“There is no peace,” says my God, “for the wicked.” Isaiah 57:21. Seeing ourselves as the center of the universe leads to misery. We weren’t made to be the focus of our own attention. We were made to give our hearts to “the High and Lofty One,” who lives with those who have a contrite and humble spirit. He brings comfort and peace to those who sense their need of Him. Lord, help us to turn our thoughts away from ourselves and focus our attention on You, the only source of true and lasting peace. A person is never so empty as when he is full of self.
