Perfect Peace – Isa 25-26

Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, Whose mind is stayed on thee: Because he trusteth in thee. Trust ye in the Lord for ever: For in the Lord JEHOVAH is everlasting strength:” 

Perfect peace. Something we all want. Something few find. Something that only comes through staying our minds on the Lord. Only He is worthy of our trust, and only He is source of everlasting peace (Isa 26:3-4).

What a great truth this was for Israel as they faced a time of great upheaval in the world around them and as they faced times of great tribulation in the end. And what a great truth this is for us today.

The Lord is a God we can trust. He is the One we should exalt and praise (25:1). He will be a strength to the needy and the poor. He will be a refuge from every storm and shadow (v.4). He will swallow up death in victory and wipe away all tears (v.8). He is worthy of waiting on (v.9). He will ordain peace for Israel (26:12) and for all who trust in Him.

So, where is there turmoil and fear in your life and heart? Where is there frustration and doubt? Look to the everlasting, Almighty, and perfect Prince of Peace. He can bring peace in the midst of the storm to You.
