Prayer 2021 - July 1 - The Peace of God pt 1

Scripture For Today:

 Exodus 8:8

 “Pharaoh summoned Moses and Aaron and said, “Pray to the Lord to take the frogs away from me and my people, and I will let your people go to offer sacrifices to the Lord.”

The Peace of God pt 1

We have been studying what the Apostle Paul had to say about the benefits of praying in the Spirit as outlined in Ephesians 6:18. But today, I want us to look at what he had to say in Ephesians 4:6-8.

“Be careful for nothing, but in everything, by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving, let  your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which passes all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. Finally, my brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of a good report – if there be any virtue and if there be any praise, think on these things.”

Many people would like to have the Peace of God that Paul is talking about here in verse 7, right?

Verse 7 in the Amplified Bible says, “And God’s peace be yours, that tranquil state of a soul, assured of its salvation through Christ, and so fearing nothing from God and content with its earthly lot, whatsoever sort that is, that peace that transcends all understanding, shall garrison and mount guard over your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.”

I like that last part, “that peace which transcends all understanding, shall garrison and mount guard over your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.”

This means that God can keep both, your heart and your mind and your spirit, in peace. Amen!

This peace, the Peace of God, comes to us when we obey verse 6, “Be careful for nothing; but in everything, by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God.”

This is saying that the Peace of God in our soul lives is the direct result of a successful prayer life and obeying the Word. And we can only do that by spending time in the Word and making a sincere effort at spending time in the presence of God, through the Holy Spirit, during our prayer time. Amen!

It is impossible to obtain all that God wants for us in life, all that has been provided, all things that will give us the Peace of God and the things of God – it is impossible, without spending time in the Word of God through our study time and it is impossible without spending time in the presence of God through our prayer time.

We will pick it up here tomorrow, because I want to show you what happens when you try to do something outside of God’s way of doing things. It just doesn’t work. But we will get into that tomorrow.

Let’s Pray!

Bob Thibodeau

Pastor Robert Thibodeau has been in online ministry since starting his own podcast in mid-2009. Within about six months, he was offered a slot on nationwide Christian AM radio. His broadcast was heard in four major markets for one year.

He then started what today is called, "Evangelism Radio" and went live 24/7 beginning on October 4, 2010 and continues to this day. Now with over 50 broadcasters submitting programming on a weekly basis, Evangelism Radio has listeners in over 160 nations and all 50 states. It was also ranked by Shoutcast.com as #1 in the world in the Christian Talk genre on many occasions.

In late 2017, Pastor Bob began an interview style podcast called "The Kingdom Cross Roads Podcast." On this podcast, Pastor Bob interviews Christians from various walks of life on how they use their Faith to achieve success. Authors, recording artists, business CEO's, non-profit leaders and pastors and ministers frequent the show and provide amazing insight to build your faith. In only 3 years time, The KCR Podcast has published almost 900 episodes and Pastor Bob conducted over 700 interviews!

In early 2018, in response to the lack of any Christian themed podcast hosting platform in the market place, Pastor Bob coordinated with the iconic Mark Asquith and his team, with the result being "FaithCasters.net." A "Christian podcast hosting and marketing company created by Christians for Christians."

Due to the immense success Pastor Bob has achieved in the online ministry world, he is often asked by others "How to start a podcast." Not wanting to refer Christian brothers and sisters back into the world for help in establishing a Christian themed podcast, he started to develop the "Podcast-Training" platform offered through our ministry. He conducts training on a weekly basis to assist others in the development of their own personal podcast as well as ministry related podcasts that can air on Evangelism Radio.

Now, he has placed all of this information under one website location, "Podcasters for Christ." This makes it easier for other Christians to find the services they need in one spot rather than having to visit several different websites.
