Tomorrow morning I’ll say goodbye to my mom and head back home not knowing when I’ll see her again. My emotions threaten to take me down a sorry path, but I refuse to go there. Instead, I choose to focus on the character of God and on His promises. I’ve found this is the only path to true and lasting peace.
I need God’s peace in this situation. Maybe you can relate. You’re in a tough situation and need a healthy dose of lasting peace, too. If so, take a few moments to read God’s encouragement to you.
“You will keep him in perfect peace, Whose mind is stayed on You, Because he trusts in You. Trust in the Lord forever, For in Yah, the Lord, is everlasting strength.” (Isaiah 26:3-4NKJV)
Now read it again. This time make it a personal prayer, like this: “You will keep me in perfect peace when I keep my mind on You. I trust in You forever because You are everlasting strength.”
Meditate on it.
Put it into practice.
And you will experience peace that passes human understanding.
Know you are loved,
