I wrote about peace yesterday, about peace that we could have even in the storm.
I just briefly mentioned the verse in Isaiah that spoke in the same way as the picture I saw.
This is an important verse, giving us a very valuable life lesson.
Once again we see that the direction of our life goes in the way of our thoughts.
If we focus on issues and problems and think of them we are led towards strife and stress.
If we focus on the Lord (or as the Word says keep our mind stayed upon him in Isaiah 26 v 3) we are led towards peace.
We go in the direction of our thoughts.
This is why it is so important to think about the Lord at all times.
We should keep our mind on Him, on Scriptures, on His goodness and not allow our mind to dwell on the negative things in life.
You may be thinking, “but my life is terrible and I have so many struggles”.
That may be true, but if you are a believer you have been forgiven and reconciled, saved and made righteous.
You can focus on these things; focus on what God has done for you and to you as a gift of grace through faith.
It is your choice what you focus on, and in a true sense it is therefore your choice to stay in stress and anxiety or move into peace.
Speak this out today…..”Thank you Lord that you have provided me with a way to live my life in perfect peace”
Isaiah 26 v 3…..Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusted in thee
