The God who brings peace will soon defeat Satan and give you power over him. The grace of our Lord Jesus be with you.
(Romans 16:20 NCV)


When you are sick in your body, filled with anxiety, or facing a serious challenge in your life, it’s hard to feel peaceful. However, as children of God, we are not limited to earthly emotions, but we can walk in peace, no matter how impossible the situation seems.

Jesus said in John 14:27, “Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.” If you are born again, the grace of Jesus is with you and you have God’s peace living inside of you.

Peace represents wholeness in every area—your health, family, finances, ministry, business—whatever it might be. Whatever you are lacking, the God of peace will make whole. Other translations of this week’s scripture say, “The God of peace will soon crush Satan under your feet.” Under your feet…Got it? He will give you power over satan and no longer will you be defeated by the enemy.

So today, whatever you are believing God for that satan has stolen, delayed or tried to destroy, know that help is on the way! The God of peace will soon take him out of the way, and you will be free!


Lord, I thank You for Your peace that is so far above what the world offers. I believe I receive Your promise today that You are giving me power over what the devil has done in my life (name a situation where you’ve been experiencing attack or setback). The devil is under my feet and I am victorious! In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
