Do You Live In Peace?
Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee. – Isaiah 26:3
The Lord will keep you in perfect peace if you keep your mind stayed on Him.
Do you keep your mind constantly on God? When you have a problem arise in your life, do you automatically think "What does the Word say about this"?
Most people have too much of the world’s thinking in them. So much so that when a problem arises, they think the world’s solution first. Then only after they calm down, do they think about what God says about that situation.
The world’s solution needs to be the last thing on your mind. When you focus on their solution, you leave God out of the equation. You sidestep your miracle in favor of a solution you can see rather than one you have to believe for.
Instead of focusing your mind on the world, focus your mind on God and His Word. Remind yourself that your blessing, all that Jesus died to give you, is not based on you and your performance. It is based on Jesus and His shed blood.
Whatever the Bible promises, you can have. Whatever the Bible says you are, you are. Whatever it says you can do, you can do. Not based on your ability. Not based on your talent. Not based on your performance.
You cannot earn anything from God. You are just not that good. Neither am I or anyone else in this world.
Keep focused on Jesus and what He did for you at the Cross. As you focus on Jesus, God will keep you in perfect peace. 🙂
