Many have prophesied, prognosticated and predicted a tumultuous new year. Many are worried what this coming new year and decade will hold; politically, governmentally, socially and spiritually. In the midst of all this angst, God gives a promise.
Isa. 26:3 You will keep him in perfect peace, Whose mind is stayed on You, Because he trusts in You.
A precious promise of peace for pressured saints is declared by Isaiah and this isn’t just a promise to Israel, it includes “all people” (Isa. 25:6).
Many are anxious as we close out 2019 and embark on 2020, a new year and a new decade. For the Saint of God why not end ’19 and begin ’20 on the same note – PEACE?
Position life in these final hours of this year and thereby be positioned for the days ahead based on unequivocal trust in the Lord God Almighty! Peace, the Shalom of God, the “perfect peace” of God will maintain and protect our “stayed” minds on the Lord.
Whatever regrets one may have over the past, whatever anxieties may swirl around us concerning the days ahead; we can be assured of PEACE when He is our focus.
“Lord give us stayed minds on You as we close this year out and enter a new year and a new decade. We thank You for Your keeping peace, bringing and sustaining wholeness for each of us as we dedicate ourselves a new to You.”
