Isaiah 26:3 – Verse of the Day 1/25/15
It is hard enough to feel peace in modern America. Can you imagine what it would have felt like in ancient Israel when the Assyrian army threatened to overrun their country and homes? How could Isaiah tell the people that God would keep them in perfect peace?
This verse is even more shocking because it comes at the end of a passage that describes a terrible judgment. Even worse, the judgment was the result of Israel’s lack of faith. Even still, here we see that God mercifully promised to restore His people., and the perfect peace spoken of in this verse rightly belongs to any person who places their faith and trust in the one true God.
When life gets hard where do you turn for comfort? Do you seek peace by trusting in God alone, or do you look to some other source of comfort that cannot truly offer it? God promises to give us peace when we turn our minds on him, so spend some time asking God to help you trust Him to do that.
