You will keep him in perfect peace,
Whose mind is stayed on You,
Because he trusts in You.
—Isaiah 26:3 (NKJV)
When I place every thought on you, Lord, I receive your gift of perfect peace. I trust you. I am safe in you. I have no fear in you. What I see or feel or experience in this physical world is not what is real in your Kingdom within me. What is real within me is you. And I trust you. I have confident hope and believe when I surrender my mind to you, you guard my thoughts. I think of only what is true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report. If there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy—I meditate on these things. You bring rest to my mind and joy to my heart. I trust your goodness and healing mercy—not how I feel or what the world says is true. You are real. Pain fades. Doubt fades. Circumstances fade. I am healed and at peace in you.
