Scriptures about Emotions, Peace, and Guarding your mind

Proverbs 29:11

A fool uttereth all his mind: but a wise man keepeth it in till afterwards.

There is no wisdom in a fool, so it is only foolishness that comes out of his mind, and he is quick to speak, but the wise man listens, processes what he has heard, and then responds.

Philippians 4:6-9

6 Be careful for nothing; but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.

7 And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.

8 Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.

9 Those things, which ye have both learned, and received, and heard, and seen in me, do: and the God of peace shall be with you.

 

Verse 6: Be careful for nothing; but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.

As I wrote in a previous post “How do I pray?” praise and worship should be a big part of our prayer time. We ought to be thankful always for all that the Lord had done for us. God doesn’t want us to worry, but He does want us to cry out to Him, when we have a problem, or a need. If you don’t get an answer right away, keep asking.

Verse 7: And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.

The Lord promises us peace, and shows us how secure we are in Christ.

Verse 8: Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.

This admonishes us to be careful about what we watch and listen to. This includes television shows and movies, but it also includes the people we hang out with—is their conversation scriptural, true, and beneficial? Or is it error, harmful, and destructive?

Verse 9: Those things, which ye have both learned, and received, and heard, and seen in me, do: and the God of peace shall be with you.

What we have learned, received, heard and seen, from the writings of the Apostle Paul, is the message of the Cross. If you place our faith in that– the God of peace will be with you, He is your never-ending and inexhaustible source of peace.
