The Potential in You Part 3
“Peace – The World Won’t Understand You”

“Where lives change and where life can begin again”

Hi There! Are you ready to get in the Word? I am! This is the richest part of my week. My

prayers are that these devotionals of study will enrich your life and inspire you to go deeper 

into the things of God. I want to make these truths as simple as possible to help you in your 

everyday walk of life. The study of the Word is the best decision you could ever make. As you 

apply these steps, I promise, God promises, your life will change for the good.


Let’s talk about peace. Let’s look at some scriptures that helps us know the covenant that

God has with us concerning peace.

Isaiah 26:12 (NKJV)

Lord, You will establish peace for us, For You have also done all our works in us.


Isaiah 54:10 (NKJV)

For the mountains shall depart And the hills be removed,

But My kindness shall not depart from you, Nor shall My covenant of peace be removed,”

 Says the 

Lord, who has mercy on you.


John 14:27 (MSG)

25-27 “I’m telling you these things while I’m still living with you. The Friend, the Holy Spirit 

whom the Father will send at my request, will make everything plain to you. He will remind

you of all the things I have told you. I’m leaving you well and whole. That’s my parting gift to 

you. Peace. I don’t leave you the way you’re used to being left—feeling abandoned, bereft. So, 

don’t be upset. Don’t be distraught.


Jesus left us a precious gift, because He knew we would need Him to win the “battles” in our

lives. The Holy Spirit is the best gift you can have. Peace is a part of Him and one of the 

many gifts we have from God. Remember, God is not the author of confusion, Satan is. 

Where there is peace, you know this is God. Always follow peace. When there is confusion 

and turmoil, quickly recognize it is Satan. Run immediately to the Word.

(1 Corinthians 14:33)


Simple, right? No, not until we settle this in our hearts, that God is in us and we have the

power of peace in us to figure out any situation and come out on top, then it becomes 

simpler. We must recognize the tactics of the enemy quickly and do what God has told us. 

Rejoice! Meditate the Word in you and breath deep and find the peace of God. If there is no 

word in you, there will be nothing to meditate on accept what you see around you. The Word 

of God is vital to your peace. Hear His voice and He will lead. God has given us the awesome 

gift of the Holy Spirit to guide us and lead us to peace and to our victory. Once peace comes,

answers will follow. In February, 2004, I received a phone call that my daughter had been in a 

fatal drowning accident. My life as I knew it went spiraling down and I felt totally out of 

control. I had to get away from the screams and tears and hear God. I didn’t understand. I 

got quiet and took a deep breath, the first of many over the next year, and I asked God “What 

is going on?” And He told me, “Lynette, I caught her in my arms and she never knew a 

moment of fear or pain.” I told Him, “I don’t understand.” He asked, “Do you trust me?” I said, 

“Yes, Lord.” Peace filled the room like a blanket of comfort and I knew He was in the room 

with me. I can’t say the road was easy from that day on, but it got better with each day that I 

put my hand in His hand and trusted Him with  each step. That is the peace that surpasses 

all understanding. The world can’t understand this peace, but it is in you because you made 

Jesus the Lord of your life. And He sent you the “Comforter” that bought peace with Him.


Definition of peace:

Freedom of the mind from annoyance, distraction, anxiety, an obsession, etc.; tranquility, 

serenity. Free from the bondage of Satan.


It is so important that we know how Satan comes into our lives to bring confusion and stress.

(2 Cor 2:11) If we don’t start recognizing the signs, we will keep going in the same crazy 

cycle forever. While he is pushing our buttons, and keeping us on puppet strings and we are 

dancing to his beat, unfortunately, he is laughing at our expense. Enough is enough! God has 

already given us a way of escape. The power of His peace within us.


Philippians 4:6-7

6 Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let

your requests be made known to God; 7 and the peace of God, which surpasses all 

understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.


Stop stressing over the mountains in your life. What did God say to do to  those mountains?

(Mark 11:22-24) Speak to them, believing with the faith of God. You can’t even speak until 

you have received your peace to hear God and know what to say and when.

Pull out the fruit of peace, it’s in there. Know the potential that is on the inside of you. You 

can change your world, right now. Don’t wait one more minute,

start today!



You have lots of scripture here to study and meditate on. Take each scripture written out and

in parenthesis and write them all down. Take time to meditate upon the power in you to 

create the peace you need in your life TODAY. Everyone needs it. I need it and you need it.

I make the commitment to study these scriptures right along with you. Get together with a

friend and hold one another accountable to read this week.


Are you ready to change? You got the power. Use it to change your world.
