The following is another attempt to use the goggle of Faith to weigh and filter various thoughts from conversations under the sun, on another blessed day. Gracious Reading!
- Whenever we don’t fully recover from an unfavourable or painful experience, we won’t be able to respond to God from certain regions of our heart—until we keep the commandments or
comforts of faith and love concerning it. Only then would we find the peace of mind needed to
continue with the Lord, overcome offense and become better comforters to men (Jer. 15:16,
- To be at peace with God, the Lord simply expects us to become skilful in denying ungodliness and
worldly lusts. Thereby, would we be able to comprehend the actual thoughts or things of God;
the things he gives to those who inherit Christ (Tit. 2:12-13, 2Cor. 5:17-18, 2Pet. 1:4).
- Whenever we don’t spiritually weigh our thoughts on the scale of the words of Christ or gospel of
peace, we would resort to judging by the peace this world gives, or by the sight of the eyes and
the hearing of the ears (1Cor. 2:15, Jn. 14:27, Isa. 11:13).
- A man with a monthly income of $100 will remain restless until he builds a house in 30 years time;
yet, he’ll have a pseudo-peace all through, though his soul remains not built with the words of
Christ and of God. Whatever we end up building in life without the use of these materials
(words/precious stones), would be inferior to what Cain built (Acts 20:32, 1Cor. 3:10-14, 1Pet.
- “With God, all things are possible.” With the preaching of the gospel of peace and of (eternal)
salvation, all things are possible. With eternal life, all things are possible (Matt. 19:16-26, Isa. 52:7,
- One goal of ministrations that focus on God’s righteousness is that, it opens and equips our eyes
to undress or see through thoughts that selfishly promote gain or advantage over others, so we
don’t remain hindered from journeying to a place where we are at peace with God (Rom. 1:17-
18, 1Tim. 6:5-6, Rev. 3:18c).
- Seasons when the power kept in the gospel would become a tangible possession to us, are those
where we would place the right premium on following peace with all men. And such are when the
Lord would bless and comfort us with the actual thoughts or words of God (Heb. 12:14/4:12, Psa.
- We can’t claim to be at peace with God or to be living in the sight of the LORD, if the words of our
mouth and the meditations of our heart aren’t acceptable in His sight. And we can’t achieve this
generational milestone if we are not being enlightened on the redemption packaged in Christ;
which should prepare us for the eternal redemption or perfection in God (Ps. 19:14, 1Cor. 1:30,
- Most things that trouble the peace of our dear hearts are always traceable to our ignorance of
some truth or the presence of some unremitted sin in us. And the only cure for this is for the light
in (and called) Christ, to become our daily enlightenment (Jn. 9:41, Acts 26:18, Eph. 5:14).
- Seasons when we don’t qualify to face reactions from the world, are seasons when we haven’t
taken the faith of the Son of God as personal as we ought. But as we do; even by adding vital to
ingredients to our faith, our hearts and mind will keep appreciating in a peace that is better
experienced than explained (Jn. 15:18-20, 2Pet. 1:5-7, Phil. 4;6-8).
- As we see through the veil of peace that this world gives, journeying to inherit the peace of the
Kingdom would become our new goal and meditation! Our value system would revolve around
God’s thought, and we would be strengthened to despise this world and its god (Jn. 14:27, Ps.
17:15, 1Jn. 2:15).
- The peace that this world gives is a thick veil! It limits many believers from sighting and partaking
of the actual blessing or promise of the New Testament and inspires them to settle for the natural
blessings of the Old Testaments. And so many end up remaining strangers to the righteousness
and peace of God’s Kingdom (Jn. 14:27, 1Jn. 2:25, Rom. 14:17).
