Perfect Peace

Isaiah 26:3-4 (ESV) reminds us, “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.” Unpacking this passage reveals that “perfect peace” results from focusing our minds and trust on the Lord.

The emphasis here is not on our ability to focus and trust, but on the character and nature of God. Namely, He is trustworthy and He is our “everlasting rock.” The fact that God is our “everlasting rock” speaks to the permanence of His ability to shelter us and provide a firm foundation regardless of the storms that assail us. That He is trustworthy, or worthy of our trust, speaks to His desire to keep us in His perfect peace. We need to know that He is not only able but willing to help us.

But we are not passive in acquiring perfect peace. We direct our minds to the Lord and stay focused on Him. We trust Him, looking to Him for every need including the “perfect peace” that we desire. Our work in securing this “perfect peace” is not like the struggle of a person rowing against the wind and waves. Our work is more like the person who adjusts their sail to catch the wind and be carried along by God’s grace.

Jesus explained, “I have said these things to you, that in me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation. But take heart; I have overcome the world.” (John 16:33)
