BIBLE READING: Philippians 4:6-7
Calm Your Soul:
As you’re probably figuring out by now, a common theme behind this series on FOCUS is taking time to allow yourself to focus, which, ironically, is also a purpose behind the home devos. By taking time to free your mind from worldly concerns and open your heart to God, calmness or peace in your soul will be the result. Ironically, however, Philippians 4:6-7 says the opposite, that the peace of God will guard your hearts and your minds. This thought is not one of contradiction, but rather confirmation. Taking time to focus on God allows time for God to focus and work on you. So, you see, these three thoughts are interwoven, inseparable. One simply does not exist without the other. If Calmness or peace within is your pursuit, take time to free your mind and open your heart. By doing so, the peace of God will in turn help guard your hearts and minds.
