REVEALED WORD TODAY
// READ: ISAIAH 26:3-12 //
3 You will keep in perfect peace
those whose minds are steadfast,
because they trust in you.
4 Trust in the Lord forever,
for the Lord, the Lord himself, is the Rock eternal.
5 He humbles those who dwell on high,
he lays the lofty city low;
he levels it to the ground
and casts it down to the dust.
6 Feet trample it down—
the feet of the oppressed,
the footsteps of the poor.
7 The path of the righteous is level;
you, the Upright One, make the way of the righteous smooth.
8 Yes, Lord, walking in the way of your laws,[a]
we wait for you;
your name and renown
are the desire of our hearts.
9 My soul yearns for you in the night;
in the morning my spirit longs for you.
When your judgments come upon the earth,
the people of the world learn righteousness.
10 But when grace is shown to the wicked,
they do not learn righteousness;
even in a land of uprightness they go on doing evil
and do not regard the majesty of the Lord.
11 Lord, your hand is lifted high,
but they do not see it.
Let them see your zeal for your people and be put to shame;
let the fire reserved for your enemies consume them.
12 Lord, you establish peace for us;
all that we have accomplished you have done for us.
Beloved, it is not enough to pray for God’s peace though He is committed to give peace always and by all means. Perfect peace is only give to those whose minds are stayed on Him. How often do you retain the thought of God in you? How often do you meditate on His Word? Is your mind stayed on Him? Verse 9 says “With my soul have I desired thee in the night; yea with my spirit within me will I seek thee early…” May you enjoy perfect peace as you fulfill this condition in Jesus name.
PRAYER: Pray for grace to desire God in the night and seek Him early.
