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.

Jonah 4:2, 3 So he complained to the Lord about it: “Didn’t I say before I left home that you would do this, Lord? That is why I ran away to Tarshish! I knew that you are a merciful and compassionate God, slow to get angry and filled with unfailing love. You are eager to turn back from destroying people. Just kill me now, Lord! I’d rather be dead than alive if what I predicted will not happen.”
Joel 2:12, 13 That is why the Lord says, “Turn to me now, while there is time. Give me your hearts. Come with fasting, weeping, and mourning. Don’t tear your clothing in your grief, but tear your hearts instead.” Return to the Lord your God, for he is merciful and compassionate, slow to get angry and filled with unfailing love. He is eager to relent and not punish.”
Hosea 14:8, 9 “O Israel, stay away from idols! I am the one who answers your prayers and cares for you. I am like a tree that is always green; all your fruit comes from me.” Let those who are wise understand these things. Let those with discernment listen carefully. The paths of the Lord are true and right, and righteous people live by walking in them. But in those paths sinners stumble and fall.”
