God is always with us. We may not always be aware, but He is always here watching us and waiting for us to call upon Him when we are in trouble. Peace comes when we remember His presence on a regular basis. Isa. 26:3 says, “You will keep in perfect peace all who trust in you, all whose thoughts are fixed on you!”
This is the key. Keeping our thoughts fixed on God. Thinking things like: “What would He do in this situation?” or “Since God is with me I am not afraid.” If we acknowledge Him in all we do and before any decision we make, peace will always be with us.
Hebrews 12:1-2 tells us to fix our eyes on Jesus and follow his example to run the race with endurance.
Remember, God is with us. Remember, God is our peace. Remember, God is our guide. Remember, God is watching over us and will help us in times of trouble. This kind of thinking will keep you in perfect peace.
DON’T WORRY, PRAY
Philippians 4: 6-7 NLT says “Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done. Then you will experience God’s peace, which exceeds anything we can understand. His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus.”
Once we have our mind and thoughts fixed on God, we can keep the conversation going with Him all throughout the day. Sure, it is important to have our time with God in the morning to start the day. Many of us have a morning ‘quiet time’ devoted to God and reading and/or praying. But He wants us to include Him in everything we do. When stress arises during the day, ask for help. When you get that promotion, thank Him. When we feel joyful or happy about what’s happening, share it with Him.
Don’t worry, God is here. Don’t worry, God has your back. Don’t worry, take all your cares to Jesus. He will take all your burdens and help you carry them.
