There are many reasons to have a troubled mind, but only one way to find the peace of mind that we seek, and that is calling on the Name of Jesus.
Too often we seek after a quick fix for our situations, when we could just turn it over to the Lord and trust him to give us assurance that all is well. You may still be traveling down a path that has you getting trapped in the mire of past regrets, illness, or financial need, but all I can say for you, today, is Jesus.
He is the author and the finisher of our faith. there isn’t any hurt so great, that he can’t step in and bring his comfort. We can ask, “Where is the balm of Gilead?’ and know that everything we need will be found in him.
Why is it that we grope at the doors of our lives as blind people when all is require of us to get to the other side of our door is to turn the doorknob, and walk through?
We have stood at the door and longed for change in our lives for sometimes decades, yet, we already have the answer in our hand. In order to know what to do, we have to search for it. The irony of it all is we have had our answer in our possession since before the circumstance came into our lives; yet we have neglected to act on it.
Oh, sure the Lord keeps whispering to us in his still small voice, that if we will seek him he will turn that situation around for us, but before God will release our answer, we must use our faith and learn how to obtain it. You will find the peace of mind that you seek by reading the word, and becoming doers of the word.
Until we learn to put our lives into the Lord’s hands and then obey this commandments, our deliverance will remain a secret to us, but the blessed thing is that the Lord desires to tell us his secrets.
Can he trust us enough to share them, or are we still too busy to listen?
We are broken, but thankfully the Lord promises to be our strength when we are weak.This song by IBC discusses that relationship. The Lord will meet you where you are and for that I am truly grateful.
“Have not I commanded thee? Be strong and of good courage; be not afraid, neither be dismayed; for the Lord thy God is with thee whithersoever thou goest” (Joshua 1:9).
