Sadly, I can sometimes let a negative thought about a situation or a person get the better of me. It’s possible I don’t know the context of a situation or why a person acted the way they did. I need to stop and think about whether continuing with the negative thoughts is going to bring the peace that God desires for me.
Questions for further thought:
1. What negative thoughts have become strongholds in your life?
2. What are some ways you can promote peace in your own life and the lives of others?
Challenge: Jesus is our Prince of Peace and provides the peace that passes understanding. Spend time in prayer thanking him for the peace He gives and asking to be a peacemaker in your circle of influence.
