Is 23-27 The world is in turmoil; families and governments are vacillating from every side. But, in this time, there is one group that can remain steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord [1Cor 15:58] because their minds are stayed, that is securely focused on one thing: the God who rules over all.
Man’s peace comes from choosing God’s way, not man’s. He can have that perfect peace (that shalom shalom) because his mind is perfectly trusting in God. Trust in the Lord, lean not on your own understanding, and He will direct your paths, were the words of the Proverbs writer. [Prov 3:5-6] Later, Paul would remind us that the mind set on flesh is death, but the mind set on the Spirit is life and peace. [Rom 8:6]
Where is your mind today? Is it focused on God and His Word or the problems of the world? How can we pray for you?
