It’s Not How You Fight, But How You Rest ~ Wanda Alger
If it’s the God of PEACE that will soon crush Satan under our feet, why are we warring so much? Romans 16:20 suggests that the power within us to crush every enemy and every storm in our life is PEACE, not warfare. Are we carriers of this Peace or constantly engaging in battles that never change anything?
We have embraced a belief system that puts US at the center of the outcome through our spiritual pursuits, our “anointing” – even our prayers, rather than resting in The One who has the power to still every storm and displace every evil. Jesus rebuked the storm with only three words – PEACE, BE STILL (Mark 4:39). There was no striving or threatening; simply a statement of fact. He knew peace because He IS peace. The Prince of Peace is within us and we have this same power to cause storms and chaos to CEASE and DESIST!
The only way we can speak this peace is to live from it. Jesus was already SLEEPING THROUGH THE STORM when He spoke the word of peace. Perhaps this is how we can know when we have this latent power at work within us – when we can sleep through the storms. Jesus knew who He was and who His Father was. He had already settled the truth that no power could stop Him from accomplishing His Father’s purposes. We, too, must embrace this truth and not let the storms and chaos around us deter us or steal our peace. When we can learn to rest in the midst of chaos because we know and walk with the Prince of Peace, we can change the atmosphere around us.

The Lord is calling us to recognize His Presence and His peace and know the power at work within us. The enemy wants to engage us in a battle that has already been won. The Lord would have us sleep with Him through the storms so that we can speak a supernatural peace into the atmosphere that will stop wars, calm fears, and disarm the enemy.
It’s not how you fight your battles that will determine the outcome, but how you rest in the midst of them.
A TURNAROUND FOR YOU..
A word by Dana Jarvis
I decree you are making the spiritual journey from the bondage of Egypt into your promised land of destiny. I know you have grown weary. Do not let the murmurings and complaining attitudes rule you. It causes the faith to waiver! Your focus is upon the cup of bitter waters that you are currently drinking from.
Rest assured that your God is making these bitter waters sweet!
You shall taste and see that the Lord is good! You are going to see such extravagance in your daily life. He is delivering much into your hands so reach up and take hold. Just as he was with you before, he is with you now. You are going to drink deep of the Living Waters. The bitter waters of life have tried to steal all joy.
However I hear the Lord say, “It is done, I am the Lord who heals you. I am the Lord who will restore you. I am the Lord who will provide your every need. I am the One that is making the bitter waters sweet!”
I feel so strongly that God is removing your cup of bitter waters you have had to drink for so long. He is causing a turnaround for you in a situation that you desperately need him to move. I am speaking to several and know this word is for you. Even as the Lord led Moses and the children of Israel from their bondage at the Red Sea, it still took one step of faith. One step of faith is all it takes to cause a release from all of this. Take a moment and sow into good ground by giving into Spirit Fuel. For just a contribution of $25, $50, or even $100 or more given into Spirit Fuel is an active step and good ground on which to sow. It is a powerful ministry reaching the world for Christ. As you sow that offering, it is that act of faith that will cause the Red Sea where you are standing to part in your life. The bitter cup will be removed and the sweetness of the Lord shall begin to flow!
