If there is an urgent deficit out there today, it is not the toilet paper, coronavirus test kits or financial injections into the economy. The world is desperately deficient of peace. Peace of the soul, that is. Everybody wants a peace of mind. They demand a plan from politicians, answers from medical professionals… Peace of mind is hard to achieve because it in a codependent relationship with the world. The panic over the coronavirus is the perfect example of this.
Peace of the soul is the product of a relationship with the unmovable, unchangeable, all-powerful God. Peace of the soul has an actual dwelling place – “The name of the LORD is a strong tower; the righteous man runs into it and is safe.” This place is more real and secure than anything the world can offer. “It is well with my soul” is the statement of ultimate peace, a state of being that transcends circumstances and time.
If your soul is at peace, you can control your mind by adjusting the diet. If instead of the “facts” or the perceptions of the world you feed it with the thoughts of “whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable”, it functions really well and produces sound decisions.
The best news ever – peace of the soul is readily available, free of charge and never runs out!
