The Holy Spirit Will Fill Us with Peace (Evening)
2 Corinthians 4:6 For it is the God who commanded light to shine out of darkness, who has shone in our hearts to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.
When Daniel was in the lions’ den, King Darius could not sleep all night in his majestic palace. His mind was unsettled, his heart filled with sorrow and regret. The decision he made caused Daniel, his confidant, to be punished in the lions’ den. On the other hand, Daniel could be so calm. Early in the morning while checking the lion’s den, Darius was very surprised seeing Daniel still alive, no wound was found on him. Daniel testified to the king that My God sent his angel, and he shut the mouths of the lions. They have not hurt me, because I was found innocent in his sight.
Tonight, if any of us are having a hard struggle, let us learn from Daniel’s intimate relationship with God. Because of this relationship, Daniel not only knew that God was with him, but he really felt God’s presence. That’s why he could stay calm and peaceful even amid a herd of hungry wild lions.
When we want to continue to train our spirits to be connected to the Holy Spirit, we will be able to experience God’s presence. This reality is not only understood by our brains, but also experienced by our spirit. Once we experience God’s presence, then we WON’T JUST KNOW that God is with us, but we REALLY EXPERIENCE Him. The peace we have will rise to a very different level. We will be able to feel the flow of peace that surpasses all understanding. God’s peace will continue to flow throughout our bodies, and it radiates outward so that the glory of Christ can be seen by many people around us.
When our spirit is CONNECTED WITH THE HOLY SPIRIT, peace will FILL our HEART.

“Father, we long to experience true peace in You. Teach us and enable us to build our spiritual man to be stronger and more sensitive to Your presence. Thank you, Father, in the name of the Lord Jesus we pray. Amen.”
