Peace of mind has really eluded many people today. Fear and anxiety of so many things, including the unknown, have taken the grip of human beings. The next minute, hour, day or month etc, has become a nightmare for the victims of troubled minds. But there is a solution to this challenge: the love of God. This article assures God's love as the perfect channel for a peaceful mind
There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in love 1 John 4:18 (KJV)
And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus Philippians 4:7 (KJV)
For God is not the author of confusion, but of peace, as in all churches of the saints 1 Corinthians 14:33 (KJV)
Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest Matthew 11:28 (KJV)
Many people are really troubled in their hearts for one reason or the other. Some have given themselves to drugs, alcohol, suicide and prostitution, in attempts to drown or run away from the overwhelming challenge. The truth is that they lack God's fatherly love and peace of God, and so are insecure in themselves.
God longs to shower His love on you because He wants your heart to pant for joy and not for fear. He wants to take away your fears and carry your burden while you rest in His love. You may not believe it but God cares for you. He longs to grant you a restful mind and wipe away the tears from your eyes.
The love of God truly is the perfect channel for a peaceful mind. When you are enveloped with God's love, you enjoy peace of mind as one of its benefits; fear and anxiety are totally eradicated; however, joy and peace become a normal way of life for you.
God is love and author of peace. The peace of God has the power to calm you down and give you a rest of mind, no matter the problem you may be facing. It is a force that you can't really explain its mode of operation but you can experience its manifestation.
The love of God releases the kind of peace that the world can never offer. This perfect channel makes all the difference. You will be at peace even when every other thing is in disarray. This is because you are assured that God will take care of all the problems for you.
Does that mean that you will fold your hands and do nothing? No, it means that your peaceful mind is in the position to receive instructions on how to handle the challenges facing you.
Now, you may ask, how do I secure this love? God's love is available through Jesus Christ. When you receive Jesus Christ as your personal Lord and saviour, the love of God is shared abroad in your heart. You become eligible for the peace of God which gives peace of mind.
Paul, the apostle in the scriptures, enjoyed a peaceful mind even though he went through a lot of persecutions and trials. This was because he had Jesus as his lord. Also, John, one of Jesus' disciples enjoyed this benefit of God's love. He was able to receive the whole book of Revelations even though he was in exile.
In conclusion, fears, anxiety and troubled minds are sure to come, but you can protect yourself against them by securing the love of God. This perfect channel is the answer to the chaos in this world today. Sign for a peaceful mind by asking Jesus into your life today. And if you have done so already, believe in God's love for you and see Him work wonders in your life.
