Over the past eight months, our minds and hearts have been thrown into a whirlwind of chaos and confusion. We hear conflicting reports about government policies, health conditions, and finances. It is hard to know what to believe when these reports conflict. Now more than ever, friends and family may be on opposite sides of an issue. This type of struggle can cause our minds and hearts to cry out for peace.
Today’s scripture gives us a clear pathway to a peaceful heart, mind and life. Take your Bible and turn to Psalm 119: 161-168. Underline the phrases as we address each action we should take to achieve peace. The steps may be worded differently in the translation you are reading, but each will point to a well-defined route. You may see more steps than we will cover, so open your heart to what God may have for you.
If you feel unsettled and not at peace, review the steps laid out in Psalm 119: 161-168.
Spend more time studying the calm of God’s Word than scrutinizing the chaos of the world.
“May the peace of God, that surpasses all understanding,
keep your heart and mind in Christ Jesus.”
Philippians 4: 7
