You will keep in perfect peace him whose mind is steadfast, because he trusts in you. (Isaiah 26:3)
In this world full of turmoil, perfect peace is a rarity and only achievable to those whose minds are steadfast and trusting in God. Those who do not trust in God are often crushed by the harsh realities of life and some take their own lives. But God loves them who trust in him and believe in the sin atoning sacrifice of his son Jesus Christ. He lives with them and his Holy Spirit encourages them despite failures, imperfections and tragedies.
The Bible says,
And hope does not disappoint us, because God has poured out his love into our hearts by the Holy Spirit, whom he has given us. (Romans 5:5)
What an amazing thing! God pours out his love into our hearts by the Holy Spirit.
The Prince of Peace, Jesus Christ, gives peace to them who trust in him.
As he told his disciples once,
Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid. (John 14:27)
Perfect peace does not mean a trouble free life; it means peace during the troubles of life.
Perfect peace is yours, if the Prince of Peace is your Savior.
