Isaiah 26:3 says, “You will keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on You, because he trusts in You.” This is a comforting scripture, especially in a time like this. The term perfect peace shows the intensity of the peace that God intends to give. It’s not just peace. It is peace multiplied. It is peace that allows us to walk through difficult situations without falling apart. It is God’s perfect peace. But the verse also teaches this kind of peace only comes when we focus our minds on the Lord. If you want perfect peace, you’ve got to keep your mind focused on The One who gives perfect peace. Whatever comes – let’s train our minds to focus on the Lord so that we can receive His perfect peace.
