If we rejoice in the Lord always and turn all our issues over to God thankfully as Philippians 4:4-8 tells us we would subtract all the negative things from our lives, then we will be stressless, worry-free and less depressed. As a matter of fact, if we trust God and His word, obey them and apply them to our daily living we will not be in half the problems we find ourselves in. Even though we change and seasons change, God remains the same. The Lord wants us as believers to portray Jesus’ love, kindness and gentleness because He is coming back.
God does not want His children to be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to Him, and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. The only person that can give us peace of mind, body, soul and spirit is God. And the only way to get it, as Job 22:21 tells us, is to acquaint ourselves with Him in order to be at peace. Then Psalm 29:11 says that the Lord will bless His people with peace, which means if you are not at peace, you are simply not His. Then Isaiah 26:3 tells us that, “He will keep us in perfect peace…” all we have to do to get it is keep our mind on Him. David says in Psalm 119:97, God’s law is his meditation. Meditation on God’s word is medication for peace. (Psalm 1:2; 19:14; 77:12; 107:43; 119:97)
Then in verse 8 of Philippians 4, God tells us what He wants us to meditate on: truthful things, noble, just, pure, lovely, things of good report, and praiseworthy things that are excellent. Then you will be at peace. These are the things God wants us to practice so His peace can be with us.
God’s peace can flow to and through every heart and mind. But, if you don’t receive Him through Christ Jesus and if you don’t believe in God or His beloved Son, then how can you expect to live with God’s peace? The Salvation Prayer page above shares some steps of how you can lead someone to Christ. There is also a salvation prayer in which you can pray to receive Christ.
Now may the Lord of peace Himself give you peace always in every way. (2 Thessalonians 3:16)
All glory, honor, praise and thanks go to God for using me to deliver this message. I pray that He will give all who read this message the spiritual gifts necessary to comprehend and act upon His word. I exercise my power and authority in the name of Jesus to bind every tactic of the enemy that will try to stop, hinder, or prevent this word from reaching its intended people.
