October 20, 2019: Keep your mind steadfast on God...
"You will keep in perfect peace those whose minds are steadfast, because they trust in You." Isaiah 26:3 (NIV)
There is no promise in the Bible to suggest here on earth we shall ever experience absolute freedom from trouble, trial, temptation, anguish or loss. But something far better is promised: it is the promise of perfect peace in the midst of all of these. Of what value would freedom from these troubles be if we had no inward peace? Yet it’s possible in the fiercest storm for the humble believer to experience an inward peace and quiet confidence. (Francis Dixon, adapted)
