Isaiah 26:3 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. (amp.)
It can be very tempting for many of us to let our minds become occupied and consumed with the issues and troubles of life. We allow ourselves to dwell on things that steal our peace of mind.
Satan will bring storms, trouble and confusion to try and distract us and derail our destiny. He will do anything to cause us to lose sight of the future that God has for us. BUT, if we will keep our focus off our troubles and keep our mind "stayed" on our Father and His Word, no matter what is going on around us we will be in "perfect peace". Peace comes from living in harmony with God. When we keep our mind on Him we are keeping our mind on the source of all peace!!
Today, if you are like me and sometimes let your mind lose focus, let me encourage you to remember the words in Isaiah. If we will keep our mind "stayed" on Him He will keep us in peace no matter what is going on in the world around us.
