My prayer for you on Election Day?
Peace. We all desire it. Nations pursue it. Families fight for it. Politicians fight over it. Political parties promise it. Our minds crave it: Peace.
I prayed this for you today.
Will there ever be peace on earth? Well, yes and no. See, peace is not a situation. Peace is not a political or military state. Peace is a state of mind.
One of the greatest promises God ever makes can be found in the book of Isaiah:
“You will keep in perfect peace all who trust in you,
all whose thoughts are fixed on you!” Isaiah 26:3 (NLT)
Regardless of the situation or the state of things, God promises to keep our minds at peace if our TRUST is in Him and our THOUGHTS are fixed on Him!
What a promise!
So if we want peace today:
Let’s not fix our thoughts on everything that’s wrong or could go wrong.
Let’s not fix our thoughts on the worst case scenario.
Let’s not fix our thoughts on fear, anger, or hate.
Let’s fix our thoughts on HIM.
Let’s place our trust in Him.
Let’s CHOOSE to believe that God is still in control.
It’s called FAITH.
If we can do that...peace on earth...is possible.
Not around us...but in us.
To God be the glory!
