Dwell on What is True – Continued

You keep him in perfect peace whose mind is stayed on You,
because he trusts in You.
Isaiah 26:3

Current events tempt us to become discontent and afraid, but a focus on biblical truths helps a believer to compose and quiet the soul. This written list reminds me of what I know to be true and prompts right thinking. I am republishing it now from a previous post after hearing from several who are afraid during this time. A pdf version without links is provided at the end of the post for anyone desiring a printed version.

Dwelling on these truths when I am discouraged or distressed may feel mechanical at first. However, the Holy Spirit uses them to remind me that God knows what He is doing, loves me, and is trustworthy. I can rest as a weaned child does with his mother (Psalm 131) because the God of peace is with me.

Finally, brethren, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is of good repute, if there is any excellence and if anything worthy of praise, dwell on these things. The things you have learned and received and heard and seen in me, practice these things, and the God of peace will be with you.
Philippians 4:8-9
