Isaiah 26:3 You will keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on You, because he trusts in You.
In a world of chaos, stress and confusion, a world where men don’t believe, a world where there seems to be more unrest than peace, God is offering “PERFECT PEACE” on today.
Do you have a peace of mind on today, or did you arise in a state of chaos in your mind?
Where are your thoughts right now? Is your mind stayed on God?
Do you want peace that surpass all understanding in all circumstances of life?
In this text, Israel had been divided into 2 nations and they had been separated from God because of Idolatry. They were worried about their future and this had caused them to have a spirit of unrest instead of peace.
Many people in the world today are walking around in a spirit of unrest instead of the peace that God clearly states that He is able to give them.
Jesus says in John 14:27 Peace I leave with you. My peace I give to you. Not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.
The mind is where unrest starts and is settled. The mind is the place where the enemy comes to in his attempt to take away your peace.
To rid ourselves of every thoughts that does not bring a peace of mind and are not of God, we must bring those thoughts under subjection and authority to the Word of God.
When unrest shows up at the door of our minds, we are commanded in 2 Corinthians 10:5-casting down imaginations and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ.
In this text, we are given a promise of God's “PERFECT PEACE” on today people of God.
It is the Lord God who declares this promise to His people. The Lord is the one that does the keeping of the mind, however, this perfect peace is conditional.
To receive this “PERFECT PEACE" that God offers on today we must (1) keep our minds on Him and (2) we must put our confidence and trust in Him alone for He is the only who offers true "PEACE".
If you are in need of God's "PERFECT PEACE" on today, God has made it available to you. Seek Him!!
Put God in view in your mind and keep Him there, regardless of the situation you may currently be experiencing. KEEP GOD IN VIEW!!!!
The Lord promises to keep those in "PERFECT PEACE" that completely place their confidence in Him by leaning and depending on Him to do the necessary work that is needed to bring about our much needed "PEACE" of mind in this crazy world.
Lord, help us to keep our minds on you. Help us Lord to trust you and your Word, knowing that every tittle of it is true and that you will do just what promise on behalf of your people.
Lord, help us to surrender our every thoughts to you in prayer. Help us to know that you have already given us a way of escape through prayer and your Word.
Lord, help us to trust you more and in trusting you and your Word, we will in turn have an assurance that the results will be that we will have your "PEACE" as our "PEACE".
Philippians 4:7 And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will protect your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.
