A Steadfast Faith Produces Perfect Peace
There is a passage in the Psalms that reads, “Some trust in chariots and some in horses, but we trust in the name of the Lord our God” (Psalm 20:7). How often have we leaned upon the devices of men to gain a sure victory and discovered that what was promised as a “rock solid” venture was in fact an ill fated plan firmly placed upon shifting sand?
Over the years I have counseled many people who have come to tell me that they have lost their sense of inner peace. When I begin to ask questions about where their life has been lately I discover that things aren’t going well with their job, or their marriage is in disarray, or some other factors in their life are out of order. Then the source of the problem begins to surface.
The reason these people have lost their sense of inner peace is that they have been looking to human factors as the source of their peace. All of those human factors are shifting sand and cannot be counted on to give us the security that we need.
Isaiah reminds us that we can fully trust the Lord to be our Rock Eternal – Trust in Him with a steadfast mind and He will give you inner peace.
Prayer: Father, I tend to look at the things of this world to bring me satisfaction, but it never works. Grant me the grace to trust you as the rock at the center of my hope. In Jesus name, amen.
Message: God will keep in perfect peace him whose mind is steadfast, because he trusts in Him. Trust in the Lord forever for the Lord, the Lord, is the Rock Eternal. Perfect peace comes to those who have a steadfast faith.
Affirmation: I rejoice in the peace I have in Christ and He has enabled me to have a steadfast faith.
Reflection: Many people have lost their inner peace and don’t seem to know why. What are some of the things which can affect our peace? Peace with God gives us the confidence to trust Him to guide us to do the things we can do and trust Him to do the things we cannot do.
