"He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says..."
God bless you.
Have you ever wondered why you're not at Peace even though Jesus said He's given you His?
If so, let me ask you this: HAVE YOU YIELDED ALL OF YOUR SUBSTANCE TO HIM?
"What do you mean by substance ?" may be what you're asking now.
Here's what I mean...
Along with my heart and soul, the stuff inside of me that wants to "handle" situations, "figure" people out, and "take on" problems and issues is my substance. The calculating, intellectual, Mr. Fix-It parts of me - even the parts that generate fleshly compassion based on outward circumstance - MUST all be surrendered to God's jurisdiction in order for me to receive His free gift of Peace. One thing's for sure, beloved - the flesh cannot create its own peace! The flesh is chaos and confusion and stubborn independence from God... how much of that is peaceful?
Get with Abba, Jesus, and Holy Spirit in your secret place and tell Them you can't handle anything... it's true. Let Holy Spirit within you fill your mouth and your being with repentance and humility; acknowledge to the Lord that only HE can handle and take on the issues of your being, from the inside-out, then RELEASE IT ALL TO HIS CONTROL.
Please pray this prayer with me: "Father, I yield all my substance to You, in Jesus' Name. Please handle everything, because I can't handle anything. Please restore Your free gift of Peace within me, filling every void, and cover me with Your Blood. I put myself into agreement with all Your will and way concerning me. I thank You for it in Jesus' Precious Name. Amen."
May the PEACE and CALM OF GOD HIMSELF abide with you always in Christ Jesus, as you continually yield all of your substance to Him. Amen.
