This week’s memory verse from Called and Created’s Bible Reading and Memorization Plan is Isaiah 26:3. It says that God will keep in perfect peace those whose minds are steadfast, because their trust is in Him.
Are you ever worried? Anxious? Do you ever feel like your mind is racing at the speed of a thousand miles per hour? God promises to keep in perfect peace those whose minds are stayed on Him. As we focus on our Heavenly Father – how much He loves and cares for us, and how He is able to do far more than we could ever ask or think (Ephesians 3:20-21) – we will begin to experience the peace He wants for us.
In Philippians 4:6, we are told to be anxious for nothing, but in everything, to present our requests to God. The more we begin to trust in Him with whatever is causing us worry, the more our minds will be at rest, knowing that He will accomplish for us and through us what we can’t accomplish on our own.
Those whose minds are steadfast, because they trust in God, will be kept in perfect peace. Know that He is more than able to handle anything life may throw your way. Learn to trust in Him at all times, and begin to walk in the peace that He has for you!
