I would like to share a very special prayer experience with you this week.
It happened about 3 weeks ago, when I was praying in the evening, just before I was going to sleep. During my prayers, I was just sitting there and felt a very deep peace. It wasn’t just a drowsy, kind of gentle lullaby peace, but felt like a palpable energy, like a peaceful energy coming from my heart and filling my whole being.
I just sat there is still silence, soaking in the peace for two hours.
God also spoke to my heart while I was at peace, giving me many deep insights.
When I was feeling the peace, I didn’t just feel it in my heart but also felt a peaceful energy around me, like the whole universe was peace. It made me realize that God is peace, He is in control of the universe and so the universe is good, it is full of God’s peace. When I was a younger Christian, I had a very negative view of the universe. I always saw the universe as fallen, believed that the universe was evil and that bad things would always happen to me as a result. As a result, bad things kept happening to me. It’s only when I started believing that the universe is good that my life started to change for the better. The prayer time last night reminded me that though the universe might be fallen, God is mightier than the evil in the universe, that His peace will always triumph over evil, that no darkness can be darker than God’s light, that nothing can separate us from His love. (Romans 8 Bad things might happen, but God’s love is always there with us, helping us turn bad situations to good as we are more than conquerers in Christ. Now that I believe the opposite of what I used to believe. I believe the universe is good because God is the ultimate ruler of the universe (and not Satan) and if we just rest in his peace and not give in to worry or negative thoughts, then the universe will pour out its blessings on you. I have been through many difficult times but God has always been with me and helped me, so that really has helped me to really believe that nothing can separate me from His love.
Praise God for His peace. Peace is such a great gift, because if you have peace, then it doesn’t matter how bad your circumstances are. You can truly be happy no matter what happens to you.
