God Will Keep You in Perfect Peace
Key Verse to Read and Treasure
You will keep in perfect peace all who trust in you, all whose thoughts are fixed on you!—Isaiah 26:3 (NLT)
For all whose peace comes and goes, has peaks and valleys, peace that can be like a lush garden one day and dried up desert the next, God’s promise of having perfect peace is refreshing and comforting. Isaiah writes the key to having immovable, steadfast peace is trusting in God. With our mind fixed on God, we can enjoy peace the world cannot give and is not dependent upon circumstances or situational.
Do you long for the perfect, immovable peace of God? The peace that passes all human understanding and is constant? Perfect peace is obtained by having perfect trust and confidence in our perfectly wise, perfectly loving, perfectly compassionate and providing God.
What can make you trust God more than knowing all the perfection of God is working for you and all his promises have found their “yes” in Jesus Christ? What need can you have that God cannot care for or provide? What situation can you present to him that he is not sovereign over? What sickness can you go through have that he cannot heal or wound he cannot mend? If you know like Moses said, there is nothing too hard for God what can’t you trust him with?
The perfection of God is what we fix our mind on. Knowing God is perfect in every way. In his timing and in his plans for our life. In more ways than we can think or imagine God is perfect and, in his perfection, we can be fully confident. That same confidence when it is fully developed, will lead us to the perfect peace we need and have missed in the past. When God’s peace is abiding in us, our response to every trouble or need around us is the same: one of peace and trust in God who is perfect in all his ways.
Lord, let us have perfect peace as we keep our mind stayed on you. Amen
Is your trust in God’s perfection increasing your peace? On a scale of 1-10 where is your trust in God today? Where is your peace?
