Peace is your First Line of Defense

IMG_230212077788846

“And Jesus arose & rebuked the sea, ‘Peace. Be still.’ And the wind ceased & there was great calm. And He said, ‘Why are you so fearful? How is it that you have no faith?'” Mark 4:39-40

Do you see that as soon as the disciples lost their peace fear replaced their faith?

It only took fear a few minutes to change everything. They no longer trusted the Word from Jesus, that he’d just spoken 4 verses before.  Their sole focus became their anxiety, which caused panic, even though Jesus was asleep in the same boat!

Fear is a liar & a thief! It steals more dreams and destinies than anything else. Peace is your first line of defense, so maintain your peace!
