“Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee.”
No matter how the storm rages around you or how the struggle seems to weigh you down, you can have peace today by focusing your mind on the Lord. Not just any peace, perfect peace. Peace that this world cannot give.
His perfect peace surrounds us like a garrison around a city. He wants to protect us from anything that would do us harm.
“Those that trust in God must have their minds stayed upon him, must trust him at all times, under all events, must firmly and faithfully adhere to him, with an entire satisfaction in him; and such as do so God will keep in perpetual peace, and that peace shall keep them.” Matthew Henry
How do we obtain this perfect peace?
Only by fixing our heart and mind upon Him.
To have our minds stayed on Him refers to leaning on Him, resting in Him, refreshing and sustaining ourselves in Him.
Lean on His everlasting arms.
Rest in His sufficient grace.
Find refreshing through Him as the Fountain of living water.
Find sustenance through Him as the Bread of Life.
“And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.”
No peace can be found outside of Jesus.
