While tucked away on vacation, staring out at this waterfront view, a verse from the book of Isaiah started to bother me.
You will keep in perfect peace those whose minds are steadfast,
because they trust in you.
Doesn’t it seem like ‘those whose minds are steadfast’ will already have peace? Which then implies that it’s possible for us keep ourselves at peace. Which I don’t think is true.
(Mulling it over.)
This is a logical statement. There is an “if this, then that” relationship happening. The logic is this: if I am trusting You, God, my mind will be steadfast AND You will keep me in perfect peace.
Trust links these things together. Trust… unwavering, unshakeable confidence… resting in the fact that God is in control.
Maybe when I trust, my mind won’t be filled with worrisome ‘what-if’s.’
If I trust this way, my heart will not waver. My HEART will not waver. So I would have both a steadfast MIND and an unwavering HEART.
That would be new.
What would I spend my time thinking about if I wasn’t buried in “what if”?
