“And he arose, and rebuked the wind, and said unto the sea, Peace, be still. And the wind ceased, and there was a great calm.” (Mark 4: 39)
That is the Focal Scripture of Streams of Joy Devotional today.
In our Focal Scripture, Jesus said unto the sea, “Peace, be still”. In the Hebrew language, ‘peace’ is derived from the word ‘shalom’ which is interpreted to mean ‘nothing missing, and nothing broken’. So Jesus was affirming that at the end of that storm, there would be nothing missing and nothing broken. Jesus simply affirmed that they were coming out of the negative experience with nothing missing and nothing broken.
Friend, hear me as I hear the Lord: concerning that affliction that has come your way, you are coming out with nothing missing and nothing broken. Concerning the battles that are currently raging against you, there will be nothing missing and nothing broken. Concerning the roadblocks and demonic gatekeepers that have vowed that you will not cross over to your new season in peace, there will be nothing missing and nothing broken. Your story shall be ‘nothing missing, nothing broken’.
The storm had its say while it lasted, but Jesus had the final say when the chips were down. The storm created panic, but in the end, there was nothing missing and nothing broken. Go and announce to the storms that gathered against you, that there will be nothing missing and nothing broken. Go and announce to the demons of hell that said you will not advance: you will surely advance, and it will be nothing missing, nothing broken.
God is the script writer of your destiny, and He will not author a script and allow the devil to complete what He started. God will not open doors for you and allow the devil to make a mess of the same doors He opened. God will not make all things to work for your good and still allow the enemy to turn the same things against you. If God be for you, your story will not be incomplete. If God be for you, nothing will break or miss.
Speak peace to every sea that is raging around and against you. As surely as the Lord lives, there shall be nothing missing and nothing broken.
Psalm 37: 37 says: “Mark the perfect man, and behold the upright: for the end of that man is peace.”
Declare With Me: No matter the storm, there shall be nothing missing and nothing broken, in Jesus’ name!
