Fortunately for me, I know where to seek advice when overwhelmed with my inner demons. I came across this verse this morning:
Isaiah 26:3 "You will keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on You, because he trusts in You."
That's exactly what I need...the peace that only God can give me. How can I have God's peace?
Peace is an inner sense of contentment and quietness, regardless of life's circumstances. It is the presence of joy in the midst of unhappiness. This kind of peace can not come from a pleasant event or something someone may do for us, but only comes from the presence of Holy Spirit in our lives. His peace is complete in anything we may face.
God's peace can be experience by:
1. Focusing on God: When we focus on our problem is seems bigger. We have to train ourselves to keep our focus on God and His work in our lives.
2. Trust Him: God sometimes uses tribulations to teach us and reveal Himself to us. God will never leave us or forsake us. His Word is full or promises and He will keep them.
3. Marinate in His Word: God's Word should be our most prized possession. God speaks to us through His Word and we have to spend time listening what He says. Just like the verse (above) I found this morning, God showed me how to get the peace I need to calm my inner turmoil.
I'm praying that you'll find God's peace in you daily lives.
Blessing to all...
