Peace Perfect Peace by Don Salmon
May 14, 2015

It used to be there was no shopping on Sundays.  Do you remember that?  No one jumping in the car to run to the grocery store, no one dashing out to the mall for something they forgot they needed for Monday. It was a time of families getting together, relaxing, in peace.

OK, so that was a long time ago, but when was the last time you experienced peace? 

You keep him in perfect peace
whose mind is stayed on you,
because he trusts in you.
Trust in the LORD forever,
for the LORD GOD is an everlasting rock.

Isaiah 26:3-4 is telling us that God will keep those whose minds are focussed on Him in perfect peace.  Why? Because when we really keep our relationship with God first and foremost in our minds, we trust Him and therefore we don't worry about the small stuff.

It's like the song says....

Peace, perfect peace, in this dark world of sin?
The blood of Jesus whispers peace within.

Peace, perfect peace, by thronging duties pressed?
To do the will of Jesus, this is rest.

Peace, perfect peace, with sorrows surging round?
On Jesus’ bosom naught but calm is found.

Peace, perfect peace, with loved ones far away?
In Jesus’ keeping we are safe, and they.

Peace, perfect peace, our future all unknown?
Jesus we know, and He is on the throne.

Peace, perfect peace, death shadowing us and ours?
Jesus has vanquished death and all its powers.

It is enough: earth’s struggles soon shall cease,
And Jesus call us to Heaven’s perfect peace.

Want perfect peace?  Focus your mind on Christ and it'll come.  It'll come.
