“You will keep him in perfect peace, Whose mind is stayed on You, Because he trusts in You. Trust in the LORD forever, For in YAH, the LORD, is everlasting strength.”Isaiah 26:3-4 NKJV
If we desire God’s perfect peace in every area of our lives then our minds must be focused upon Him. This is accomplished as we spend time on personal prayer and the study of God’s word. As we read and study God’s word, we meditate upon God’s word. As we meditate upon His word our minds are stayed upon the Lord.
The battle we face on a daily basis is in our minds. The enemy will bombard us with thoughts that are contrary to God’s word. But we will never overcome the lies of the enemy with positive thinking. The only way to over come the lies of the enemy is the truth of God’s word.
God’s word is sharper than any two edge sword. As we meditate on God’s word it actually transforms our minds and enables us to live in freedom. Those who fail to invest in the study of God’s word will still live in bondage even though they claim to be free. The blood of Jesus washes away our sins, but it is understanding the truth of God’s word that enables us to live in freedom.
