Broken 2 B Healed
Tranquility
Isaiah 26-27, Philippians 2
Verse: Isaiah 26:3

There is something peaceful about the sound of the word tranquility. Life typically is lived on the edge-the ragged edge full of stress. Peace, an overused word, something known but not experienced and is at most times hard to find. But since we have not overused the word tranquility, it sounds so appealing, so peaceful and we all crave that.
God makes tranquility available to us. When He promises us "perfect peace,” and that is tranquility. It is important to remember that perfect peace is not a product that He offers but a result. It is the result of a steadfast mind, one that trusts God.
The better we focus our mind and out heart on God, the better we trust, the more we will experience the perfect peace that comes from God alone. This peace, or tranquility, passes all understanding. The peace that God has promised us in his word.
Sounds so amazing, doesn't it? It is such a contrast to the noise and congestion of traffic, the interrupting ring of the phone, the beep of the answering machine letting you know that you have messages, the sound of the hustle of people around you, or the sound of children's voices screaming for attention.
Perfect peace is not the result of God removing all of these, along with the other sights, sounds and smells of a stress-filled life. Instead, it is the result of a mind that is focused solely on Him, staying within God’s presence. That perfect peace sensation that just rushes through your body when you think about Jesus Christ.
Upon what is your mind focused on? What are your distractions? Determine today to keep God at the front of your thoughts, viewing everything through a God-conscious grid, seeing things through God’s eyes. Ask Him to help you know His perfect peace and I guarantee you that it is the most wonderful feeling.
