Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee. Isaiah 26:3
This verse is a comfort to me, and I know it to be true. Though the world may rage around me, and I may have lots of things on my mind, I will remain in peace. God says that He WILL keep me in perfect peace, His peace, which is perfect. I don’t have to do anything but trust in Him. Sometimes when I don’t trust in Him my mind is not in perfect peace, because I allow doubt to creep in or I think I can fix whatever is wrong on my own. I start worrying and so forth, but when I remember that I am to trust in Him and not be afraid, then my heart is full of peace, and I can walk through whatever is thrown my way. His perfect peace is wonderful, because its not only for me, but for others too, its something I can give away, share with others, and its a sign that I trust in something other than me, I put my trust in God. So when someone asks me how I can be at peace while the war is going on, or circumstances in my life are rough, I can share with them this verse. Its a promise you know. A promise from my Father and yours too.
