3 You keep him in perfect peace
whose mind is stayed on you,
because he trusts in you.
4 Trust in the LORD forever,
for the LORD GOD is an everlasting rock. – Isaiah 26: 3 – 4
Last night me and Hilary sat down and read through Isaiah 26. She read it first, and to be honest with you, I didn’t hear even half of what she read. It wasn’t because I was ignoring her, but it was because my mind was literally being pulled in different directions. I even tried to make myself focus on what she was reading and it still wasn’t coming though. When she finished she asked me what those verses mean to me, and I had to tell her that honestly, I didn’t hear it. So, she handed me the bible and said “Ok, read it then.” I read the entire chapter, but the 2 verses above are the ones that really stuck out. I always hear people say “That verse just jumped out at me,” and I wonder why. Was it because that’s what they want to get out of the passage? Because maybe they can twist it to make it say what they want to hear? Or could it really be God trying to tell them something? Well, even if God was not specifically trying to tell me something (which I believe he was), these verses hit me because they fit into my life right now. They remind me that as long as I trust in God, and keep my focus right on him, he will take care of me and keep me in “perfect peace,” no matter how bad my eyes try to see it.
