You will keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on You, because he trusts in You. Isaiah 26:3
Recent surveys have shown that people don’t sleep as well during the Christmas season. In some cases, it’s because of increased partying and alcohol consumption. Other times, the problem involves travel and disrupted schedules. For still others, it’s nagging worries about spending too much, putting too much on the credit cards, or having too much to do in entertaining and serving. Family and financial pressures can rob us of sleep, and family problems have a way of showing up just in time for the holidays.
But there’s good news!
Isaiah 26:3 takes no breaks for the holidays. The words of that verse are good for every hour of every day, and they don’t weaken or wane during Christmas. There are no exemption dates. Today, tomorrow, next week, for the rest of this year, and forever the Lord will keep in perfect peace those whose minds are stayed on Him, who dwell in His Word, and who trust in Him.
The Bible says, “Fix your thoughts on Jesus” (Hebrews 3:1, NIV).
So trust in the Lord forever, for in Jehovah, the Lord, there is everlasting strength.
Perfect Peace – Isaiah 26:3-4 – Chuck Smith
