You will keep in perfect peace him whose mind is steadfast, because he trusts in You. Trust in the Lord forever, for the Lord, the Lord, is the rock eternal. Isaiah 26:3-4
06/22/09 What is perfect peace? Will I ever know such a state this side of heaven? I believe we can certainly experience moments of perfect peace. Anything perfect comes from the Lord. And I know that He has blessed me with peace on several occasions. And, based solely on the fact that the peace was a supernatural gift from Him, I know in my heart that it was perfect. His perfect peace helped me to get through the deaths of three members of my immediate family in the course of four months’ time. Granted, the circumstances didn’t feel perfect, but Jesus enabled me to lean on Him and know deep down that He was working all things for good – even in these circumstances. His perfect peace is something we can experience and a fruit that we can manifest for others to see and want to know Christ.
