The simple definition of place value is understanding the worth of your position as a one, ten, hundred, thousand etc.
One of the key characteristics is each place value is the benefit it carries.
One of the benefits of a genuine friendship is how easy & flawless each can describe, encourage, rebuke & uplift each other.
This is how a family friend describes his dear wife….Mimo Kadu nyar okuyu, the light of Kano plains, her whose smile can light up a fire on a rainy day; the chair lady of team yellow yellow; enough platitudes- but yes she sold my bike.
Well, this dear lady whose smile just lights up the whole room when she smiles penned this down. I consider this the benefit of understanding the benefit of understanding your place value in Christ.
The things I think about. PEACE. Many say I just want peace!!!!
The online definition that sounded great to me is; Peace is a stress-free state of security and calmness that comes when there’s no fighting or war, everything coexisting in perfect harmony and freedom. … When you feel at peace with yourself, you are content to be the person you are, flaws and everything.
The bible says; You keep him in perfect peace whose mind is stayed on you, because he trusts in you.Isaiah 26:3 ESV
My thought; Peace is not the absence of uncomfortable situation existing in our lives, and yet today each and every one of us has a choice to experience peace or not. When you entertain negative and bad thoughts, you lack peace and tranquility. But when you think about God’s goodness you see your world in a different light- mind you, you could be in the greatest of tough situations.
The Bible says; casting all your anxieties on him, because He cares for you.1 Peter 5:7. And do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. Philippians 4: 6-7
The trade off for God’s peace versus anxiety occurs in your thoughts. What are you thinking about?
The Bible says; Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things. Philippians 4:8.
So today I challenge you choose God way over anxiety and negativity, and experience the #peaceofGod.
