Seeking Inner Peace?

 

(John 14:27) “I am leaving you at peace. I am giving you my own peace. I am not giving it to you as the world gives. So don’t let your hearts be troubled, and don’t be afraid.”

(Isaiah 26:3) “You will keep perfectly peaceful the one whose mind remains focused on you, because he remains in you.”

(Isaiah 48:18) “Now if only you had paid attention to my commandments! Then your peace would have been like a river, and your success like the waves of the sea.”

 

 

We all love to sit by the seashore on a calm evening sunset, or next to the running waters of a creek and feel that peace when time seems to stop. Unfortunately, we cannot sit there all day long and we have to eventually return to our frantic and stressful life. Actually, there is a name given to the depression or struggle one suffers when they have to return to their normal routine after a vacation. It’s called post-vocation syndrome. I guess no one likes Mondays.

This is not so with the peace that comes from God. Christ said that part of what He was leaving behind with us was HIS Peace, not the peace of nature or a circumstantial one, but a peace that goes beyond our understanding. It is the peace that will make you stand still in the middle of the storm and help you to make the right decisions while others panic in fear. A peace that lets you focus on eternal things, instead of losing sleep over things that might be gone the next morning like, material possessions, relationships, jobs, finances, and even your life.

The key to enjoying the Peace Christ offers us is not only to BE in Him but to REMAIN in Him. You can see how this works when you compare how your mind is when inside the church with your family and when you are at home. We need to learn to take that same sense of peace and focus from the church to our homes.

The moment we focus our eyes on the temporary things of the world, we lose that supernatural peace. It all happens in the mind, and it will submit to whatever or whoever we start to focus on. That is why it is so important to fill our minds with God’s promises on a daily basis so that no lies of Satan can enter.

It´s interesting how God links our prosperity with peace of mind. He says that if we obeyed His commandments our peace would be calm like a river and our prosperity roaring like the sea. It makes sense as in order to achieve anything you want to do in life, you need peace of mind. One cannot focus on their goals or the great things God has promised us if we are constantly challenged by everything and everyone around us.

 

 

Your mind is limited in how much it can focus on at one time. It’s either going to be God’s promises or the lies of Satan, it’s entirely up to you.

 

 

Prayers

• Heavenly Father, You are the Lord who knows how to deliver the godly out of temptations. He who knows to reserve the unjust under punishment for the day of judgment. God who is greater than our heart, and knows all things.
• Thank You for making available to us a peace that goes beyond our understanding.
• Thank You that Your peace is eternal and is not based on the circumstances we face.
• Forgive us for not paying attention to Your commandments.
• We reject right now all spirits we have invited into our lives by trying to experience peace through mediation, Spiritism, and the occult.
• We declare that we will have peace like a river and prosperity like the ocean because we chose to walk in Your ways.

• We ask in Jesus’ Mighty name. Amen
