I S A I A H 2 6 : 3
“YOU WILL KEEP IN PERFECT PEACE THOSE WHOSE
MINDS ARE STEADFAST, BECAUSE THEY TRUST IN YOU.”
How do we keep ourselves in perfect peace, when we live in a time
where anxiety and panic attacks take over our everyday mantra?
The answer is quite simple, though not simply applied.
It’s to trust in God.
That may seem impossible, or just difficult to truly take hold of those
words and put all our confidence in Christ. It’s a phrase that’s easily
repeated and advice that’s always given, but we don’t always know
how to take hold of it.
Trusting in God doesn’t mean you’re going to know the exact details
and layout of your future, or how something will turn out, but it does
mean you know it will be good. Because God is good, and He doesn’t
give a rock when you ask for bread. It means that no matter what
happens you will be okay because you have your all-knowing Father
guiding your steps.
You don’t have to know what lies ahead for the next day, because you
know God has it taken care of. So you can sleep soundly and rest
assured because your faithful Redeemer has it in His hands. And that’s
perfect peace; it’s not worrying about what is to come because you
trust in someone far greater. Doubt has no room where trust is
present. So if something is troubling your heart and not giving you
rest, take that matter to Christ. You may not know what He’s doing to
do but you can trust that it will be taken care of. He calms pounding
hearts, and in times of great anxiety and fear, our Heavenly Father
replaces it with perfect peace;
If, you choose to trust Him.
