Perfect Peace



Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace,
whose mind is stayed on thee:
because he trusteth in thee.

Trust ye in the LORD for ever:
for in the LORD JEHOVAH is everlasting strength.

Isaiah 26:3-4


Such great comfort comes from the Word of God. Oh to have this treasure in our midst! To be able to handle the Word of God and comprehend the vast promises and hope. Partakers of his divine Grace!!

There are so many needs in this time of our lives...and God knows all of them. Not one hair of our head is not known! Imagine...the God of all creation, cares this much about you and me. One hair does not fall that he is not aware of!

How sweet to know that God sees Haddie in her youth with her hair falling out due to Chemo, he will comfort her in this affliction...so many others going through this very trial. I have a friend with colon cancer, who has been going through treatments for the past two years. Oh, how I pray for her salvation and for her to know this wonderful PEACE that passeth all understanding! Please pray for her.

My husband goes to the Orthopedic doctor tomorrow morning to find out what the MRI shows of his injury.

Many of you also have great needs of your own, friends, loved ones. God knows them all.

An elderly man in our church is also going through Chemo for a brain tumor. He is witnessing to a long time friend..perhaps in his affliction of cancer, his friend will see this peace found in salvation.

This comfort and peace come from God's WORD! Keeping our mind...stayed on HIM, by reading the Bible! A letter of LOVE from the very source of LOVE! What greater gift than to know you hold it in your hands! Never neglect this time. Never forsake the moments of thought that will keep your heart steadfast upon HIS ways.

Verse 4 says...trust in the LORD forever!!! it is to never stop! and it says...
for he is everlasting strength!

This is that peace. Our trust in HIM forever. We are saved and sealed. Forever in His care.

Always remember that HIS ways are perfect. Nothing happens without his knowledge.
Therefore...we can trust...have peace....and know...

THAT HE IS GOD.

For thou hast been a strength to the poor, a strength to the needy in his distress, a refuge from the storm....

Isaiah 25:4


The LORD is good, a strong hold in the day of trouble; and he knoweth them that trust in him.
Nahum 1:7


THIS IS THE DAY...peace rest within my soul as I bring these petitions before my God, the LORD Jesus Christ..and know, he hears me and HIS way is perfect; therefore I can trust and not be afraid. I can rest and know...HE IS MY GOD!!

...and wait patiently on the good work that will be done.
