Isaiah 26:3 (Amplified Bible, Classic Tradition)
- You will guard him and keep him in perfect and constant peace whose mind [both its inclination and its character] is stayed on You, because he commits himself to You, leans on You, and hopes confidently in You.
God states in his word that he will guard us and keep us in perfect peace whose mind is stayed on him. Well, what does that mean? God is saying that if you keep your mind on him that he will be your sufficiency. He will be your very peace. So, when you face situations, tribulations, and disturbances in your life don’t lose your peace. God is saying that during your storm you can trust that the battle is already won, and he got your back. So, you don’t have to lose your peace you just have to trust him and speak his word, the word of God, back to him in your situation. God wants you to be still and know that he is God. He’s got everything in the palm of his hand. Keep your mind on him and he will give you peace and take care of the situation. He will lead and guide you through whatever storm that is trying to steal your peace. The word declares that even the winds and waves obey God and if he can calm the winds and waves in a storm, he can keep me in perfect peace in the midst of whatever storms I am facing. God will always honor his word. So today make this your declaration and decree that you will keep your mind fixed, stayed and focused on him through meditating on the word day and night, worship, praying/ communicating with him. And let the peace of God guard your heart and mind. The word declares that the mind set on the flesh is death, but the mind set on the spirit is life and peace. I need God to keep my mind in perfect peace so that I can handle situations that are thrown at me throughout the day. When I am walking in a peaceful state then I trust that God is working his good and perfect will into my life. God has plans to prosper us and not to harm us. So, this day let the peace of God guard your heart and mind as we stay fixated on him, who he is, and his goodness.
