“Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee.”
During the holiday season there are many decorative signs, songs and displays that speak of peace on earth. Sadly, most in America don’t really have an inner peace.
The prophet Isaiah reminded his fellow countrymen believers that if they would stay focused on the Lord, the result would be peace. Having a settled spirit in the days we are facing doesn’t make any human sense. But our God is supernatural, and He is living inside us in the form of the Holy Spirit, so we can remain peaceful.
No matter what harsh circumstances may challenge our faith, peace grounded in Christ as found in the Bible can’t be broken. With the Father’s mighty hand protecting and providing for us, what reason do we have to be afraid or fretful?
We live in a world of conflict, and we often find ourselves suffering heartache. It’s easy to become obsessed about a situation and how it has disrupted our lives. But peace comes to our hearts as we doggedly refocus our minds back on the book!
Peace on Earth and Our Hearts,
Dr. Tim Pollock, Senior Pastor
