Pearl 299: Simple Formula

TOPIC: Faith and Peace

“Do not let your hearts be troubled. You believe in God; believe also in me" - John 14:1.

Your heart does not have to be troubled if you don't want it to be. Jesus told His followers to be careful not to allow their hearts to be in turmoil. And what was Jesus' next command? It was to have faith in Him! So let's summarize. You can keep your heart free from fear, anxiety, and trouble, and the way to do that is to put your faith and trust in Jesus. That seems a pretty straightforward and simple formula for inner peace. Is your heart troubled about something? Can you see that you have control over whether or not it is? What steps can you take today to bring peace to your heart?

Lord, I see Your formula for my peace and it seems almost beyond my reach. My heart is troubled so often, but today I realize it is because I allow it to be. Help me to follow Your simple formula, which allows me to know that my faith is small when my heart is in turmoil. Therefore, if I want the peace that passes all understanding found in You, I need to put my trust in You for whatever is troubling my heart. Thank you!
