The Presence of God – Our Seal of Peace
Psalm 16:11 – You will show me the path of life; in your presence is fullness of joy; at Your right hand are pleasures forevermore.
The presence of God is our seal of peace. Remember the definition of peace includes wholeness, fullness and freedom from all oppression. The above scripture in essence, is saying that it is the presence of God that guarantees our fullness. As you are aware, people have security around them for safety and peace of mind, although such security is temporary. In a similar light, though more profound and permanent, the presence of God around us is our seal of peace, fullness, wholeness and a molestation-free life.
Please be aware that any conflict in the natural is an off shoot of a spiritual contention. God is the Father of peace and He is our seal of peace. His presence with us subdues all other spiritual forces. The Father of spirits is our seal of fullness and wholeness, so no opposition can intimidate or frustrate our lives anymore.
Notwithstanding, it is our responsibility to tap into this privilege and lay hold of this. We have to make a choice to rely and rest on God’s promises of peace, fullness and wholeness in the face of adversity. We have authority in Christ to affect our peace through the use of the name of Jesus. Storms don’t calm themselves; someone has to calm them.
Peace is not a natural phenomenon; it is a spiritual phenomenon that is introduced by the application of a superior spiritual force -the force of the presence of God. Please be aware that God is everywhere but the active presence of God is not everywhere. We are carriers of God’s presence and therefore we are carriers of divine peace. God does not live in space like gas. He lives in people. Wake up and take responsibility for your peace and the peace of the world around you. Rule thou in the midst of your enemy and then let peace reign in your world.
