What is Peace of Mind?
Peace of mind can be defined as having a steadfast peace, calmness, and tranquility within our minds. The Hebrew word for peace is šālôm (shalom), which means completeness, soundness, welfare, peace, safety, health, prosperity, tranquility, and contentment (source). Who doesn’t desire to have this type of peace and tranquility in our minds?
So many of our spiritual battles begin in our minds. If our minds dwell on thoughts of negativity, worry and anxiety, it will be difficult to have true peace of mind. That is why focusing our minds and hearts on the power and beauty of God’s Word can shift our thinking and fill our minds with God’s peace. So let’s use the power of God’s Word to pray for peace of mind as we focus on God’s goodness and grace!
