Isaiah 26:3

Saturday morning my brain was thinking in New King James.

 

Isaiah 26:3

You will keep him in perfect peace,
Whose mind is stayed on You,
Because he trusts in You.

So, all day I kept thinking about this verse...saying it over and over in my thoughts. Apparently...thinking it and saying it is not the same as believing it! So...

Just before midnight I decided maybe I needed something a bit more descriptive. So I thought...Amplified, that will help. You know, something a bit more to grasp onto.

 

Isaiah 26:3

You will guard him and keep him in perfect and constant peace whose mind [both its inclination and its character] is stayed on You, because he commits himself to You, leans on You, and hopes confidently in You.

12:05 Sunday morning...

That's a good verse no matter what version you know...or have to read. He will give us peace if we will only let Him. Sometimes though...it's hard to get there. Why? Because we let the wrong thoughts come in and take over. We stop trusting and pressing in to the Lord. We need to pray continuously throughout our day. He is always there listening for our voice. 

 

1 Thessalonians 5:17-18 Amp

17Be unceasing in prayer [praying perseveringly];
    18Thank [God] in everything [no matter what the circumstances may be, be thankful and give thanks], for this is the will of God for you [who are] in Christ Jesus [the Revealer and Mediator of that will].

Beautiful verse; Isaiah 26:3. When I fix my thoughts on God I can know perfect peace(even when I am anxious)! :)

Blessings Chelle; have a joyful Sunday!

In the hour in which we live, what greater, more sufficient scripture promise do we have...than to know he gives perfect peace ....

Isn't God amazing? He gives us peace always, we just have to ask for it.

Yes the Amplified explains it clearer. Well, at least for me. Thank you dear for sharing. Blessings.

Hi Chelle - I also go to the amplified for filling a verse out and sometimes it just grips you.
God bless
