He will keep in perfect peace all who trust in him, whose thoughts turn often to the Lord! Trust in the Lord God always, for in the Lord Jehovah is your everlasting strength.
This would have to be one of my top ten verses of all time! It is a beautiful promise from the Lord…….you choose to trust Him, in return you get perfect peace.
Not a peace that comes and goes, like the changing tides. No. Perfect peace. Consistent. Even-keeled. A certainty.
When this world is full of trouble, turmoil and chaos, we have at our fingertips the offer of perfect peace.
When we can’t see the path before us, we can still have perfect peace.
When people hurt us, and harsh words are spoken. When family units dissolve and sickness strikes. When bills pile up, cars break down and the expectations of others and obligations get all too much, we can still have peace. Perfect peace.
If we trust in the Lord always, then the Lord will be our everlasting strength. Though our flesh is weak, in and through Him we can have the strength to face whatever comes our way.
Sounds like a sweet deal. I’m in. Who’s with me?
