Protect Your Peace
You will keep in perfect peace all who trust in you, all whose thoughts are fixed on you!
I’m sure you’ve heard the saying, “Protect Your Peace.” It seems to be at the top of everybody’s priority list these days but as Believers we can’t manage this task on our own (John 15:5). He promises to give us Perfect Peace which is a Peace that surpasses all understanding (Phillippians 4:7). I think we can all agree that this is the type of peace that we want and need in our lives. It is ours to access but there are conditions: trust and focus. Sounds familiar, right? If you said yes, awesome! That lets me know that you hear me loud and clear sis! We must Trust in our Heavenly Father’s unfailing love and perfect plan for our lives. We also need to fix our thoughts on Him. He is our Peace. We will remain in a constant struggle to protect something that already belongs to us in Christ until we embrace the truth of Isaiah 26:3.
‘You have the ability to determine what you’ll think. At any time, you can refocus your mind to a new topic, task, or problem to solve instead of negative thinking that will steal your peace and/or cause you to venture into rebellion or sin. You have the ability to say, “I choose to trust God,” in any situation you face or thought you have.

I wanted to share this quote from Finding Peace a 10-day Bible Plan by Dr. Charles Stanley. I've completed the plan twice and I highly recommend it!
