Dear Precious Friends, 😍😍😍
I love this visual and reminder to keep our eyes on Jesus, our Savior in the midst of the storm... We are not to keep our eyes on the storm, we are to keep our eyes on Him!!!
This is our time to shine.. this is our time to walk in Faith.. Be there for others in need... THOSE WITH ANXIETY AND DEPRESSION NEED US NOW MORE THAN EVER... and if we have these issues, guess what... it will pull us out of them when we focus on the needs of others!... As a community of faith this is our time to shine!!!.. Make sure those who are compromised, elderly, poor have all they need.... we must walk by faith in peace as this reminds us, stay in God's word so Satan can't keep us focused on the storm but we stay focused on our Savior... fellowship with other believers and pray pray pray!!!!
What does it mean to have our mind "stayed"
“You will keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on You, because he trusts in You. Trust in the Lord forever, for in Yahweh, the Lord, is everlasting strength.” (Isaiah 26:3-4)
God made an amazing promise through the Prophet Isaiah: “You will keep him in perfect peace.” What a promise – “perfect peace”! God promises that we can have perfect peace, and even be kept in a place of perfect peace.
To be kept in this perfect peace, our mind must be stayed. So, what sustains your mind? What do you lay your mind upon? What upholds your mind? What does your mind stand fast upon? What is your mind established upon? What does your mind lean upon? To have this perfect peace, your mind cannot occasionally come to the Lord; it has to be stayed on Him.
Satan loves to get our minds on anything except God and His love to us! Especially Fear and the Corona Virus!!!
To emphasize the point, Isaiah wrote: “Because He trusts in You.” This is another way of expressing the idea of keeping our minds stayed on Him. Almost always, you keep your mind stayed on whatever you are trusting. When we trust the Lord, we keep our mind stayed on Him. It all means that the battle for trust in our lives begins in our minds. If we trust the Lord, it will show in our actions, but it will begin in our mind.
These two wonderful verses end like this: “For in Yahweh, the Lord, is everlasting strength.” If the Lord calls us to rely on Him completely with our mind, He appeals to our mind with a rational reason why we should trust the Lord – because He is everlasting strength. It isn’t that the Lord has everlasting strength, He is everlasting strength.
That should put your mind at peace – perfect peace indeed!
Friends, Let's be the example and show others Jesus love so there is no room for FEAR (FALSE EVIDENCE APPEARING REAL... WE WALK BY FAITH (FORSAKING ALL I TRUST HIM)!
Now can I have a TRUE COMMITMENT OF WHO IS IN AND HOW THIS WILL LOOK IN YOUR LIFE TODAY?!!!
