Isaiah 26:3-4 states (ESV):
“You keep him in perfect peace
whose mind is stayed on you,
because he trusts in you.
4Trust in the LORD forever,
for the LORD GOD is an everlasting rock.”
What a promise from the Lord!
We have to keep our minds focused upon Him! We need friends and loved ones to help us with this. We need the truth of God’s Word to do this. We must read it and meditate upon it daily to keep our minds on Him, but then here’s the awesome promise of God: He’ll give us peace! His peace, which is a fruit of the Holy Spirit (Gal. 5:22-23).
Doing our part to focus on Him enables us to better trust Him!
I’m convinced that the more we know God relationally, the more we will trust Him. That’s why biblical counseling is so powerful! What a message to tell people daily!
