You will 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
These verses have been on my heart this week. “…perfect peace… stayed on you… trusts in you…everlasting rock.”
Where has my mind been stayed? Where have my eyes been focused? Is it on my problem, my feelings, my plan? Am I looking to others for answers, reasons or hope? If I am not living in peace is it because I am trusting in someone or something other than the Everlasting Rock?
These words come as both a conviction and a comfort.
Lord, keep my mind stayed on you.
“Fear arises when we imagine that everything depends on us.”
