Prescription for Perfect Peace

Introduction: Are you “upset?” Do you have PEACE? God’s PEACE? Have you made PEACE with God thru our Lord Jesus Christ? Are you experiencing the “PEACE of God?” You may ask, “But how”? Isaiah the prophet spoke words to not only Israel but also to us today. Listen to these “SWEET WORDS”? Certainly, this is God’s PRESCRIPTION for PERFECT PEACE. Please follow the trail to PERFECT PEACE.

“Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace,”

1. Where is your “MIND SET?” (Isa 26:3)

“3Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee:”

The word “stayed” is סָמַךְ: (saw-mak’), which means to lean, lay, rest, support.

Are you “leaning” heavily on Jesus – and His Word – His promises? Are your feelings getting in the way?

2. How is your “HEART SET”? (Isa 26:3)

“because he trusteth in thee.”

When things get out of our control it really exposes where our trust is! Are things out of your control? How are you dealing with it?

3. Why are you not “UPSET”? (Isa 26:4)

“4Trust ye in the LORD for ever: for in the LORD JEHOVAH is everlasting strength.”

The word “Keep” (v.3) is : נָצַר: (naw-tsar’), which means to watch, guard, keep. The word “strength” is צוּר: (tsoor), interesting to note means rock, cliff.

Is Jesus Christ your ROCK? Is He your CLIFF?

Conclusion: Now we are reminded of our “MINDSET, HEART SET” is key to not being UPSET. Are you UPSET? Here is a PERSONAL PRESCRIPTION for PERFECT PEACE!
