How to Receive Peace Over Our Circumstances

You keep him in perfect peace whose mind is stayed on you, because he trusts in you (ESV).

“You will keep in perfect and constant peace the one whose mind is steadfast [that is, committed and focused on You—in both inclination and character], Because he trusts and takes refuge in You [with hope and confident expectation]. (Amplified Bible)

Isaiah 26:3

We live in a time of great uncertainty.

The battles in Ukraine rage on, and nobody knows when it might stop.

The Covid situation – although improving in the West – is causing serious lockdowns in places like Shanghai, China.

Over in the US and Europe, rising inflation is causing many to wonder how they might be able to pay their bills and put food on their tables.

In the midst of all these difficulties and uncertainties, God in our only help.

Indeed, even in the midst of the storm, God promises ‘perfect peace’ to those whose minds are focused on Him (Isaiah 26:3).

Wouldn’t you like this peace? Ask God to give it to you:

Almighty God, only You and You alone are our help in these troubled times. We ask that as we look to You for help, may you grant us the peace that you have promised according to Your word. In Jesus name we pray; amen.
