Peace Settles Deep By Brenda Drake

In the troubled times perceived ahead; in Christ we still can experience a peace that settles deep within our heart, mind and soul.  Circumstances may not change as rapidly as the change undergone within.  Instead of fear of the future we can have faith to face the future.  Instead of hoping and praying for things to change we are given the ability to make a change. Instead of being a victim we become in Christ a victor.  Rather than looking for outward sources to help in trying times we stand on and testify God is our help in times of trouble.   God equips us with ability and knowledge to successfully face the giant knowing He will for us and through us destroy our enemy and chase fear from our land.

Peace Settles Deep

Lovely and quiet moments; when turmoil is stilled;
When, your heart is raised in prayer ready to be filled.
In the strange silence……peace settles deep,
And even more strange it seems you are filled with new strength.
The problems are laid down and are firmly placed,
In the care of the One you trust; to be by joy replaced.
The circumstances may not yet be changed, but somehow you know,
The One you love and serve is in full control.
The air has been cleared of the stench within,
The atmosphere is filled with the sweet aroma of your Lord again.
Lovely, quiet ….sometimes when not a word is said,
You’ve been freed from every worry and every fear of dread.
You are emptied and filled almost in one breath it seems;
So great is this place prepared for the redeemed!

John 14:27
Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth,
give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid

From Where does my Help Come? By Brenda Drake

Look up to the God that fights our battle.  I choose to praise the Lord for His victory.  He is the One that speaks to our troubled sea…Peace be still.

From Where does my Help Come?

From where does my help come from?
I look to God above He is the One.
In the battle what need I do?
I will in faith turn my eyes to You.
When the world taunts, shows its strength,
I go to the healing waters of God and take a healthy drink.
I will remember how the  walls or Jericho was pushed down.
By the power of praise, supernatural strength was found.
I will remember how the Egyptian army was enticed to give chase,
And was swallowed up in the once held back sea’s embrace.
I will remember how the enemy rejoiced at the death of Christ.
How the Father revealed its victory in our new life.
From where does our help come?  Hear this word of rhyme.
The Lord says, do not despair, give praise for the battle is mine.

Psalms 121:1-2
I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills,
from whence cometh my help.
 My help cometh from the Lord,
which made heaven and earth.  

Mark 4:39
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. 40 And he said unto them, Why are ye so fearful? how is it that ye have no faith?
