You will keep in perfect peace all who trust in you, all whose thoughts are fixed on you! Isaiah 26:3 NLT
Perfect peace can’t be found in a sunset, a vacation or even a song. Perfect peace is found only when we step into the presence of the God who loves us. When we fix our gaze on Him and place our hand in His hand, the whole world could be falling apart around us, but He will shelter us.
I’m reminded of the verse in Psalm 91 that says, “A thousand may fall at your side and ten thousand at your right hand, but it will not come near you.” We’ll be in full view of it, but that trust we have in God, takes all fear away.
When we stand under the umbrella of trust, everything changes. It could be a torrential downpour, but we won’t even get wet. When I begin to feel the water, I snug myself up under His sheltering arm where I remain safe and dry.
It’s not easy to trust in something unseen when the things that are seen are blazingly in your face. It’s a practiced thing, knowing that each time I do, it gets easier and easier to do it the next time. It’s not that I won’t face problems, I won’t be discouraged or hurt or in pain, it’s that I can’t do a thing about it so I may as well walk myself back under His shelter and trust in His ability rather than mine!
Be At Peace,
