His Perfect Peace

5 04 2016


You will keep in perfect peace all who trust in you, all whose thoughts are fixed on you! Isaiah 26:3 NLT

The Lord provides perfect peace for those who focus on Him. When my personal peace is elusive and hard to find, it’s time to take inventory of my thought life.  I need to consider what is consuming my time and my thoughts.  When I am not focused on the Lord and my trust in Him, worry sets in, that is followed by anxiety and then depression begins to appear.  It can be a debilitating process if I don’t change course.  I am so thankful that the Holy Spirit provides reminders to return our focus to the Lord.  We can turn our hearts and minds to Him when we need His peace.  When we concentrate on the Lord, His goodness, His faithfulness and His complete love for us, our mind is renewed and we can begin again.  His perfect peace follows our decision to focus on Him.  Staying focused on Him provides a constant flow of peace for our hearts and minds.

Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee. Isaiah 26:3
