Strengthen and Encourage the Brethren 07/03/11

This week’s scripture is from Isaiah:

“You will keep in perfect peace
   those whose minds are steadfast,
   because they trust in you.
Trust in the LORD forever,
   for the LORD, the LORD himself, is the Rock eternal.”
 (Isaiah 26:3-4)

Each day has troubles and challenges of its own, Jesus reminded us, and it is all too easy to be in turmoil trying to deal with the situations and problems that keep peace from our door. Yet the Lord tells us that we should not dwell on problems and challenges, but we should keep our minds on Him, we should place all of our trust in Him no matter what is happening in the world or in our own lives, for only in Him, and in Him alone, is there peace. We must allow our heart to trust Him and our mind to be steadfast, for He who loves us and gave Himself for us is He who is able, who is for us, who is forever, eternal, who can make a way when there is no way, our Lord, our Savior, our Deliverer. Praise His Holy Name.

May your heart and mind remain steadfast because you are trusting in the Lord.
