Praise Now and Forever

Receive

Today's passage: Isaiah 26

You will keep in perfect peace him whose mind is steadfast, because he trusts in you. Trust in the LORD forever, for the LORD, the LORD, is the Rock eternal. Isaiah 26:3-4

Reflect

What do I feel when I read verses 1-15?

What are some ways I can live these verses?

Do I feel that perfect peace is possible in this world?

Have you ever met a person who seemed perfectly centered, focused, and at peace, even when the rest of the world seemed to be falling apart around them? More than likely, that person's mind, heart, and spirit were centered on God. We live in an unsettled, tumultuous time, in a world full of strife, suffering, pain, and grief. Despite this, inner peace and stability are possible, even in turmoil. When our hearts are in tune with God, and we are focused on His work in and purpose for our lives, we can proceed steadily and courageously through even the most painful circumstances. Peace is possible, and it begins in Him.

Respond

Ask for change: Lord, please guide my heart and mind toward You, so that the kind of peace that transcends all circumstances is possible through You.

Consider what's real: There are times in life when it's incredibly challenging to feel God's peace prevailing through our circumstances. If you're experiencing such a period right now, practice repeating a short but comforting verse, like Philippians 4:7 or John 14:1, as you walk through your day. Let the repetition of God's Word be a soothing balm for your weary heart.

Additional verses to consider: Philippians 4:4-7, John 14:1-4
