“Don’t let your hearts be troubled. Trust in God, and trust also in me. – John 14:1 (NLT)
A while ago, I noticed that I was really becoming afraid. I had started watching a TV show that caused me to have a lot of fear. I wasn’t sleeping well at night and was very upset. After a while, I decided to stop watching that show. After a few days, I realized I was no longer as afraid.
Today’s Truth: You Choose Your Level of Peace By Your Focus
The truth is that you can choose your level of peace often by what you focus on. If your focus is all the bad things happening in the world, you will often find that you have little peace. However, if instead, you change your focus to be on Jesus, on the promises found in God’s word you’ll begin to see that you’re less afraid and more willing to do the things God is calling you to do.
So today choose to practice peace by making your focus God’s word and tuning out things that cause you to not be at peace. As you do, you’ll see that your level of peace will increase and fear will fade.
