These things I have spoken to you while being present with you. But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, He will teach you all things, and bring to your remembrance all things that I said to you. Peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.
Key Phrase: Peace to Flourish
There is only one topic on the mind of many today – the spreading plague. It has brought mankind to a halt and all we hear is doom and gloom, bad news and stories that could lead to depression, preventing us from flourishing as He intended.
But Psalm 92:12-13 says, The righteous shall flourish like a palm tree, He shall grow like a cedar in Lebanon. Those who are planted in the house of the Lord Shall flourish in the courts of our God.
God never intended for us to live an anxious life, because anxiety keeps us from blossoming or flourishing. And that’s the point, God wants us to flourish in EVERY situation, not some, not many, but ALL. He gave us the gift of the Holy Spirit to minister peace in every situation, because out of peace comes a flourishing.
Father, we ask for the help of the Holy Spirit to constantly remind us that Jesus is the Prince of peace. Lord, help us to remain firmly planted in your word so that we will flourish even when the world is in chaos. Mostly Lord, I pray that in this season, your Holy Spirit will descend on every city on earth to propagate your peace and healing. Let the earth flourish again, In Jesus name.
