Fruit of the Spirit, Peace

Perfect Peace

Isaiah 26:3

You will keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on you, because he trusts in you.

Do you find it easy to trust people or do past events and situations cause you to mistrust everyone? They say that trust is earned, so when someone makes good on a promise you feel more confident that they are true to their word. Unfortunately, when trust is violated it affects nearly all future relationships. Living in a constant state of mistrust can be exhausting, causing anxiety and sometimes leading to isolation. This is not how God wants you to live.

Here is the good news, ‘God is not a man, that he should lie… has he said, and will he not do it? Or has he spoken, and will he not fulfil it?’ (Num.23). Be assured, ‘Every word of God proves true’ (Prov.30), so you can trust Him completely with all your fears and doubts. I would encourage you to take a few minutes every day to clear your mind of all the clutter and focus wholly on Him. Recite a verse that is personal to you and brings a sense of calm. Repeat it two or three times over until you become aware of His presence surrounding you and filling you. Then, let Him keep you in perfect peace and let it be evident to those around. Your day will be a little bit easier when you carry His peace with you.

Trust. Focus. Receive.
