10 WAYS TO HAVE PEACE OF MIND

Updated on December 14, 2012

10 Ways to have peace of mind

· Pray about what worries you

Philippians 4:6 – Be careful for nothing but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your request be made known unto God and the peace of God which passes all understanding shall keep your heart and mind by Christ Jesus.

· Learn to be thankful

Be careful for nothing but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving. When a person receives something from someone they say thank you because of the generosity shown. Thank you is an act of faith toward God emphasizing one’s belief that everything is going to work together for good (Romans 8:28). It is telling God thank you on credit.

· Don’t worry about what has not happened yet

To be careful for nothing is to not have any anxiety and to not worry about the future. Most of what a person worries about never happens, but does happen in the worriers mind. Because of as a man thinks in his or her heart so he is, the actions of the person may lead to frantic and unwise behavior.

· Guard your ear gate

Don’t try to listen to every bit of gossip and news because much will certainly be troubling. What one does not need to know should not be an issue. Jesus was in the hinder part of the ship asleep when the storm arose in the midst of the sea, so he was not awake to what was troubling the minds of the Disciples. They came and awakened him to what was troubling them. Don’t let other people’s mindset in their storm shake and trouble you. Jesus had a different mindset facing the same storm. He spoke out of himself what was inside and that was peace. He spoke to the storm "peace be still" and there was a great calm. Jesus did not listen to what the Disciples had to say about him not caring if they perished or not. He simply said where is your faith?

· Receive God’s forgiveness

For the Christian, guilt and condemnation is the result of sin; this is why 1John 1:9 says if we confess our sins he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. Romans 8:1 also declares there is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus who walk not after the flesh but after the Spirit. And John 3:17 declares that God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through him might be saved. Receiving God’s forgiveness brings peace of mind because the person has now been brought back into right standing and fellowship with God, and Romans 5:1 says therefore being justified by faith (declared righteous) we have peace with God.

· Learn to trust God

Isaiah 26:3- says Thou will keep him in perfect peace whose mind is stayed on thee because he trusteth in thee.

· Keep your mind stayed on God’s Word and not on the counsel of the ungodly.

Psalm 1:1-2a says Blessed is the man who walks not in the counsel of the ungodly or stands in the way of sinners or sits in the seat of the scornful, but his delight is in the law of the Lord;

· Walk by Faith and not by sight

If we process everything by what we see, there will be no peace of mind because for the child of God, seeing is not always believing. Peace of mind for the believer knows that it is not over until it’s over and when it is over... God will have the final say.

· Don’t fear

2Timothy 1:7 declares that God has not given us a spirit of fear but of power, love and a sound (disciplined) mind.

· Don’t think on the negative

Philippians 4:8 - Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honorable, 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.
