We don’t mind spending money to protect our physical wellbeing. Alarms, burglar bars, locks…if it’s out there, we buy it.
But how much do we invest in protecting our mental wellbeing?
The Bible says, “The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy.”
John 10:10a KJV
And this is one sophisticated thief. He has an entire network of agents whom he uses to execute his evil plans.
Sure he doesn’t mind robbing us of our earthly possessions, but his greatest gain comes from stealing our peace of mind.
He attacks us daily. At home, on the job, in traffic…wherever he gets an “in”, he takes advantage of it.
This is why we are encouraged to, “Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.”
Ephesians 6:11 KJV
The only thing that can truly guarantee protection of our mental wellbeing is God’s peace.
We are told that, “Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee.”
Isaiah 26:3 KJV
Friends, God wants us to live our best possible lives. “I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.”
John 10:10 KJV
So won’t you accept His protection today?
