“You keep him in perfect peace whose mind is stayed on you, because he trusts in you” (Is 26:3).

There is much in the world – in our everyday experiences – that causes us anxiety.  There is much that shakes our certainty – that makes us fearful.  Through the prophet Isaiah, the Lord in this verse tells us where we are to go to find peace.  We find peace in him.  God is our unchanging anchor in the storm.  He is our refuge and strength.  As our mind is stayed on the Lord – that is, as we commune by faith with our God and Savior Jesus Christ, we will know the true and only sure peace.  And this peace the world does not know and could never give.  May our hearts and minds find their rest in the character and the word of our great God this day.  And may the peace of God guard our hearts and minds.
