To receive the peace promised by God, you must change your stance from grasping and controlling to openness and trust. Big decision…. put your trust in yourself or God. Who has more command and power over the world; more knowledge of how life works and what the future holds. I mistakenly think I love me the most, know what is best for me, and am willing to sacrifice anything for my best interest, but God has proven His skills, power, and devotion to me every Christmas, Good Friday, Easter, and every other day. Does your track record match God’s? The only thing you can grasp and hold onto without weakening your soul is His hand.
I realize at this moment that I grasp for material things because it makes me feel safe. Help me know and understand that what I do with my body and mind can help or hurt what goes on in my soul. Help me take the steps required to achieve the “Mind of Christ”
For I am the Lord, your God, who takes hold of your right hand and says to you, “Do not fear; I will help you”
Have you an arm like God, and can you thunder with a voice like his?
Have this mind among yourselves, which is yours in Christ Jesus.
