Perfect Peace – Just Keep Your Mind Stayed On God!
God wants us to have His perfect peace!
But how do we get it? The Bible, which is God’s Holy Word, has the answer.
Him will I keep in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on Me. – Isaiah 26:3″
God will keep us in His perfect peace, but with one condition:
If we keep our minds stayed (or focused) on Him and upon His will for our lives. How do we stay our minds on God?
- praying to Him
- reading His Word
- worshiping Him
- having fellowship with other believers – Hebrews 10:25 tells us not to skip that!
- being careful of what we watch on television, because we need to know what is good and what isn’t. I like to ask myself if Jesus would be pleased with what I am watching, but remember that I’m a work in progress in this area.
The enemy would love nothing more than to steer our minds away from God. The Bible says in John 10:10:
the enemy comes to steal, kill, and to destroy. I have come that they might have life, and have it more abundantly….”
In other words, he wants us to focus on worldly stuff, rather than on Jesus, because He knows how powerful Jesus is!
Let me ask you guys a question – what are you focusing on right now? Make sure God is in that focus, and if He’s not, repent and make an immediate change.
God wants us to have His perfect peace, but it requires some effort by us, so let’s make sure to do our part – amen? Amen!
Father, I speak Your perfect peace into every person that reads this post – may they be blessed and may they prosper and be in good health. Even as their souls would prosper.
In Jesus’ mighty name, I pray….
Be at peace today!
