"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:" Isaiah 26:3-4 KJV
Every day we either read about bad news, watch it on TV, or listen to it on the radio. Bad news can be unnerving to one’s mind leaving them frightened and void of peace of the mind. Individuals are seeking peace for the world and for their minds, but they are seeking the wrong sources, leaving many in a depressed state of mind. The Bible tells us there is no peace for the ungodly, but for those who trust in God can have "peace."
As Believers journey through earth they will experience difficulties and trying circumstances in their homes, their workplaces, and in this world because this is part of what happens in a "fallen" world. But, the Word of God warns Believers not to be caught off guard, we have been forewarned these things would happen! Life happens in the life of Believers and unbelievers alike, but Believers should not handle difficult circumstances as those who do not know God the Father.
Believers are to be an example to the world of the joy and peace of mind one has when trusting in God Almighty. We are to keep our minds focused and steadfast on God for everything, including difficulties in life. For God is our strength and hope during our times of need. He is our victory! He is our rescuer! He is our deliverer! He is our rewarder!
God promises "perfect peace" as we trust in Him. What battles are you struggling with right now? Stop struggling and cast those burdens onto the Lord, for He is your strength. Settle in your mind that God is able to meet your every need according to His riches in glory. Settle in your mind that God, who dwells within you, is stronger than anything you are going through in this world! Trust in God to fight your battles! Keep your mind "stayed on Him" and Our God will give us "perfect peace" to level any mountain and to destroy every Goliath in our lives now and in the future.
I have personally TP'd (Tried & Proved) Isaiah 26:3-4. Father God does reward us with "perfect peace" as we change our thinking and keep our minds stayed on Him for every victory in our lives. TP (Try & Prove) Isaiah 26:3-4 for yourself! Father God is no respecter of person, what He did for me, He will do for you! Father God loves you very much and wants you to be stable in your mind so you can soar strong like an eagle and not become weary in your daily living.
