Isaiah 26:3

THE INWARD LIFE OF A STEWARD
Overcoming Fear

The steadfast of mind You will keep in perfect peace, Because he trusts in You.

How can you keep yourself from worrying, being afraid, or anxious? Isaiah 26:3 tells us, The steadfast of mind You will keep in perfect peace, Because he trusts in You (NASB). There are three key words in this verse: steadfast, peace, and trust. There is a logical progression here. First, we must trust in God. Second, doing so stabilizes our mind and allows it to become steadfast and unshakable. Third, this then allows us to live in perfect peace even in the midst of life’s trials, troubles, and traumas. If we can control our thoughts, we will be able to control our behaviors, and if we can control our behavior, we will be able to control our destiny. It all begins with trusting God. How are you doing trusting God? Think about it.
