Perfect peace // 19-10-23

“You will keep in perfect peace all who trust in you, all whose thoughts are fixed on you! Trust in the Lord always, for the Lord God is the eternal Rock.” Isaiah‬ ‭26‬:‭3‬-‭4‬ ‭NLT‬‬

When so much around us feels out of control, when the ground under our feet seems unstable, and we’re feeling our anxiety levels rising the Bible tells us what we can do that will help. We can fix our thoughts on the Lord, the One who is our Rock, the One who is eternal! It takes intent tho to move our thinking from the issues and problems to thinking about Jesus. It might mean we have to stop looking at social media and start reading the Bible; that we stop getting involved in online debates and start communicating with God; that we switch off the constant streaming of news and start listening to worship music. This isn’t about avoiding the realities of life and pretending they’re not there, but is actually a way of rising above what is trying to take us down. Here’s some truth worth remembering: The Prince of Peace has a plan, He is working His salvation purposes out, and He will be returning! So we can fix our thoughts on Him, talk to Him, and listen to Him, knowing that He is the source of life, of hope, and love. And He will keep us in perfect peace as we trust in Him! Amen👆🏼🙏🏼
