Perfect Peace

“You will keep him in perfect peace, Whose mind is stayed on You, Because he trusts in You.” – Isa. 26:3

We all want peace. What about perfect peace?

Perfect peace comes only from God and knowing His Son, Jesus.

God is able and willing to keep you in this divine calm.

It comes only to the one who keeps their mind stayed on God. Of course, that’s easier to do when you trust Him.

Trust God.

Stay your mind on Him.

And God will keep you in His perfect peace.

Ask More, Tell Less

James 1 19

Ask more, tell less. This was some profound advice I was given by a great friend, Pastor Cyril.

“So then, my beloved brethren, let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath,” – James 1:19 (also see: Prov. 10:19, 17:27, 29:20 and others)

Let us open our ears & our hearts more than our mouths! How can we learn anything about anyone if we are always talking? The biggest part of my job is just listening, remaining quiet, and letting the other person just speak. Simple, but so difficult, isn’t it? What better way is there to show that you care?

Here’s your homework for the weekend: Zip it.
