Today my thoughts go to trusting God. God gave us a promise and it is activated by trust.
- Psalm 37:3 (NKJV) Trust (lean on, relay on and be confident) in the LORD, and do good; Dwell in the land, and feed on His faithfulness.
It is not enough just to believe in God.…YOU MUST BELIEVE GOD…His Word and applying it daily, we can enter a place of rest, where we are assured that everything is OK. Yes, as we TRUST God we will have peace of heart; mind, soul and spirit.
- Hebrews 4:11 Let us do our best to enter that place of rest. For anyone who disobeys God (doubt and unbelief), as the people of Israel did, will fall.
God is speaking to all believers who refuse to worry or have anxiety (doubt-unbelief) that they would enter a state of rest…a spiritual rest…God’s peace…the abiding place – is where His Presence is!
For in His Presence is ALL joy!
- John 14:27 “I am leaving you with a gift—peace of mind and heart. And the peace I give isn’t like the peace the world gives. So don’t be troubled or afraid.
The “ONE Mind-Set” only comes in true righteousness and holiness through living in Christ Jesus…
- Ephesians 4:22-24 (NKJV) that you put off, concerning your former conduct, the old man which grows corrupt according to the deceitful lusts, and be renewed in the spirit of your mind, (having a fresh mental and spiritual attitude) and that you put on the new man which was created according to God, in true righteousness and holiness.
Your Mind (thoughts) must be set on things of God-the Word. Yes…than and only then will we be in the right behavior, right standing (relationship) with our Lord and we will be ONE IN CHRIST. Is Your MIND-SET? ONE HEART-ONE MIND…abiding in the vine!
As always, love in Christ Jesus,
