KEY SCRIPTURE: Philippians 4:6 ” Be careful for nothing; but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.”
Peace of mind is a very indispensable virtue for every human being. Unfortunately, most people don’t have it.
God created men to have peace, through fellowship with the Him. Men lost this peace when they broke fellowship with the Lord God (Gen.3:24). Most people keep searching for peace, yet, in the wrong places. Some go for pleasure yet they are woefully deceived. To some people, if they could get enough money all their troubles will cease. Well none of them have found true satisfaction in money. The truth is, nothing physical can give man the peace of mind he desires.
What is peace? Peace is to be one with yourself through your relationship with our heavenly father, through our Lord Jesus Christ. The book of Romans 5:1 put it this way”. Therefore, being justified by faith we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus. Peace is an inner tranquility or stability irrespective of what may be happening around. God’s word is the main source of real peace. Some people try to create a mechanical peace through yoga and other practices. (Yoga is a Hindu spiritual and ascetic discipline, a part of which, includes breath control, simple meditation and the adoption of specific bodily postures. This is widely practiced for health and relaxation.)”.
These things attempt to make people feel relaxed yet it does not give true peace Jesus is the prince of peace (Isaiah 9:6). He is the only one who can give men real peace. Peace is a power that possesses the soul of a man. This power is called the peace of God (Phil 4:7) It is the word of God that builds faith in God for a man to receive this power called the peace of God.
Every state of worry, anxiety and mental tension are all signs of the lack of the control of the word of God in the heart of a man. Remember that faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God. Romans 10:17. Give attention to the reading studying, and meditation on God’s word. It is not just ordinary words that you are receiving, but life from the Spirit of God.
Heavenly Father you are the foundation of life, for all virtues proceed from you. I pray for the many people who have forsaken you, to look for peace else where to turn to you, through our Lord Jesus.
