR SURVIVAL” by Dr Paul Enenche.
DAILY READING: Nahum 2-Habakkuk 1
AMAZING FACT: Ants can smell with their antenna! The jaws of an ant are much like a pair of scissors; they open sideways.
PROPHETIC DECLARATION/WORD: Step into the realm of perfected peace today as your heart remains stayed on Him, in Jesus’ Name.
