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.
(Proverbs 25:11)

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:

Trust in the LORD with all your heart,
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:

Trust GOD from the bottom of your heart;
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.

Our Father, I trust you. Thank you for your presence and your peace. Amen.

And I will establish the throne of his kingdom over Israel forever.’ “Now, my son, the Lord be with you, and may you have success and build the house of the Lord your God, as he said you would. May the Lord give you discretion and understanding when he puts you in command over Israel, so that you may keep the law of the Lord your God. Then you will have success if you are careful to observe the decrees and laws that the Lord gave Moses for Israel. Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or discouraged.”
