Isaiah 26:3 “You will keep in perfect peace all who trust in You, all whose thoughts are fixed on You!”
With everything happening in the world, bombings, terrorist attacks, health issues, toxins in the environment, relationship issues, work stresses, etc there are many reasons to be filled with fear and anxiety. But the Bible says that you can stay in perfect peace in spite of anything happening around you. How? By keeping your thoughts fixed on God’s Word; and that’s the way to stay trusting in God. For example, when you need to go somewhere and you’re not sure about the safety of the place think: He orders His angels to protect me wherever I go (Ps91:11). When facing a health issue: the same Spirit Who raised Jesus from the dead lives in me, and gives life to my body (Rom8:11). Whatever situation it may be, ask the Holy Spirit to give you the promise and to make it come alive in your heart. God gives His promises we can hold onto to get us through to victory. That’s why it’s important for us to know that He cannot lie and that He watches over His Word to perform it. Train your mind to think God’s Word rather than fearful thoughts.
“I will keep my mind fixed on You, Jesus. You are the One Who will keep me in perfect peace. Amen!”
