The Difficult Search for Perfect Peace

Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee; because he trusteth in thee.
Isaiah 26:3

There is a promise that is guaranteed to those who are in convenant with God, and that is ultimate peace. Our only prerequisite is that we keep our minds stable and consistently focused on His goodness, His grace, His faithfulness, His ability and His power.

As long as we are in the flesh we will encounter tribulations. These tribulations will range in intensity and sometimes occur during the most unexpected times in our lives. However, regardless of when they occur and how small or large they may be, God promises to keep us in perfect peace. When our minds tell us that we cannot endure the pressure of what we may be experiencing, God’s power will take over for us and make a divine interruption to replace intense fear and anxiety with peace and divine tranquility. Why? Because we have already demonstrated that we trust Him.

Once that trust relationship has been established, when the storms of life come to disturb God’s people – those of us who are believers – we will be surprisingly overwhelmed with an unnatural peace that can only come from God. This kind of blessing is a reward for putting our trust in Him and consistently demonstrating trust in Him, while simultaneously training our minds to stay focused on the things of God until it becomes second nature. The peace that will be awarded to those who belong to Him is inner peace, outer peace, physical peace, spiritual peace, social peace and economic peace.

In a world completed disturbed by unrest, those who trust God will have grace and peace that will accompany them in any situation. God’s grace and peace will provide strength, power and favor to endure the challenge, the overcome it victoriously.

Prayer: Now may the grace of our God grant those of us who are in convenant with Him protection from the residue that trials and tribulations leave behind. May we receive God’s consistent, triumphant and perfect peace, as well as victory in the midst of life’s storms, according to our faith in God. In Jesus’ name we pray. Amen

    Awesome article for we are living in some alarming times as indicated. So many are suffering with anxiety in the church. I believe more than ever we need to continue to encourage one another. There is no better way than knowing that as a child of the Most High God, He will keep us in perfect peace, when our mind is stayed on Him. As we continue to put our trust in God, this scripture gives us the assurance, come what may from day to day, GOD IS STILL IN CONTROL.
