HOW TO GET PEACE OF MIND IN OUR DAILY LIVES
To get peace of mind every day, sounds difficult.
However,believe me it is possible.It is something I learned how to do.
I will like you to stop here and quickly read what it means to enter Gods rest.
It will be difficult to get peace of mind.
If you do not first enter Gods rest.Secondly, there is a process involved to achieve that.A lot of people, including christians,visit psychologist today.
They give them instructions on what to do to get peace of mind.
The bible however has made enough provisions for us christians to get peace of mind naturally.All we have to do is to follow the bibles instructions.
PRACTICAL WAYS TO GET PEACE OF MIND AND HAPPINESS AS A CHRISTIAN
After entering Gods peace,there are two practical ways to get peace of mind as a christian.
firstly,understand the ways of God.
Secondly,learn to hear,listen,and walk according to the instructions of the Holy Spirit.Your next question will probable be
“how do I know if the holy Spirit is speaking to me”?
The answer is you will know when you actually practice the act of listening to the Spirit.
For instance,how can you know the voice of your child,spouse ,sister or brother in a crowded room?
Most times even behind closed doors or on phone!
The answer is practice and familiarity.Practice listening more in prayer and talking less.
Listening to the Holy Spirit verses abound in the bible.Create time to study them.
If you do these things, gradually you will get peace of mind and happiness as a christian.
BIBLICAL EXAMPLE ON WHY YOU SHOULD GET PEACE OF MIND
The book of luke 8vs 22-26 is a story I want to use to illustrate why you should get peace of mind.
Notice that in luke 8 vs 22, Jesus said:
Now it came to pass on a certain day, that he went into a ship with his disciples: and he said unto them, Let us go over unto the other side of the lake. And they launched forth.
The instruction was for them to go across the lake to country of the Gadarenes.
However during the jorney to that place ,a storm arose.The disciples reacted as we would do.
Contrary to them,Jesus was sound asleep and at peace.!
Despite the storm,Luke 8 vs 26 shows that they reached there destination safely.
26 And they arrived at the country of the Gadarenes, which is over against Galilee.
Jesus had peace because he knew,that irrespective of the stormy sea,He will get to his destination.And that is why you should get peace of mind.
That is the ability to remain undisturbed .Because you have heard and believe Gods instructions to you.
