S. O. A. P.
Here’s Your 90 second AM Devotional!
And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
The Apostle Paul, who authored this letter to the Ephesians from prison, told them and us to let the Peace we’ve found in God, which exceeds all of our abilities to fathom or understand, totally GUARD our minds and hearts in Christ Jesus.
Our minds and our hearts are delicate components to who we are and what we do. When our minds lack Peace, we begin to allow our thoughts to run wild. Wild thoughts in our Minds lead to Crazy actions that emanate from the Heart. What needs to happen you may ask? There must be something that controls our minds/thoughts and hearts/actions. St. Paul says it’s God’s PEACE. Only peace from God can calm our minds and hearts. That PEACE literally GUARDS our thoughts and actions. Being GUARDED by God’s Peace is not understandable to the onlookers and haters. They just don’t get it. It’s what we “Followers Of Jesus” count as NORMAL.
This AM, I want to thank You that as I leave my house right now, I leave with my mind and my heart GUARDED by Your Peace. Amen
