My Kingdom is made up of righteousness, peace and joy. It is about right living, which means putting people as a high priority. It also means taking care of yourself. There is a balance. Even Jesus needed to get away to spend time with Me. When you sense yourself getting stressed out or overwhelmed, just center yourself in Me once again.
If you feel yourself becoming negative, make a conscious effort to turn your thoughts to the positive. Nothing can steal your peace unless you allow it to. Let Me be Master over every area of your life.
Stop worrying because you cannot control others' choices or your circumstances. I am Lord of all. Do you really think anything in your life ever takes Me by surprise? Turn to Me and thank Me, realizing I know the end from the beginning. I am working everything out, good or bad, for My purposes.
What I love to hear are the sounds of worship, praise and thanksgiving. I love when you remember all the things I have done for you in the past. If I did it once, I can do it again. Be bold in your praise and your prayers. That shows Who you put your trust and confidence in and that is how you rest and stay in peace, My child.
Psalm 131:1-3 Amplified Bible (AMP)
1 Lord, my heart is not haughty, nor my eyes lofty; neither do I exercise myself in matters too great or in things too wonderful for me.
2 Surely I have calmed and quieted my soul; like a weaned child with his mother, like a weaned child is my soul within me [ceased from fretting].
3 O Israel, hope in the Lord from this time forth and forever.
Nahum 1:7 Living Bible (TLB)
The Lord is good. When trouble comes, he is the place to go! And he knows everyone who trusts in him!
Psalm 37:37 Amplified Bible (AMP)
Mark the blameless man [who is spiritually complete], and behold the upright [who walks in moral integrity];
There is a [good] future for the man of peace [because a life of honor blesses one’s descendants].
