In Perfect Peace
“You will keep in perfect peace him whose mind
is steadfast because he trusts in you.” Isaiah 26:3 (NIV)
“Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace,
whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee.” Isa 26:3 (KJV)
As we go through life, we have times of uncertainty, uneasiness, and depression. We begin to feel that we are alone in our walk with God.
It is when we find ourselves feeling as though we have been painted into a corner that we find out certain things about life. We realize what’s important. We discover Who can help us and wants to help us. We learn exactly how precious relationships are to us.
When we proceed through a time of difficulty or an illness, our own or that of a family member, we can get through it if we keep our eyes on the Lord.
People have been striving for peace since God cast Adam and Eve out of Eden. When mankind forges a peace with each other, the world greets is with favor but it is always short lived.
From time to time in my generation, there have been movements promoting peace. They fade from the forefront of the scene whenever an act of war occurs. We have to keep our eyes on Jesus. When He comes again to Earth; we will have lasting peace because He is the Prince of Peace.
