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.

Zechariah 13:9 “This third I will put into the fire; I will refine them like silver and test them like gold. They will call on my name and I will answer them; I will say, ‘They are my people,’ and they will say, ‘The Lord is our God.’ ”
Zechariah 9:9, 10 Rejoice greatly, Daughter Zion! Shout, Daughter Jerusalem! See, your king comes to you, righteous and victorious, lowly and riding on a donkey, on a colt, the foal of a donkey.

His rule will extend from sea to sea and from the River to the ends of the earth.
Ezra 3:12, 13 But many of the older priests and Levites and family heads, who had seen the former temple, wept aloud when they saw the foundation of this temple being laid, while many others shouted for joy. No one could distinguish the sound of the shouts of joy from the sound of weeping, because the people made so much noise. And the sound was heard far away.
Daniel 2:30 “As for me, this mystery has been revealed to me, not because I have greater wisdom than anyone else alive, but so that Your Majesty may know the interpretation and that you may understand what went through your mind.”
