Scripture Memorization Challenge: God’s Peace (Week 45)
This week’s Scripture is Isaiah 26:3 (KJV):
Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee.
Trust isn’t something that comes easy to me. As a matter of fact, my personality is pretty much programmed to trust very few people. I had to learn in my walk with God to let go of the fleshly impulses to base my trust off of what I could see and allow myself to fall freely into the arms of my Savior. And from the very first moment I let all of my inhibition go – I felt the peace of God.
In my experience, there is nothing that can compare to God’s peace. Nothing at all. No amount of material things, worldly accolades, nor human companionship is like the peace of God. While the amazing family I’ve been blessed with and the love we share comes at a close second – God’s peace still trumps everything.
Peace in Hebrew is shalom. Shalom means “nothing missing nothing broken”. In other words, God’s peace is the absolute fulfillment of our human mind, body, and soul. And the fact that His word promises us that if we focus on Him and trust in Him that He will keep us in perfect peace is absolutely astounding. I encourage you (as I encourage myself) to do whatever you need to to keep Jesus at the forefront of your thoughts keeping Him and His word as the crux of your life. And in doing so you will walk in His peace – and when we are at peace we trust in knowing that everything is going to be all right.
Commit this verse to memory.
Do you have God’s peace as a regular part of your life? If so, continue to focus on Him to remain at peace. If not, make it a point this week to meditate on this Scripture and keep Jesus as the first thing you focus on when you wake up, throughout the day, and before you go to sleep. Watch as God’s peace will fill your heart and mind making the everyday stresses of life seem minuscule.
Pray for God’s peace to infiltrate everywhere you go. Peace can lead you in your day-to-day life as well as minister to those around you.
