“You will keep in perfect Him whose mind is steadfast, because He trusts in you.” – Isaiah 26:3
Your thoughts are your servant. Your thoughts influence your deeds because what you think and believe is the result of your circumstances. It is therefore imperative to discipline your thoughts in order to have a positive and constructive disposition towards life.
The greatest force in a healthy and emotional life is allowing the Holy Spirit to take control of your thoughts. You can, through the strength that Christ grants you, control your thoughts, and in doing so, experience the peace of God. There will be moments of disruption when evil thoughts will try to re-establish themselves, but if you focus on God and give Him control, nothing will destroy your peace.
You are my only Savior. Help me to trust in God as my shield against the Evil One. Amen.
