The one thing Satan as a warring restless fallen angel does not wish for any man to have, is peace. Therefore, as much as he is a terrible impersonator and counterfeiter, Satan will never say to you in your challenging circumstances that you should be still.
Satan as an anarchist that is full of evil wrath does not want any human being to be still in any way or form. But God who in His infinite mercies created us to rest in Him as Peace itself does not desire for us to be without Him as Peace. And it is precisely for the sake of setting us free from the anarchy state of Satan, that He came in the Person of Christ to fulfil all the righteousness, that are necessary for us to be restored back into His peaceful presence.
By reason of His perfect blood of remission shed on the cross of Calvary for the redemption of our souls, Christ has purchased the right for us to have access to the Holy Spirit of God and enjoy a peaceful relationship with Him as our Maker (Isaiah 9:6, Romans 5:1). Therefore as an offspring of Christ, you have a legitimate right to enter into God's peaceful presence and rest and abide with Him (Romans 5:1-5). It is therefore important that you consciously choose each day to enforce and enjoy your right of peace against Satan the restless warring angel who as an evil spirit that, is full of wrath is an enemy of peace.
Rest and abide daily in Christ the Prince of Peace and do not allow the devil to rob you of your right to peace with his wicked strategies of anxiety and worries. No matter the circumstances of your life today and irrespective of how chaotic things might seem on the surface, know for a fact, that God is in charge of all matters. And be rest assured that, He is able to make a way for you where there seem to be no way. Therefore, find peace in His Word of promises and: Be still and know that He is God!
Hold on to peace. Let go of restlessness. Delight in worship and let go of worry. Have faith in the LORD and trust in His perfect Will for your life. Believe that He is able to do much more than you can think or want from Him. Bless the LORD with praises. Worship Him for who He is and not for what you want Him to give you. He is as your God and Maker worthy of all your praises. Appreciate Him for the remission blood of Jesus, that was shed on the cross of Calvary for the redemption of your soul. Thank Him for this day and for the opportunity He has given you to draw closer to Him. Draw closer to the LORD in your heart, mind, body spirit and soul and choose to embrace Him daily as your Peace, Joy, Rest, Love and eternal Redeemer.
Rejoice in Him full of gladness and give thanks to the LORD who has delivered you from darkness and called you to be a partaker of His marvellous light. Rest in His finished work and fix your eyes daily on Christ the author and finisher of faith (Hebrews 12:1-3). Be still in Christ, the good Shepherd (John 10:10-14). He is able to calm every storm and destroy every demonic force trying to prevent you from reaching His predestined desired destination for your soul. He is able to turn every test into a testimony. He is able to make you all that He wants you to be. Relax, rejoice and receive from the Prince of Peace today His abundance flow of peace. Be still in the knowledge of the fact that greater is He who is in you that he that is of this world in this world (1 John 4:4).
