The Enemy of Peace

I used to be a worrier. My life was literally a barrage of worry, but to the point, that insomnia developed as the enemy took over my mind

I would go over scenarios in my head of the ”what if” and it paralysed me for years because I refused to let go of the torment. I used to make Kieren systematically go through these scenarios that my thoughts and feelings had conjured up and demand to know how we would get through them

Yet, over the years, after finding God, no matter what I threw at God within our conversations, I realised that with every triumph within my life, I learnt to trust Him

Scripture told me to give all my worries to God. Yet, my worry, for years before doing this, was that God would reject me because of my imperfectness

Then one day, I suddenly realised that I had been sleeping at night, and I was no longer afraid to go outside the door

Friends, the peace of God transcends over us when we choose to trust God over our lives

Trust looks like a flower when it feels the sun’s morning light. In that, the petals open to receive all that the sun has to offer

The same thing occurs when we open the petals of our soul to Jesus. Each petal represents our fears, our worries, our doubts. Yet one by one, as we open ourselves up to God’s light, He becomes the focus, and that is when we receive His goodness within our lives

If God cares about us enough to ask Jesus to die for us, why would He then not lead us into a life of abundance from His love, His peace, His joy, and grace?

Today, I encourage you that if you are worried, to go after God’s presence instead. Run towards your Bible, pray over Scripture, put the worship music on loud, and ANYTHING that you fear right now…speak it out, because wherever the Spirit is, there is freedom, and Jesus left the Spirit to be our Comforter, so give it all to God, and then watch Him replace those rubbishy tormented thoughts with peace over your life, today

“Give all your worries and cares to God, for he cares about you.”

1 Peter 5:7

My hearts desire is for everyone to have an intimate relationship with Christ. To hear the voice of God and to experience His presence. Also, to help disciple others to discover their purpose within the body of Christ - through the power of the Holy Spirit.

My God-given dream is to break down barriers within life and the Church as a whole to strengthen and develop relationships within every denomination and bring unity - so that we will collectively raise up together and fulfil the Great Commission, within this lifetime.

I am living proof that no matter what your past was or whatever your life has become - God will use you to fulfil what He created you to do, when you step out in obedience and faith.
