Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee. Isaiah 26:3 (KJV)
The verse quoted above from Isaiah is also translated as “You will keep in perfect peace all who trust in you, all whose thoughts are fixed on you” (NLT) or “You will keep in perfect peace him whose mind is steadfast, because he trusts in you.” (NIV)
There is a consistency in these translations which is of note at this time of fear and anxiety for many – if you want peace of mind – you have to focus your mind steadfastly on Christ our Saviour and trust in Him.
There is a great hymn called “May the mind of Christ my Saviour” written by Kate Wilkinson, which speaks of the peace and triumph of focusing on Christ and absorbing His mind, thoughts and personality. Lyrics below.
Take time to focus you mind steadfastly on Christ today, meditating on the words below and letting God’s perfect peace enfold you.
