How to Find Peace in His Presence

Woman in peace

When the disciples were in a horrible storm, they woke Jesus to ask, “Do You not care that we are perishing?” He simply commanded, “Peace,” and the sea became calm (Mark 4:38-39).

Are we at a place of worry and panic, thinking we’re going to perish? Or are we constant in our faith, knowing that with a single word He can deliver us and save us? In the midst of turmoil, we need to seek His presence, His Word, and His direction—for they come from no one else.

God is saying, “Come up here. Be in My presence, where all things are possible and I can see you through anything. I am with you and for you. My righteous right hand upholds you. I forgive you, protect you, shield you, provide for you, and heal you.”

How do we enter that realm? Psalm 24:3-4 says, Who may ascend into the hill of the Lord? Or who may stand in His holy place? He who has clean hands and a pure heart. When we ask Jesus to wash us clean, we can ascend with a pure heart to the hill of the Lord. And verse 5 promises, He shall receive blessing from the Lord.

So if we occupy ourselves in obedience to Him, we leave behind the concerns of this world

We have an incredible privilege to know God. When we enter into the new covenant of His body and blood, we can sense His presence. We have a new heart to love Him, we have a heart to love one another, and we have the heart to do His will. And what is His will? To preach the Gospel to every nation, tribe, and tongue.

So if we occupy ourselves in obedience to Him, we leave behind the concerns of this world and, as Ephesians 1:19 says, we can understand the exceeding greatness of His power toward us who believe.

God bless you!
