Confidence & Trust = Perfect Peace

Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee.  Isaiah 26:3

As you purpose to keep your mind focused on God and His Word you will live in Peace. This is possible because your mind will be thinking the thoughts and words of God and not what it sees or feels in the natural realm. We can have confidence and trust in God and His Word in our everyday lives!

Today's Thought: How do you walk in peace?

The Peace of God

And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.  Philippians 4:7

Allow God’s peace to rule in your heart and life. The Peace of God in your heart may not make sense to your brain. As you develop a sensitivity to God’s peace and start walking in that peace He will guide you and keep you from making mistakes. 

Today's Thought: Think of a time God directed you to do something and you walked in peace knowing His plan for you was good, how did that feel?

Complete Peace!

Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you.  Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.  John 14:27

Jesus lived in complete peace while on this earth. He was not afraid or distressed about any earthly situation…and Jesus told this verse to the disciples right before he went to the cross. He was facing death and still had complete peace! Jesus has given you His peace.  You don’t need to worry or be afraid. Have Confidence in Jesus and receive the peace He has provided for you.

Today's Thought: What scriptures remind you of God's peace and help you have confidence in His plan for your life?

What Should I Do?

And let the peace of God rule in your hearts… Colossians 3:15

Have you been praying that God will show you whether something you want to do is all right with Him or not?  Let the peace of God be your guide.  The Holy Spirit in you will give you a subtle sense of uneasiness or a subtle sense of peace.  Listen closely to that inward voice, it will act as an umpire for your every question.  

Today's Thought: Think of a time you heard God's voice and had peace about a situation, how did that make you feel?

In Jesus’ Name, Amen

And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son.  If ye shall ask any thing in my name, I will do it.  John 14:13-14

“In Jesus’ Name.”  It’s more than something we say at the end of a prayer.  When you pray in the Name of Jesus, your prayers are presented to the Father on the credit of all that Jesus has already done.  Jesus on the cross has made a way for us to have eternal life (relationship with God), healing, help, & provision in all areas!  When we ask in the Name of Jesus, we understand that it is because of what Jesus has accomplished for us and not what we can do on our own merit. It Glorifies God when we, as God’s children, receive what His Son paid for.

Today's Thought: What have you asked for in Jesus' Name and received?

Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.  Acts 4:12

Jesus’ name is: Salvation.  This is more than just the saving of your soul. This word Salvation is translated from the Greek Word SOZO. This word means to save, deliver, protect, provide for and heal. It is encompassing to every part of us Spirit, Soul and Body. There is NO other name under heaven that has this power and NO other name can save, deliver, protect, provide for and heal you.  Jesus came so you can have the God kind of life now and through eternity!

Today's Thought: What does Salvation mean to you?
