“And the peace of God [that peace which reassures the heart, that peace] which transcends all understanding, [that peace which] stands guard over your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus [is yours].” Philippians‬ ‭4:7‬ ‭AMP‬‬
In what ways do you need more peace in your life? What’s disrupting your peace?

“Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me [following Me as My disciple], for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest (renewal, blessed quiet) for your souls.”
‭‭Matthew‬ ‭11:29‬ ‭AMP‬‬
Which areas of your life feel overwhelming, exhausting and in need more rest?

“Now faith is the assurance (title deed, confirmation) of things hoped for (divinely guaranteed), and the evidence of things not seen [the conviction of their reality—faith comprehends as fact what cannot be experienced by the physical senses].” Hebrews‬ ‭11:1‬ ‭AMP‬‬
How do you exercise your faith when what you want and need are out of sight?

“I will say of the Lord, “He is my refuge and my fortress, My God, in whom I trust [with great confidence, and on whom I rely]!”” Psalms‬ ‭91:2‬ ‭AMP‬‬
What keeps you from having complete confidence in God? Why?

“In peace [and with a tranquil heart] I will both lie down and sleep, For You alone, O Lord, make me dwell in safety and confident trust.” Psalms‬ ‭4:8‬ ‭AMP‬‬
How has God kept you safe from yourself, and in the situations you’ve experienced?

“Therefore, confess your sins to one another [your false steps, your offenses], and pray for one another, that you may be healed and restored. The heartfelt and persistent prayer of a righteous man (believer) is able to accomplish much [when put into action and made effective by God—it is dynamic and can have tremendous power].” James‬ ‭5:16‬ ‭AMP‬‬
What do you need to be healed in your life?

“Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors and gain an overwhelming victory through Him who loved us [so much that He died for us].” Romans‬ ‭8:37‬ ‭AMP‬‬
In which ways do you need to remind yourself that you already have the victory?

“For it is by grace [God’s remarkable compassion and favor drawing you to Christ] that you have been saved [actually delivered from judgment and given eternal life] through faith. And this [salvation] is not of yourselves [not through your own effort], but it is the [undeserved, gracious] gift of God;” ‭‭Ephesians‬ ‭2:8‬ ‭AMP‬‬
In which areas of your life are you being hard on yourself and need to embrace God’s grace and compassion?

“This hope [this confident assurance] we have as an anchor of the soul [it cannot slip and it cannot break down under whatever pressure bears upon it]—a safe and steadfast hope that enters within the veil [of the heavenly temple, that most Holy Place in which the very presence of God dwells],” ‭‭Hebrews‬ ‭6:19‬ ‭AMP‬‬
What are you hoping that God does in your life?

“It was for this freedom that Christ set us free [completely liberating us]; therefore keep standing firm and do not be subject again to a yoke of slavery [which you once removed].” ‭‭Galatians‬ ‭5:1‬ ‭AMP‬‬
Is there an area of your life in which you’re not living in total freedom? Why? How can you begin walking in the freedom that is already yours?
