Claim Your Peace

Someone recently asked me, “How do you explain that Jesus did so much for people 2,000 years ago, but doesn’t now?” So I asked, “are you letting him make a difference in you?”

God has revealed all we need for happiness and peace. But we have to let his word impact the way we think if it’s going to make a difference in our lives! Saint Paul tells us, “be transformed by the renewal of your mind.” Jesus told his apostles, who he knew would face tremendous trials, “do not let your hearts be troubled.” He wasn’t inviting them to receive peace. He was commanding them to claim it.

Want God’s word to make a difference in you? Be transformed by the renewal of your mind. It starts by not letting your hearts give in to fear, anxiety, negativity, and constant complaining. Fill your mind with gratitude, truth, beauty, goodness, and the things of God. Then, regardless of your circumstances, you’ll see Jesus making all the difference – in you.
