Hold on to Your Peace
Do you ever lose your peace? I do. Is that God's best for me? No. God instructs us to hold on to our peace. The LORD shall fight for you, and ye shall hold your peace. Exodus 14:14 Almost on a daily basis, things happen that have the potential to upset us. If we do not take control of our minds and emotions when these things occur, we will lose our peace. How do we take control of our minds (thoughts) and emotions? 1) Pray - Ask God to help you control your thoughts and emotions. 2) Speak out loud to yourself and Satan. For example, if someone is pushing an opinion on you, speak to yourself and Satan that you are in charge of yourself and they are only expressing an opinion of theirs which is separate from you. You are in charge of your own life, not other people. This is how we take thoughts captive, by speaking the truth. 3) Find scripture to lean on. The scripture above is wonderful for helping to maintain your peace. Read it again. The Lord will fight for you. Let God fight your battles while you maintain your peace. Life
will be so much better and peaceful!
