Romans 8:6 (NLT) So letting your sinful nature control your mind leads to death. But letting the Spirit control your mind leads to life and peace.
The Bible makes it clear that life and peace comes from living in sync with the Holy Spirit—such a contrast to today’s anxiety and stress! We need replenishment strategies to help us access the life and peace that is available to us as Christ followers. Start with your schedule. Are you beginning the day with God’s word or the latest news report? Begin by presenting yourself before the Lord in prayer and then reading your Bible. It has been said that Billy Graham read one chapter from Proverbs every day. Reading its wisdom is a good day-starting discipline and a great strategy for accessing Spirit-led thinking that “leads to life and peace.” Don’t settle for anxiety when God offers you His peace.
