You will keep him in perfect peace whose mind is fixed on you.
HELLO! Thank you for stopping by.
Perfect peace. We all long for it. But for most of us, life is chaotic. We have so many choices, and we often don’t know what to do. We want to trust God and we long for the peace He gives. If this describes you or anyone you know, hope, challenge, and encouragement are offered here.
Why does trusting God feel so risky? Maybe it’s because even though we know God is perfect, we can’t see Him.
We are not alone. Trust problems began when Adam and Eve trusted the word of the serpent instead of the word of God (See Genesis 1-3). It is no different today.
It is possible to step into more trust in God. The key word is step. Whether God works in our lives the way we want, or whether He has a better idea (which He often does), we can have perfect peace when we fix our minds on God. One step at a time.
Worry. Turn it over to God. Take it back. Beat yourself up. Repent. Repeat. Does this cycle sound familiar? Are you looking for a way out? There is a solution. Worrying is not inevitable. It is possible to live a worry-less life, even in difficult times, but it takes practice.
If anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has gone. The new has come! (2 Corinthians 5:17 NIV)
He leads me by quiet waters (Psalm 23:2 NIV)
He refreshes my soul (Psalm 23:2 NIV)
Take my yoke upon you and learn from me. . . and you will find rest for your souls. (Matthew 11:28 NIV)
