Isaiah 26:3 (NKJV)
You will keep him in perfect peace, Whose mind is stayed on You, Because he trusts in You.
This is a beautiful reassurance of God’s love, knowing that we can have peace through all of life’s circumstances. For this to happen we need to allow God to transform us from the inside out, by spending time with God and giving him our fears and worries.
Some questions come to mind when I think about applying this. Perhaps they are helpful for you to reflect on too. Do I give daily time to God to transform me and develop peace within me? Do I choose to bring my worries to God, or do I let them grow in my head?
Lord, thank you that you care about my life and the things I am concerned about. Thank you that you provide peace within me when I stay my mind on you. Please help me to trust you, to bring to you my stressed and worried thoughts. Please transform me into your likeness and develop peace within me.
