“You keep him in perfect peace whose mind is stayed on you, because he trusts in you. Trust in the Lord forever, for the Lord God is an everlasting rock.” Isaiah 26:3-4 ESV
How can we continue to be at peace in our lives with so much going on? One way that God will keep us in perfect peace is if we will have our minds “stayed” on Him. As we all continue to abide by the “stay at home” directive during this COVID-19 quarantine, we see that as our bodies stay at home – our minds should be stayed on the Lord!
We may be constricted in our movements right now…but our minds are not! We should not let our minds be constricted with all of the fears, predictions, and negativity going on around us. We are to keep our minds focused on the Lord!
And why do we choose to keep our minds stayed/focused on the Lord? Because we trust in Him! The Lord is faithful and loving. He is above every disease, every virus, every problem, every challenge. He already knows the answer and solution to every question we have. He will never leave or forsake us. He is our everlasting rock on which we can stand with both feet planted and know that we are safe. The “storm” may rage around us…but we are held on a firm foundation! HALLELUJAH!!
TRUST IN THE LORD FOREVER! KEEP YOUR MIND STAYED ON HIM! BE IN HIS PERFECT PEACE!
May the Lord of peace Himself continually grant you peace in every circumstance. The Lord be with you all!
2 Thessalonians 3:16 NASB
