“You will keep in perfect and constant peace the one whose mind is steadfast ( that is committed and focused on You– in both inclination and character), because he trusts and takes refuge in You ( with hope and confident expectation)” Isaiah 26:3 Amplified
“People with their minds set on you, you keep completely whole. Steady on their feet, because they keep at it and don’t quit. Depend on God and keep at it because in the LORD GOD you have a sure thing.” Isaiah 26:3 Message
“You will keep in perfect peace all who trust in you, all whose thoughts are fixed on you!” Isaiah 26:3 New Living Translation
God is telling us that the only way to peace is to keep our minds stayed on Him. Chaos, lawlessness and fear are bombarding our minds constantly. God is telling us to keep our thoughts on Him.
His perfect peace is gained by renewing our minds through reading the Bible and communing with God and by being in His presence. Time alone with God and his word is essential. Time when there are no distractions and the house is silent and it’s just you and God.
When you are in His presence and reading the Bible certain scriptures will pop out and you may underline them. Write one or two on a small paper and carry them with you. Also, put them on the refrigerator or one your bathroom mirror. Carry them in your pocket. Look at them throughout the day, repeat them out loud and memorize them. Declare them over your life and over your family and city. Put them in your heart.
We must continually interact with the Spirit of God by meditating on the word of God and memorizing the word of God.
When stressfull times come we can easily recall that word to receive peace and hide ourselves in him.
