Peace, A Mind Stayed on God

Sunday February 28, 2016

(There was a word given about not fearing when you face “a Red Sea” while trying to get into your “Promised Land.” Trust Him, walk in the anointing. The Blood of Jesus is before you. Put Him on the throne of your heart, so He can lead and direct you and bring you through.) (There was a miracle anointing service.) Texts: Isaiah 26:3 and Philippians 4:6-8. God will keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on Him, because that person trusts in God. If you are not in perfect peace, your mind is not stayed on God. Peace is more than a cessation of war. Peace is goodness in your life. God’s plan is for you to have peace. The safest place to be is in the will of God. If you lose your peace, it is a sign that things are not okay. What does it mean to have your mind stayed on Him? It is like jamming a chair under a doorknob, so that the door cannot be moved. Peace is when you do not waver, ever! You will encounter things. Look at them with the lenses of a mind stayed on Him. When you are distracted, look at the distractions through the lens of God. Recognize who you are in Christ. Do not be worried and care-filled. Would it help to worry? BUT, in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. It is an opportunity for prayer and praise. It is not enough to just rebuke and resist the devil and his thoughts. You must replace those thoughts with prayer, praise, and the Word. Fill your house with praise. The peace of God which surpasses all understanding will guard, keep, and garrison your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. Deal with fear quickly, or it will grow. Praise the Lord. Whatever you are dealing with, think on those things that are true, honest, just, pure, lovely, of good report, virtue, and praiseworthy. Filter your mind so certain thoughts do not enter your mind. Even if it is true, is it honest? Is it true, honest, and just…? Do we keep our minds on Him? What is negative may be your imagination. Take every thought captive and make it come into obedience to Christ Jesus (2 Corinthians 10:4, 5). Make God’s Word your filter. God is a rewarder of the those who diligently seek Him. Do not waste your time on assumptions. Imagine the victory and God’s Word. How are you using your imagination? Fill your mind with the Word.
