One of my favorite verses of Scripture is Isaiah 26:3.  I like to look at it in different Bibles.  It reads as follows:

“Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee:  because he trusteth in Thee." - KJV

“You will guard him and keep in perfect and constant peace whose mind [both its inclination and its character] is stayed on You, because he commits himself to You, leans on You, and hopes confidently in You." - 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." - The Message

We live in a world full of turmoil.  This turmoil has even reached the church today.  I believe Satan knows if he can keep the Christians in turmoil in their own lives, he can effectively render the church powerless.  You see when we are in turmoil Satan wins!  

Every believer is afforded the opportunity of having this "perfect peace".  This is a peace that comes only from God.  It's that peace that passes all understanding.  It's that peace a child of God can have even in the midst of the valley.  It's that peace the child of God can have in the midst of heartache.  It's the peace the child of God can have that truly astounds those around him/her.  It's what makes others say, "I want what they have!"

The implication in this verse is that those whose mind is fully fixated and focused on God to the point that all trust is put in Him will be kept in perfect peace by our Heavenly Father.  Wow!  I don't know about you, but I find that to be encouraging.  As I like to say, "That's enough to make me wanna shout!"

Do you have this kind of peace in your life?  If you're a believer this is available to you.  You can and should have it.  Focus the whole of your being on God, fix your thoughts on Him, trust Him and He will keep you in perfect peace.  

Until next time, enjoy the journey!
