Daily D – Isaiah 26:3-4
Isaiah 26:3, 4 You will keep in perfect peace all who trust in you, all whose thoughts are fixed on you! Trust in the Lord always, for the Lord God is the eternal Rock. (NLT)
Isaiah 26:8 Lord, we show our trust in you by obeying your laws; our heart’s desire is to glorify your name. (NLT)
Peace in our time is possible. Peace in your heart is possible. Peace with others is possible.
Perfect peace is a matter of trust. It wells us within us when we focus on the reality of God’s presence, control, and love. It overflows when we trust him from the bottom of our hearts.
How is peace within us generated? Understanding God’s heart and mind and aligning and attuning ourselves with him is the answer to peace in our hearts, in our relationships, and in our world. In words you may have seen on a church sign, “Know God; know peace.”
This is an idea to mull over, to contemplate. It is a lifestyle to live. Peace takes root in us before it grows beyond us.
These are good verses to commit to memory, and more than memory, to heart.
I will live in peace as I learn to know and experience God more and more day by day.
Our Father, you are always at peace. I would like to join you there. I want peace with you, peace within me, peace around me, and peace through me. Make me a thoroughly peaceful person as I align and attune my heart and mind with yours. Amen.

Deuteronomy 8:12-18 When you eat and are full, and build beautiful houses to live in, and your herds and flocks grow large, and your silver and gold multiply, and everything else you have increases, be careful that your heart doesn’t become proud and you forget the Lord your God who brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the place of slavery. He led you through the great and terrible wilderness with its poisonous snakes and scorpions, a thirsty land where there was no water. He brought water out of the flint rock for you. He fed you in the wilderness with manna, which your ancestors had not known, in order to humble and test you, so that in the end he might cause you to prosper. You may say to yourself, ‘My power and my own ability have gained this wealth for me,’ but remember that the Lord your God gives you the power to gain wealth, in order to confirm his covenant he swore to your ancestors, as it is today.
Deuteronomy 6:4-9 “Listen, Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one. Love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your strength. These words that I am giving you today are to be in your heart. Repeat them to your children. Talk about them when you sit in your house and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up. Bind them as a sign on your hand and let them be a symbol on your forehead. Write them on the doorposts of your house and on your city gates.“
Deuteronomy 1:2, 3 It is an eleven-day journey from Horeb to Kadesh-barnea by way of Mount Seir. In the fortieth year, in the eleventh month, on the first of the month, Moses told the Israelites everything the Lord had commanded him to say to them.
