Stepping Stones: Thoughts of Peace, Not Of Evil

Stepping Stones: Thoughts of Peace, Not Of Evil

Transformational Tip
Our Lord’s word can bring so much peace to believers. In Jeremiah we are told so clearly if we pray to Him He will listen. If we search for Him with all our heart we will find Him. But remember that it all begins with believing. As you get into God’s Word, you will find His amazing reliability in standing by His people when they believe and obey(when they don’t obey, He continues to pursue us and gives us many chances to obey). You also find amazing accuracy as it describes who we are, how and why we go astray, and what the curative process is for us in this lifetime and the everafter. No book, religion, or belief system is so accurate with as much depth as the HOLY BIBLE. It still amazes me
brain scans are now revealing the accuracy and truth of the Bible that God revealed through His humble servants 2000 – 3000 years ago. Why would you want to use anything else as your instruction book other the BIBLE (Best Instruction Book for Living Everyday or Best Instructions Before Leaving Earth). Keep in mind today the simple formula to a life that you are promised by God;
Believe > Receive > Become

Father God, I believe that You have thoughts of peace and not of evil for me. Thank You for the clarity of Your word. I believe You have plans for me and a special future and know You have given me hope. I know that when I call upon You and pray to You, You will listen. I know that when I search for You, I find You for You are always there for me. I know that You, and only You, have the power to bring me out of captivity. I thank You, my Father in heaven, for Your love and Your plans and the future I have in You. Thank You for Jesus, my Savior, for without Him, I am nothing; lost and alone. With love in His name I pray, AMEN.

The Truth
“For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope. Then you will call upon Me and go and pray to Me, and I will listen to you. And you will seek Me and find Me, when you search for Me with all your heart. I will be found by you, says the Lord, and I will bring you back from your captivity…”
Jeremiah 29:11
I will never forget your precepts, for by them you have given me life.
I am yours; save me, for I have sought your precepts.
The wicked lie in wait to destroy me, but I consider your testimonies.
I have seen a limit to all perfection, but your commandment is exceedingly broad.
Oh how I love your law! It is my meditation all the day.
Your commandment makes me wiser than my enemies, for it is ever with me.
I have more understanding than all my teachers, for your testimonies are my meditation.
I understand more than the aged, for I keep your precepts.
I hold back my feet from every evil way, in order to keep your word.
I do not turn aside from your rules, for you have taught me.
How sweet are your words to my taste, sweeter than honey to my mouth!
Through your precepts I get understanding; therefore I hate every false way.
Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path.
Psalm 119: 93-105
For the word of God is living and active, sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing to the division of soul and of spirit, of joints and of marrow, and discerning the thoughts and intentions of the heart.
Hebrews 4:12
