Isaiah 26:3

“You will keep in perfect peace
    those whose minds are steadfast,
    because they trust in you.”


Peace is something that does not come naturally to our culture. There are many times that our current hardship outweighs the peace we feel. This verse reminds us that because we trust in the Lord, he will provide a peace for us that is unlike any other form of contentment the world might offer. Sometimes our minds can feel anything but “steadfast”. The good news is this: we have a steady and loving God we can put our trust in – it is in him, we find perfect peace.


Father, thank you for being the one things I can count on to steady my mind today. The peace you bring to my heart and mind, can only be found in the close proximity I have to you. Help me to continue to trust that you are working all things out for good. I love you, Amen.
