Jesus: God with Us
Submitting to the Prince of Peace
By Michael Youssef, Ph D. 12/24/21
Without the Prince of Peace ruling our hearts and minds, we will have no peace. There can be no peace in our homes unless we place our families under the authority of the Prince of Peace. There can be no peace in any friendship unless the Prince of Peace presides over that relationship. There can be no peace anywhere in the world where the Prince of Peace is not ruling supreme.
We may say that Jesus reigns over our hearts, but there always seems to be an area that we keep locked away from Him, whether it is our finances, our activities, a relationship, or a hidden sin. Until we allow Jesus to rule every aspect of our lives, our peace will be incomplete. We cannot experience the benefits of knowing the Prince of Peace if we do not submit to His authority and power. We cannot have true peace without giving up control of our lives to the Prince.
Are you experiencing a lack of peace in your life? Is it because your heart is filled with fears and anxieties? Today, surrender leadership of your entire life to the Prince of Peace.
Prayer: God, show me if I have allowed things in my life to keep me from having the peace You want to give me. Help me surrender those things to You and allow You to fill me with peace as You reign over every part of my life. I pray in the name of Jesus. Amen.
“The mind governed by the flesh is death, but the mind governed by the Spirit is life and peace” (Romans 8:6).
