We are given a wonderful promise in Isaiah 26:3,4: “You will keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on you: because he trusts in you. Trust in the Lord forever: for in the Lord Jehovah is everlasting strength.”
Perfect peace. Even in the midst of chaos and turmoil, this promise holds true. The reason is the source of this perfect peace. It comes to us from the One who is declared to be the “everlasting strength” or literally the “rock of ages.” How comforting to know that in a world where everything seems to be shaking and shifting, the Christian can stay his mind upon the Rock of Ages. He is the changeless and eternal One. Within the cleft of that Rock is perfect peace.
There is one requirement, however, for our receiving this peace. Our minds must be stayed on Him. It is within the area of our thoughts and imaginations that unrest, turmoil, and fear begin, but to stay our minds upon Jehovah is to know perfect peace and rest.
Satan knows that a victorious Christian is one whose mind is centered upon God and His Word. He attempts to gain control by filling our minds with his deceits. Set your mind on the truth of God as revealed in His Word. He is everlasting strength. He is the source of perfect peace.
