Thou will 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 life. (Isa. 26:3,4)
The words of these verses in the Word were given to help and strenghten the faith and hope of God’s people thoughout the ages. They are just as applicable today as they were when they were first written. Every true child of God is safe and secure.
His mind is quiet and serene in the assurance of God’s favor if he will trust and believe the Lord. “Thou will keep him in perfect peace.” What an wonderful promise! The world cannot understand this promise because the world has never known the peace that God gives to His children. You see, God’s gift is peace inner peace, outward peace, a peace with God, a peace of conscience, and a peace at all times and in all things. It is a perfect peace for those who minds are stayed on God, because they trust Him.
We can find the peace that passes understanding by trusting in the Lord forever. In the Lord Jehovah in Him who was and is and is to come we find the Rock of Ages. God is firm and sure foundation for our faith and hope to build upon. And if we build upon the Rock, our homes will withstand all the storms of life. And that is encouagement for you and I, ….”for in the Lord JEHOVAH is everlasting strenght!
