Do you ever “confine” God to do just the things you don’t want to do on your own? It’s a regular day, and we go about doing the average things we need to do. We don’t need God’s help when everything is so typical, so we may barely think about Him.
What are we letting control our hearts and minds? Is it our worries? Our past? Our situation? God says He has something better for us. He wants His peace to be the thing that drives our thoughts and emotions. In fact, He says His peace will guard them.
What have you already attained? As a follower of Jesus what is it you already have, already know?At the very least you know that Jesus has died for you. You believe in Him, and His death and resurrection has brought you forgiveness and eternal life. Are you living up to that?
How do we learn something really well? Isn’t it usually by going through something, by gaining wisdom through an experience? Although we can learn by listening or reading, if you really want something to be stamped on your heart and mind you have to experience it.
