Think About The Lord – Peace Today


“Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God. And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.

Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things… and the God of peace will be with you.” Philippians 4:6-9

Only two things are required for peace today. 1) Pray about everything and 2) Think about God, our Father, Jesus the Son, our Savior, and the Blessed Holy Spirit, our teacher, our comforter and the earnest of our hope of resurrection from the dead. Indeed in our Lord Jesus Christ is fullness of life and that more abundantly.

There is no peace or life giving success in filling our days, our minds, and our thoughts with wrangling over conflicts, strife, evil acts of men, violence murder, death dealing at any level, the sensational in the news, the troubles all around the world and at home, lack, want, need, poverty, sickness, disappointment, all the things of this world that discourage us and rob us of our joy.

Thinking about what is true, honest, just, pure, lovely, good report, virtuous, and worthy of praise is to think about the Lord.

Here’s a song. We sing it at church from time to time.

“When I think about the Lord,

How He saved me, how He raised me

How He filled me with the Holy Ghost

How He healed me to the uttermost,

When I think about the Lord

How He picked me up and turned me around

How He placed me feet on solid ground,

It makes me want to shout! HALLELUJAH!

THANK YOU JESUS! LORD YOU WORTHY

OF ALL THE GLORY AND ALL THE HONOR,

AND ALL THE PRAISE!

It makes me want to SHOUT!!! HALLELUJAH!!

Here’s a YouTube link so you can listen to it and let it bless you.

Now hear and think on these things and let you mind and heart be at peace today.

"Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.” Philippians 4:8

God is Truth. Jesus said, I am the way and the truth and the life. [John 14:16] God is honest [Numbers 23:19].

God is Just. [Nehemiah 9:33] [Psalm 7:11] [Isaiah 45:21] [Romans 3:26] [Revelation 15:3]

God is Pure. In Him is light and there is no darkness at all. Every Word of God is pure [Prov. 30:]. The Wisdom of God is pure. [James 3:17]

The dwelling place of God is Lovely. [Psalm 84:1] The feet of Jesus are Lovely. [Isaiah 52:7]

A Good Report is healthy. “The light of the eyes rejoices the heart, And a good report makes the bones healthy." Proverbs 15:30

God is Virtue. It is the essential quality of His character - moral excellence and righteousness; goodness.

All Praise, all glory all honor belongs to God because He alone is worthy. {Psalm 7:17; psalm 9:14; Psalm 35:28; Psalm 79:13]

We could spend an eternity and never exhaust the praises of God. Think about Him today.

“Father, God today is the day You have made. We will rejoice and be glad in it as we think on these things.” Amen
