Truth Tuesday – Prescription for Peace of Mind

by Kathy


Perfect peaceWhen we face difficulties, or simply have a need to make a decision and are torn with which direction to take, it can be tempting to get carried away with focusing on the difficulties, or the decisions needed.  Before you know it, your focus is completely on the need to fix your situation, and your heart gets restless and unsettled.  When I have moments like these, one thing is noticeably missing in my thought pattern – peace of mind!

In reading Isaiah 26:3, I notice that there are two prescriptions we must follow to have peace of mind in our current circumstances:

1.  We must fix our minds on God.

2.  We must trust God.

First, we must fix our minds on God, on His promises, and on the truths of His character, regardless of how our hearts and emotions are making us feel. We can find these promises and truths by reading God’s Word.  As we read God’s Word, we must meditate on it, memorize Scripture, and discipline our thought patterns to agree and rest upon the truths revealed in God’s Word.

Secondly, we must trust God.  This means that we need to have complete and humble confidence in God, relying on Him to work things out in accordance with His good and perfect plan for our lives.  When we are trusting,  we don’t give into despair or fear because we are resting in the fact that God is in complete control.

When we choose to obey these two prescriptions, God blesses our obedience with peace! God will give us an inner sense of contentment and quietness regardless of our circumstances.

If you are not experiencing peace in your current situation, ask yourself what prescription for peace you are not living out at this time.

Wishing you grace full week of calm and perfect peace as you fix your minds on the Lord and trust Him!
