Trust Him

8 06 2016

You keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on you, because he trusts in you. Trust in the Lord forever, for the Lord God is an everlasting rock.”   Isaiah 26:3-4 

Faith is the evidence of things not seen.  This calls us to imagine our situation in a blessed condition even when things may appear to be so far from our prayer.  We have to continue to say, act and move forward according to God’s promises – even when the bank balance is low, the doctors report is negative or other disappointments may come our way.  Even when we don’t understand, we have to have faith and trust that He is working out for our good. Our faithful Father is working on our behalf and He promises to be with us every step of the way.  Our Trust is in the Lord.


A Sound Mind

giving imageFor God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.  2 Timothy 1:7

I am so thankful that the Lord provides a sound mind for our journey. The enemy comes to kill and destroy but Jesus, our Savior came to provide abundant life. The spirit of fear that fuels anxiety and despair is not of God. We can reject fear and open our hearts to God’s power of love and peace. His perfect peace can keep our mind, body and soul. His perfect peace can sustain us even during the most difficult circumstance. His perfect peace provides nourishment for our spirits and gives us strength to move forward. We can reject fear and embrace the Love that Jesus has for us today. God has not given us the spirit of fear but of power and of love and a sound mind.

 You will keep in perfect peace all who trust in you, all whose thoughts are fixed on you! Trust in the Lord always, for the Lord God is the eternal Rock.  Isaiah 26:3-4
