Isaiah 26:3-4 Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee. Trust ye in the LORD for ever: for in the LORD JEHOVAH is everlasting strength:
Perfect peace, can you imagine such a thing? God is to be trusted. He is trustworthy. The key to this perfect peace is to keep your heart and mind stayed on Him. Look not at the circumstances. Look not at what is going on around you but on HIm. Look not at your strength or ability but rather look to His. Look not at your enemies or what they can do but look to HIm. He is the God of glory. He is the God of power. He is the everlasting God. He has everlasting strength.
How do we keep our minds stayed on Him? We have to realize what our problem is. We are more concerned about the gifts the Giver has given us than the Giver. We get to caught up in this world. We think of our reputation and not His. We are concerned more about what people think of us than Him.
It is understandable that we have needs and wants. He promises to meet them but when you seek Him first. Matthew 6:32-33. He knows what you need. He knows that everyone needs things and He promises to meet those needs but when we seek Him.
It is normal that we would have fears and worries and lose our peace but He says that we can come to Him in prayer and ask Him, thank Him and get up and go away with peace that passes all understanding. Lets trust God. Philippians 4:6-8
Peace is ours when we stay our hearts and minds on Him. When we trust Him to do what is best for us. When we take our petitions to Him and leave them with Him. Today take steps to have perfect peace!
