In Perfect Peace

Pastor Campa
Isaiah 26:3 Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee.

Isaiah 26 is a song of trust, and it speaks of a wonderful promise given to God’s children in the darkest period of Israel's history. This promise can help us when we are surrounded by so much sadness and depression, especially when we are threatened by the three great enemies: doubt, fear, and worry.

When all is well and the sun is shining, it is easy to read our key verse in a very superficial way. But when the clouds of trials, disappointments, fears, and alarms linger in the sky, how precious these words become in our life!

There is no promise in the Bible that ensures that while we are in our earthly bodies we will find ourselves free from problems, but there is something much better—the promise of peace in the midst of problems.

What would be the use of being free from problems if we did not have peace within us? And yet, how wonderful it is that in the midst of the toughest battles and in the worst of storms, the soul of the believer can have inner peace, a deep peace, and a quiet confidence that the Lord is with us!

John 14:27 Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.

John 16:33 These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.

Psalm 4:7-8 Thou hast put gladness in my heart, more than in the time that their corn and their wine increased. I will both lay me down in peace, and sleep: for thou, LORD, only makest me dwell in safety.

Let me give you two things that can help us to enjoy the promise of perfect peace in our lives:

1. Let’s be righteous people of truth.

Isaiah 26:2 Open ye the gates, that the righteous nation which keepeth the truth may enter in.

Psalm 119:165 Great peace have they which love thy law: and nothing shall offend them.

Job 22:21 Acquaint now thyself with him, and be at peace: thereby good shall come unto thee.

2. Let’s keep our minds on God.

Isaiah 26:3 Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee.

2 Corinthians 10:3-6 For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war after the flesh:  (For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds;) Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ; And having in a readiness to revenge all disobedience, when your obedience is fulfilled.

Hebrews 4:12 For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.

The day will come, when all trials and fears will disappear and we will dwell with God in perfect peace as we worship Him for eternity. But while living in this imperfect world, we must trust in the omniscience of God and focus our hearts and minds on God so that we can have perfect peace even in the midst of problems.
