“Forever, O LORD, Your word is settled in heaven,” Psalm 119:89, NASB.
“And let the peace (soul harmony which comes) from Christ rule (act as umpire continually) in your hearts [deciding and settling with finality all questions that arise in your minds, in that peaceful state] to which as [members of Christ’s] one body you were also called [to live]. And be thankful (appreciative), [giving praise to God always]” Colossians 3:15, Amplified.
When your mind and emotions are full of care and worry, there’s only one thing that can settle you—the truth of God’s Word. When everything in our lives crumble, His Word stands firm. When we feel sad, angry or uncertain about the future, His Word stands firm. When everything seems shaken, His powerful truth stands firm like a rock. So let the truth of God’s Word settle you. Let it settle your mind, and your emotions. Let Him minister peace to your heart. I challenge you right now to focus on a scripture from God’s Word and speak it out loud. See how His Word will bring you back into focus and calm your emotions. God wants to settle you today!
Prayer: Father, I know that my emotions have been full of care and concern. You are my Father and you love and care for me. I know your Word is settled forever in heaven. I ask that your Word will settle me right now. Settle my emotions, and my mind as I focus on you. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
