You keep him in perfect peace whose mind is stayed on you, because he trusts in you.
Isaiah 26:3 (ESV)
My husband and I were in the produce section of the supermarket. A man and his son were selecting fruit. The boy wanted to get a pineapple. The dad responded with, “What do you know about pineapples?”
This conversation was right at my elbow. My husband was nearby and heard what I did. When we finished our shopping and entered our car, I asked him the question that we heard about pineapple. He laughed and told me he thought the dad was talking to him. I thought he was talking to me. That question still evokes laughter at our home.
Which brings us to the discussion about peace. What do we know about it?
•True peace comes from God.
• Jesus is peace.
• Jesus brings us His peace.
•It is a Fruit of the Spirit.
•We strive to maintain it.
•We have to keep our eyes on Jesus.
Several of my Christian sisters and brothers have felt the workings of the enemy during the past couple of weeks. We know that the enemy has stirred up these issues. They tend to bring us down. The only way we can be victorious over him is to rely on God to carry us through these days. As Isaiah tells us, we have to keep our eyes on Jesus in order to have peace in our lives and our hearts.
