In Perfect Peace
In Perfect Peace
In this world of turmoil and problems of every sort, there are all sorts of books, blog sites, etc. promoting transcendental meditation as a means of quieting one’s mind and attaining peace. But, an honest peace and assurance is not found in gurus of any sort or the meditation practices of heathen religions.
The LORD God Almighty is the only God who has proven His word by fulfilling many prophecies regarding our Savior, Christ Jesus. Therefore, it is good to consider Isaiah 26:3-4,
The steadfast of mind You will keep in perfect peace,
Because he trusts in You.
Trust in the LORD forever,
For in GOD the LORD, we have an everlasting Rock.
God keeps our hearts and minds “in perfect peace”, when we keep our minds and faith in Him. We simply study His word to us and practice what God teaches us about our Savior and His gifts of forgiveness and eternal life. We approach the LORD in truth and faith. There is no need for mantras or rituals of any sort
It’s as Jesus says in John 4:24,
God is spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth.
In this world of many religions, we need to remember Bible verses like,
All the ways of a man are clean in his own sight,
But the LORD weighs the motives. Proverbs 16:2
There is a way which seems right to a man,
But its end is the way of death. Proverbs 16:25
The ways of heathens always lead to “death” because they simply are not of God’s eternal truth. So, in reverence, we listen to Acts 4:12,
And there is salvation in no one else; for there is no other name under heaven that has been given among men by which we must be saved.
This is a great comfort. There is only one LORD and God — not many. At peace in that “perfect peace”, we say, “Hallelujah! LORD, thank You for telling us to ‘be still, and know that I am God’. That truth is forever.”
A Christian devotional to glorify the LORD of lords and GOD of gods.
Pray for our country.
The LORD made this day, let us rejoice and be glad in Him.
The word of the LORD is tried;
He is a shield to all who take refuge in Him.
Sing for joy in the LORD, O you righteous ones;
Praise is becoming to the upright.
How blessed are those who dwell in Thy house!
They are ever praising Thee.
Just as a father has compassion on his children,
So the LORD has compassion on those who fear Him.
O give thanks to the LORD, for He is good;
For His lovingkindness is everlasting.
Glory in His holy name;
Let the heart of those who seek the LORD be glad.
Not that I have already obtained it, or have already become perfect, but I press on in order that I may lay hold of that for which also I was laid hold of by Christ Jesus.
