HIS GRACE AND HIS PEACE

When God manifests Himself as the God of Peace in our lives, His grace is the believer's unequaled defense and offense against the enemy's attacks.

  • "the God of Peace will crush Satan under your feet shortly. The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with with you. Amen." (Romans 16:20)
Whenever the devil can get your eyes off of Christ and on yourself, he is winning the battle; whenever Satan and his schemes turn your attention to self-based success, your faith can then be misplaced or redirected to the glee of our enemy. If this is the case - "You will disqualify yourself mentally and inwardly from receiving whatever you might be trusting the Lord for." (The Prayer of Protection, Prince, p.69).

However, Grace is the Christian's undefeatable defense. If Christ's sacrifice on the cross does not account for our salvation, our healing, our protection, our deliverance, our redemption - our everything, then His free gift or unmerited favor, otherwise known as Grace, would have no influence on the enemy of our souls. 

However, Jesus' blood paid the price for our everything - in full! Jesus is not only someone believers can call "Your Grace" to His presence now and His face one day. Jesus is The Grace that qualifies us for every good thing that comes from The Father above. 

So, the next time you hear voices that question your Godly promises by listing your failures, all you have to do is refer them to the Grace you have through Christ's Blood. Then - "With grace as your basis, the God of peace can reign over your fears and impart to you unshakable faith for His protection!" (The Prayer of Protection, Prince, p.69).
