Serenity, Peace of Mind




Thought for the Day

One of the best things about Jesus Christ and His church is the peace of mind and serenity that is given. In our fleshly life before Jesus, we had no peace or calm. We had the opposite. We had turmoil and quiet desperation. Living in the flesh (sin) is a cause for mental suffering and doubt. We so often become lonely, feel insecure, and simply incapable of dealing with life in a wholesome way. In Jesus Christ, we achieve peace of mind and confidence. Take Him by the hand and walk through all the challenges of life with Him. We also have the security of Heaver for eternity.


Meditation

Look for Jesus’ leading in all your relationships. Whatever interaction you have with others, He will guide you. Let Him! Rejoice that Jesus can protect you! He keeps you from temptations and failure. Rely on His strength and knowledge of the future. All your future situations are known by Him. Move confidently forward with His guidance. Do not doubt, life will be better for you. Do not fear, you are safe in His hands.


Reflection

Proverbs 3.5-6 Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight. (NIV)


We are taught from our earliest years to figure things out. God gave us amazing brains to create, calculate, invent, build, and so much more. He told us to make wise plans for the day and for the future. Yet, we must submit to His control. Things do not always go the way we wanted. How do we deal with detours? Yes, every time our plans go awry, we can know that Jesus is taking us in another direction. Sometimes it is a short momentary detour. At other times it is a complete change in direction. We do not know the future or the plans and interferences of others. Jesus does know and He will guide us through these complications. He also may know a better plan and He guides us to His better plan. Never be angry or fret over interference and problems. Jesus knows the best path forward.
