Abiding Above Tension-Part 12
January 19, 2015
Philippians 4:7– “ and the peace of God, which surpasses all comprehension, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.”
Let not your heart be troubled. The Spirit of God will control your heart if you will let Him.
Isaiah 26:3– “The steadfast of mind You will keep in perfect peace, Because he trusts in You.”
My friend, when God says ‘perfect’, He means exactly that. He means perfect peace. You say,“Well, there is no perfect peace in this world.” Correct! What did Jesus say, He said, “I am not giving you a peace as the world give you...”
He is not giving you the world’s answers…something to sedate you, something to stroke your emotions and to change the state in which you feel at any given moment but it always comes back. His perfect peace is His perfect presence in you. Amen? When you became a child of God, God gave the Spirit to you without measure. You don’t have 97% of God, you have 100% of Mr. Perfect Peace living inside of you, so don’t forfeit it by not abiding and surrendering and walking in this or you are forfeiting what you have so therefore, you are not using what you have. We are to abide above tension by allowing the Spirit of God to soothe our hearts to keep our minds steadfast with Mr. Perfect Peace.
