Isaiah 25:1-28:15 / Galatians 3:15-29 / Psalm 61:1-8 / Proverbs 23:17-18
“You will keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on You, because he trusts You.”
God promises that if we continue to focus (stay) our minds on Him and trust Him, His faithfulness, power, goodness and love for us, we will walk in perfect peace. So, if we aren’t feeling peaceful, let’s investigate what’s going on (in our hearts and minds) starting with these two questions:
1. LORD, IS MY MIND STAYED ON YOU?
Are my thoughts racing around? Are my eyes wandering? Am I on an emotional rollercoaster? OR, am I determining that no matter what my circumstances may be to look to You NOT at the craziness around me?
God promises that as we keep our eyes on Him, regardless of the noise that surrounds us He will show us what to do - AWESOME truth to stand on!!
2. LORD, DO I TRUST YOU?
There will always be things we don’t understand and new chapters in our lives we can’t possibly predict. We really only have two choices: allow ourselves to be overcome with worry and fear trying to “make” things happen on their own, OR simply choose to TRUST the GOD OF THE UNIVERSE – He is GOOD, He loves us and wants us to experience ABUNDANT LIFE! We can confidently place our trust in God because HE IS 100% TRUSTWORTHY!
Just taking the time to think about this ROCK SOLID TRUTH brings peace!
