“You will keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on You, because he trusts in You.”

Isaiah 26:3

This verse says that God will keep you in peace (not just plant you there one time, but keep you there continually) if you focus (stay) your mind on him.

Why?

Because He alone is trustworthy.

We get ourselves into trouble when we focus on other things – the mortgage payment is due, the constant threat of job loss, a health scare – can all rob us of our peace.

It is possible to have God’s peace in the midst of trials.

The secret is to focus not on the burden, but the burden-bearer, God Himself.

When we discipline ourselves to do that, our problems start to seem really small.
