“You will keep in perfect peace those whose minds are steadfast, because they trust in you.” Isaiah 26:3.
Verse chosen from today’s Bible reading; Isaiah 26-28 and Hebrews 13.
When I am troubled the cause is clear: I am not trusting completely in God to take care of things.
So often I want to handle my own affairs. “I’ve got this one,” I foolishly think.
I must be trusting God in all things; big and small.
I do not have the capacity to get things right without His help. Even when things appear to be “right” they aren’t.
When I trust God completely, I am not immune from difficulties. Think of the trouble that Paul got into. But even in trouble, he believed that it was the best thing that could happen to him. That’s trust in God!
My walk with God must be in very small steps. I can’t be jogging or running. The pace must be deliberately slow so that I don’t get away from Him.
Imagine the joy of being where He wants me to be. What else could I want?
“Lord, I love You. Forgive me for detaching myself from You. It is utter folly on my part. Lead me and guide me. I surrender to You now. I love You, Lord.”
So often I am unsettled because I go my own way. Perfect peace can only be found when I am doing what He wants me to do.
