His Perfect Peace

Today : His Perfect Peace

“You will keep in perfect peace all who trust in you, all whose thoughts are fixed on you!” Isaiah 26:3 (NLT)

What do you think about? Where do you fix your thoughts? God expects us to consider what we think and judge it according to His word. Trouble comes into our life and we begin to fear. When it does we have a choice to make. Will we remain in fear? Will we let it escalate into panic? Or will we obey today’s passage and trust in God, fixing our thoughts on Him? When we do, He promises us peace. Not just any peace, His perfect peace. It is the same way with anger, jealously, doubt and a hundred other thoughts that come into our life everyday. Today, when negative thoughts come to your mind begin a new habit. Trade them in for peace. How? By giving the thoughts to God and then choose to trust in Him by fixing your thoughts on His love for you.

Father, help me trade my negative thinking for your perfect peace. Today, help me to fix all my thoughts on you.

I have a deep peace
God has promised to give you peace if you trust in Him and keep focused on Him. See yourself in a quiet safe place. Relax and focus on the serenity. Listen to the various sounds. See the bright colors. Smell the atmosphere. As you are more present in your quiet place, consider where God is. Get a sense of God and focus on Him. Watch and listen. See God and consider Him. Consider His love, His grace and His power. Feel your heart filling with peace. Keep your self focused on God and let the peace fill you.
