Daily Devotional - God Thinking Preempt 1

Isaiah 26:3, “Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee.”

Do you have an unwanted debt?
Do you have any troubles?
And for some maybe troubles on more sides than one?
Have people said or done some things that hurt you?

For some of us to be burdened by something or someone has been going on for so long we have began to believe that this is the way it is supposed to be.  We start to think that it just can't get better, that we will forever be assigned to this station of gloom and troubles and peril.

Along the way in life we have had many teachers.  We have been taught what to do and what not to do.  We have been taught basic math, science and english and even some Bible.  Some of us received formal training in a specialized field of endeavor, like health care, masonry, carpentry,  mechanics or management.  Some of us have a high school diploma, some college , others a masters degree or a PhD.

We have learned a great many things, some to our credit and some to our shame. 

One look around and we can see how busy we are as a people.  For some of us our day, our week, our entire year or longer is mapped out with little or no room for change or diversion.

Some of us have spent more time thinking about what we cannot do, haven/t done or won't ever have the chance to

do - more than thinking about what we can do.  

Some of us have dreams or goals that take us beyond our current circumstances.  Do you fit this category?  Some of us have tried to break away from whatever it is holding us back only to find an invisible elastic band attached to it drawing us back again and again. 

How would you like to have the power to overcome the circumstances and see your goals and dreams come to pass?
