I like to pray. I like to pray in my bedroom.
As I pray in my bedroom, I can feel the presence of God elevating me to Heaven. As the Holy Spirit of God elevates me to Heaven, I feel at peace with God and with myself.
~”Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.”~Philippians 4:6-7, NIV~
This peace that I feel is calming. This peace that I feel is soothing to my heart, my mind, my body, my soul, and my spirit. This peace that I feel brings me into the presence of Almighty God. Oh, how I enjoy feeling this peace of God!
This peace of God brings me in complete unity with the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit of God, the full Trinity of Christ. This peace makes me healed, whole, and delivers me from the devil and other forces of darkness at work. As I put this peace of God into action, I have faith that others who God puts into my life will experience it too.
I currently work at a childcare facility as I study to become a counselor with my university full-time. One time, I was reading a couple of books to four of the children in the young toddler classroom of the childcare facility. I noticed that as I was reading these books to them that they were very occupied with me reading to them. I also noticed that they were feeling at peace with God and with themselves as I was reading books to them.
The lead teacher of the classroom noticed the peace of God that filled the atmosphere of the classroom and told me as soon as the classroom got down to one child, “The children seem to enjoy you reading to them!”
This comment that the lead teacher made me feel at peace with God and myself because I knew that I was doing the work of the Lord during that moment. I knew, in that moment, that the work of the Lord was accomplished!
~”Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things. Whatever you have learned or received or heard from me, or seen in me—put it into practice. And the God of peace will be with you.”~Philippians 4: 8-9, NIV~
I shall continue to fix my thoughts on all of the above: whatever is deemed by the Lord to be true, noble, right, pure, lovely, admirable, and praiseworthy. I shall also put the peace of God into practice in all that I do for the Lord. Peace of God fills me up. It surpasses all negative emotions so that others can be filled up with the peace of God too. Praise the Lord! Hallelujah!
