Today I was in prayer, and have been over the shootings that happened this past weekend. I have been feeling what I can only describe as anxiety and worry. I do not suffer from anxiety, to be clear. I believe that [what] I am feeling [is] in the spiritual realm. This morning in prayer I thought of Mark 4 when Jesus calms the storm and says,” peace, be still.” I felt to pray that into the atmosphere–I am speaking directly to the spiritual storm that’s causing fear, panic, & anxiety.
Today I was running errands in town when I received a prayer request for our church prayer group, that there was a possible shooting situation at an HEB [store] in San Antonio. That is my city. I was walking into a Wal-Mart as I received this message. The Lord brought this scripture to my mind from Matthew 10, I believe, [and] also Luke 10:5-7. Jesus is sending his disciples out and he says, “whenever you enter a place, say peace to this house, if they welcome you, let your peace rest upon it.” I felt God was telling me/us, believers “You carry the peace of God just like the disciples did. When you go out, speak and release the peace of God wherever you’re at.” So that’s what I did.
I had a choice walking into Walmart, be fearful, or stand in the authority given to me. San Antonio Texas is my city, Texas is my state, I choose to walk in the authority given to me by Jesus. So, I share this to encourage my brothers and sisters in Christ. Do not bow to fear or manipulation. Do not partner with fear, anxiety or anything that would make you doubt what God has already promised us for our cities, and for our nation. Go in the name of Jesus and release the peace of God wherever you go.
