Don’t Lose Your Peace of Mind Ноябрь 4, 2010

Posted by Lee Goodall in Today's Devotional.

‘You will keep him in perfect peace…’ Isaiah 26:3

We lose our peace of mind for four reasons: 1) We try to change the people in our lives. As you grow wiser you begin to realise that you can’t change other people, only God can! And He does, when you back off, and love them as they are. This doesn’t mean agreeing with everything they do. It means committing to love them regardless, claiming God’s promises on their behalf and allowing Him to deal with them His way, in His time and for His glory. The reason you’re stressed out may be because you keep trying to do something-about something you can’t do anything about! 2) We try to make things happen when it’s not the right time. ‘There is a time for everything…’ (Ecclesiastes 3:1 NIV). If you’ve raised children you know that one of their chief characteristics is impatience; they can’t wait for anything. God wants us to outgrow our childishness so He makes us wait, trust, and mature! 3) We get upset because we’re not progressing fast enough. You can slow down your spiritual growth through neglect, but ultimately, ‘…We all…are being changed…[by] the Spirit’ (2 Corinthians 3:18 NCV). So learn to enjoy your life while God works on your problems, for you’ll always have problems! 4) We push ourselves harder and harder. We do what we think God wants without consulting Him as to what He actually wants, when He wants it, or how He wants it done. As a result we wear ourselves out. What’s the solution? ‘You will keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is [focused] on You, because he trusts in You.’
