Isaiah 26:3 (KJV)
September 9, 2015, 12:00 AM

"Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee." Isaiah 26:3 (KJV)

Have you ever really thought about what "perfect peace" is? How can we be in perfect peace in a world with all the uncertainty and challenges; the politicians remind us regularly of how bad and risky things are? None of us are permanent residents, but rather travelers to eternity. That brings its own uncertainty and fear. Good things happen to "bad" people and bad things happen to "good" people; the scripture tells us the rain falls on the just and unjust.

But, based on the scripture, there is a case for perfect peace! If your sins have been forgiven and God is in your heart, it is possible to keep your heart stayed on him. We can gain the perspective that we are a servant to the best Master a servant can have. He loved us enough to offer his Son as a sacrifice for our sin. He has given us all things that pertain to life and godliness. He knows us better than we know ourselves (Psalms 139), He knows the future, He loves us and suffers from absolutely no earthly limits.  "For the eyes of the Lord run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to show himself strong on the behalf of them whose heart is perfect toward him" (2 Chr 16:9) . We're instructed to "Bring ye all the tithes into the storehouse, that there may be meat in mine house, and prove me now herewith, saith the Lord of hosts, if I will not open you the windows of heaven, and pour you out a blessing, that there shall not be room enough to receive it" (Malachi 3:10).

So today, I want to examine myself to make sure I've brought all the tithes of my heart to him, to make sure He is ruling the throne of my heart, and then to live in the peace that He has as He pours the blessing I can't receive.
