PEACE ONLY THROUGH OUR LORD!
O LORD, you are my God; I will exalt you; I will praise your name, for you have done wonderful things, plans formed of old, faithful and sure. —Isaiah 25:1
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
Is the Lord your God? Have you called upon Him to save you from your sin and to a relationship with Him? If so, praise His Name. He has done wonderful things and He will do wonderful things. The plans that He has are from old. His plans for you are from old! You can be sure that all that He has planned out will be done. The plans He has, which include you, are faithful and sure. You can trust 100% that what He says He will do and what He has planned He will do will come to pass!
You want peace? Keep your mind fixed on Jesus. We are told to do this in Hebrews 12:1-2 as we consider the witnesses that went before us, throw off the weights and sin that hinders us and as we run the race with perseverance. Peace comes when we trust our Lord God Almighty. He is an everlasting Rock, our Firm Foundation that is forever solid. Let us stand upon Him and we will have that peace that the world cannot offer— “Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid” (John 14:7). Yes, let us trust His plans of old, keep our mind and eyes fixed on Him and well be on that firm foundation that gives us peace.
Dear Father I am so grateful to have peace in the midst of a world in turmoil. Thank You for this wonderful gift… the gift of Jesus who gives us peace as we focus on Him and His will. May I do so continually and experience this peace that only You can give. Yes, may this be so in the power of Your Holy Spirit and in the authority of Jesus. So be it! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9f2FXxDVO6w
