You will keep in perfect peace him whose mind is steadfast, because he trusts in you. – Isaiah 26:3
For those of us in the United States there is much to lose sleep over if you allow yourself to. You know God is in control yet you still can't stop fretting over bank failure, government tyranny, war,and natural disasters,to name but a few. In order to have peace you have to stop focusing on bad stuff. It has to be intentional.
You have probably heard no amount of worrying will change things and that is so true. Think about worry for a moment. You stay up at night losing sleep and for what reason? Something you can't even control. People in the United States are concerned now about the November elections. Once again the outcome won't be changed by one ounce of your worry.Have you tried prayer? That should be a believers first option before all else. Your worrying does not do a thing but make you sick and make the devil happy. Make the devil mad and start praying instead then let it go.PRAYER: I choose peace Lord. I know tests will come to see how I am dealing with things but help me remain calm under all circumstances and give you the glory. In Jesus' name. Amen.
