“Perfect Peace in the midst of chaos; Shalom Shalom, DOUBLE for your trouble!”
I heard “Rescue from Turmoil” and I saw a Believer surrounded with “turmoil” like a whirlwind encompassing them, like the stormy waters of a sea swirling around them and trying to pull them under.
They thought that they were alone in this “state of chaos” but, no, Jesus was right with them in the midst of it all.
The Prince of Peace was ruling in the midst of chaos. His Peace was guarding them from any destruction and the winds of chaos bowed to the Encompassing Winds of the Spirit, God’s Everlasting Arms of Shalom Peace.
“Beloved. Do not weep. Your Rescuer has come. Even in the midst of turmoil, when the enemy confronts you with the snares of death, I AM He who draws you out of deep waters.
When the torrents of chaos try to overwhelm you or the cords of pain and sorrow attempt to entangle you, The LORD of Peace Himself is with you to rescue you.
I AM the Peace in the midst of the storm. I AM your Deliverer. I will shut the mouth of the enemy. I will turn off all the ‘noise’ of the evil one. I rebuke the devourer for your sake.
Peace, be still, My Child and know that I AM your God. Cling to your Savior and keep your eyes upon Me. I have rescued you from your powerful enemies who were too strong for you.
I defeated chaos at the Cross so that you could possess My Peace in your body and soul. I rose from the dead so that you could possess My overcoming Resurrection POWER.
Come out of agreement with words of fear and death and come into agreement with My Words of Life. The chaos around you shall subside and My Peace shall reign.
You shall reign in this life because of My Grace. I delight in you, My Child. My Supernatural Peace I give to you. I do not give to you as the world gives.
Do not let your heart be troubled and do not be afraid. I Myself am your Shalom Peace. I AM surrounding you with songs of deliverance.
Fear not, Beloved. The God of Perfect Peace reigns! Return to your stronghold, O prisoners of Hope; even today I declare that I will restore to you double.”

2 Samuel 22:2 (Notice the TWOS)
“He said,”“The Lord is my rock and my fortress and my deliverer, my God, my rock, in whom I take refuge, my shield, and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold and my refuge, my savior; you save me from violence.
I call upon the Lord, who is worthy to be praised, and I am saved from my enemies.
“For the waves of death encompassed me, the torrents of destruction assailed me; the cords of Sheol entangled me; the snares of death confronted me.
In my distress I called upon the Lord; to my God I called. From his temple he heard my voice, and my cry came to his ears.
Then the earth reeled and rocked; the foundations of the heavens trembled and quaked, because he was angry. Smoke went up from His nostrils, and devouring fire from His mouth; glowing coals flamed forth from Him.
He bowed the heavens and came down; thick darkness was under His feet. He rode on a cherub and flew; He was seen on the wings of the wind. He made darkness around him His canopy, thick clouds, a gathering of water.
Out of the brightness before him coals of fire flamed forth. The LORD thundered from heaven,
and the Most High uttered his voice. And He sent out arrows and scattered them; lightning, and routed them.” 2 Samuel 22:2.
