“Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace whose mind is stayed on thee.” Isa. 26:3,4
In this world we live in we certainly long for peace. But Satan has a way of playing mind games with us and taking away our joy and peace.
Reread the verse. It is a promise but with a condition. Yes, we can have peace, but our mind must be stayed (focused) on the Lord Jesus Christ.
Think of the lies Satan my be telling you right now, which are taking away your peace. Take time to search God’s Word (His truth) that will counter Satan’s lies. Let me give you some simple examples:
Satan says: “God has left you alone.”
God’s Word says: “Fear not, for I am with you…” Isa. 41:10
Satan says: “You aren’t going to make it.”
God’s Word says: “I can do all things through Christ Jesus my Lord.” Phil. 4:13
I may never know the answers to all of my WHY questions. But I can know God has been and is in control. I can’t change my circumstances, but I can know that I am in my sovereign God’s hands. I can trust Him. I can trust His Word.
