Seek a Trouble Free Heart
Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.John 14:27
If we have love, peace, and joy from the Lord, then we should have a trouble free heart. The more faith we have and the more our thoughts are on things above, the more love, peace, and joy we will experience. A trouble free heart comes to us through the Spirit from trusting and serving our Lord.
Obey the Lord and serve him faithfully with all your heart. Remember the great things he has done for you. (1 Samuel 12:24) When our hearts are devoted to serving the Lord, then our hearts will be free. Whatever we do in our days, we seek to be Christ-like reflecting the Lord’s love and kindness to everyone.
The more love we reflect to others, the more love the Lord pours into our hearts and this makes us more like Jesus, bringing us closer to the Lord. Love is what frees us from ourselves. Our focus is on God and others with faith that the Lord will guide us through life enabling us to take care of ourselves and our families. But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. (Matthew 6:33) If we really believe this verse and live this verse, putting the Lord first by living for Christ, we will develop and a trouble free heart as our love and faith continually increases.
Achieving this is a process and takes discipline and courage because we have to pray and train ourselves to have a heart for ministering to others. A heart that serves the Lord by ministering to others is a trouble free heart. So I say, walk by the Spirit, and you will not gratify the desires of the flesh. (Galatians 5:16) If we follow the Spirit, we will be serving the Lord and the Spirit will change our heart to the heart of Jesus, a trouble free heart.
Today, if your heart is troubled go the Lord and pray, then make a conscious effort to reflect Christ to everyone. This will move your thoughts from self to God and others, thereby freeing your heart. The more you serve the Lord with your thoughts, words, and actions, the more your heart will be trouble free. It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery. (Galatians 5:1) Serve the Lord and be free from bondage to the world.
Lord thank you for giving me a trouble free heart by serving you with a heart of love. Thank you Lord for filling my heart with your love, and setting me free in Christ. In Jesus name, Amen
