When fear, worries, and anxiety attack us, let us remember that Jesus is the prince of peace and He can calm the storm.
Fear & Anxiety
Fear and anxiety are what most people feel when the worries of this world come or the enemy attacks us. When we do feel fear during those moments, let us check ourselves because what’s inside of us is the thing that comes out of us. So, if fear and anxiety come out of us, we don’t have the peace of Jesus Christ inside of us.
Paul Martini shares a powerful message about peace in times of trials and distress. He referenced Romans 16:20 to emphasize that Jesus, the God of peace, crushes Satan under our feet. That’s how powerful His peace is.
“Who crushes Satan under your own feet according to the apostle Paul? The God of Peace. Why? Because His peace is that powerful,” he said.
Prince of peace
Mark 4: 35-40 tells the story of how the apostles feared after encountering a storm while they were on the boat. That story also showed us how the power of the Prince of peace calmed the storm. The fear that the disciples felt during that moment immobilized them, to the point that they even forgot about their faith. That’s how dangerous fear is.
“The one thing about fear is that it spreads like wildfire, it immobilizes you. It doesn’t allow anything positive to come out of it,” Paul explained.
Jesus will calm the storm
No matter what we are facing right now, let us remember that Jesus can calm any storm. The God of peace is in you. Jesus will calm any worries you have right now and will give you His peace.
“Jesus, who gets up within the same storm, in the same boat, instead of accepting the fear that’s in front of Him, He releases the peace that’s inside Him. He overcomes the storm.”
