You will keep in perfect peace those whose minds are steadfast, because they trust in you. (Isaiah 26:3)

Typography: Isaiah 26:3

Trust in the Lord forever,     for the Lord, the Lord himself, is the Rock eternal.  Lord, you establish peace for us;     all that we have accomplished you have done for us. (Isaiah 26:4,12)

What does it look like to have the perfect peace? Maybe we’ve not felt this for a long time. Some might even say they’ve never felt it.

But God’s peace is more than a feeling that comes and goes. It is a blessing that comes from trusting in Him. It is repeatedly going back to the Rock eternal and leaning on Him instead of on the flimsy scaffoldings we’ve set up for our lives—money, career, relationships, pleasures. It is recalling and finding assurance in all that He’s done for us in the past, knowing He will continue to look after us until we reach our heavenly home.

Lord, we surrender our minds to You, and ask to exchange our unrest for Your peace. Help us in our unbelief, and teach us how to trust in You.
