Daily D – Isaiah 26:3-4
You will keep the mind that is dependent on you in perfect peace, for it is trusting in you. Trust in the LORD forever, because the LORD, the LORD himself, is an everlasting rock!
ISAIAH 26:3-4 (CSB)
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.
(New Living Translation)
A word spoken at the right time
is like gold apples in silver settings.
Weariness and grief wear down souls. Every heart knows its own burden.
Into the gathering gloom, God speaks words of truth and life, strength and hope. This text from Isaiah reminds us of Proverbs 3:5, 6:
and do not rely on your own understanding;
in all your ways know him,
and he will make your paths straight.
The Message paraphrases these verses this way:
don’t try to figure out everything on your own.
Listen for GOD’s voice in everything you do, everywhere you go;
he’s the one who will keep you on track.
These are good reminders for gloomy days. Should the day break bright and fair tomorrow, they will remain timely reminders. In our best days and on our worst, God is God and God is good. His peace is present for all who trust him.
You may not need these reminders today. File them away where you can retrieve them when you do need them. Into every life falls a little rain. Into every soul creeps a little gloom. Our Father in heaven wants us to remember that he transcends the gloom and damp. He wants us to know and experience him in our discomfort and grief.
Today is a good day to practice God’s presence and to depend upon his peace.
I will trust God from the bottom of my heart.
Our Father, I trust you. Thank you for your presence and your peace. Amen.

Leviticus 19:32-34 “Stand up in the presence of the elderly, and show respect for the aged. Fear your God. I am the Lord. “Do not take advantage of foreigners who live among you in your land. Treat them like native-born Israelites, and love them as you love yourself. Remember that you were once foreigners living in the land of Egypt. I am the Lord your God.”
Luke 6:27-31 “But to you who are willing to listen, I say, love your enemies! Do good to those who hate you. Bless those who curse you. Pray for those who hurt you. If someone slaps you on one cheek, offer the other cheek also. If someone demands your coat, offer your shirt also. Give to anyone who asks; and when things are taken away from you, don’t try to get them back. Do to others as you would like them to do to you.”
