WEEK 14: Inner Peace: How to Find it and Keep It

‘Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things. Whatever you have learned or received or heard from me, or seen in me—put it into practice. And the God of peace will be with you. ‘ Philippians 4:8-9

We are a product of our thought life—our emotions flow from our thought life. What we allow to enter our mind is the most important decision we make.

Top Keys to Think On

  • Is it true or a lie?
  • Does this bring honor or dishonor?
  • Is this right or wrong?
  • Will this purify or contaminate?
  • Will this renew or harden?

Are you allowing the right things in your mind bring you peace? Is there a lie you have been thinking on that you need to replace with a truth?

Allow the God of Peace be with you, “and the God of Peace will be with you.”

“Even a fool, when he holdeth his peace, is counted wise: and he that shutteth his lips is esteemed a man of understanding.”
‭‭Proverbs‬ ‭17:28‬ ‭KJV‬‬
It can be hard to bite your tongue when upset at something or someone. One thing I have tried to remember is, am I getting onto someone to make me feel better, or am I doing it to help that person. I have bit my tongue on occasion and have been so glad that I did later, because GOD had plans for me with that person.

Peace 15
I believe it’s easier for us to fall into the trap of stinking thinking. We all do it at times, and before long, if we leave our stinking thinking unchecked, we become upset or discouraged.
But the Bible encourages us to think on good things. This shows us that there’s power in what we think about. Our thoughts can cause us to change our actions and direction. The thoughts we think can determine where we end up in life.
So, we need to redirect our thoughts when we begin to get down on ourselves. Reverse stinking thinking with positive things God says in His Word. ‘Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things. Whatever you have learned or received or heard from me or seen in me—put it into practice. And the God of peace will be with you. ‘Philippians 4:8-9
By choosing good thoughts, we’re setting ourselves up for success not failure!
