“You will keep in perfect peace those whose minds are steadfast, because they trust in You. Trust in the LORD forever, for the LORD, the LORD Himself, is the Rock Eternal.”
This passage tells us that God will keep us in “perfect peace” if our minds are “stayed” on Him, This means that our minds are leaning on God, centered on Him, and trusting in Him. Our degree of perfect or imperfect peace is dependent on to what degree our mind is “stayed” on God rather than ourselves or on our problems.
We experience peace as we believe what the Bible says about God’s nearness and about His goodness and power, His mercy and love for His children, and His complete sovereignty over all of life’s circumstances. But we can’t trust someone we don’t know, and it is crucial, therefore, to come to know personally through Jesus Christ.
In every trial, during every storm, know that God desires you have perfect peace before it, in it, and after God has accomplished His purposes.
“I have told you these things, so that in Me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.” (1 John 16:33)
We can experience God’s peace in prayer. Philippians 4:6-7 says to: “Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus”.
I pray that God would give you perfect peace in whatever trial you’re going into or are in the middle of. Pray that God will help you to be steadfast, immovable in it. Trust in the Lord forever for the LORD, the LORD Himself is the Rock. Don’t let your heart be troubled. Don’t let it be afraid. Trust God. https://youtu.be/lcKLh-F_nYg
