God, The Peacekeeper

By   •   May 1

green forest with straight path

You have an ego-a consciousness of being an individual. Of course, you do. But that doesn’t mean that you are to worship yourself, to think constantly of yourself, and to live entirely for yourself. Common sense tells you that your life would be miserable if you followed that course. God is infinitely more concerned about your happiness than you could possibly be. He says, “Deny yourself, and follow me.” There is many a person in the insane asylum today who thought excessively about himself, to the exclusion of God and others. Hypochondriacs who have a fanciful anxiety about their health will never be well, regardless of their physical condition.

Prayer for the day

Keep my mind on You, Lord, and help me to discipline the thoughts of self which crowd out Your peace.

    During the process of maturing as a Christian , a believer’s self-centredness should disappear. Your focus should quickly switch over to Christ. He should become the centre focus of your life. What incredible joy and peace there is once you make this transition.
