You will keep in
perfect peace all who trust in
all whose thoughts are fixed on you!
Isaiah 26:3 NLT
I stepped on the gas. Nothing. The car didn’t move.
My mind immediately went into problem-solving mode. Oh, no. What’s wrong with my car? What can I do? Who can I call?
That’s when I looked down.
Car in neutral.
Not in gear.
The same thing happens when my mind slips into neutral. Thoughts whiz through my mind like bullets at a shooting range. Those random thoughts tend to create worry, anxiety, and stress. My peace disappears.
The only way to correct this problem is to shift my mind out of neutral and into gear by turning my full attention back to the Lord and submitting all my thoughts to Him.
When we trust in Him and keep our thoughts firmly fixed on Him, He promises to keep us in perfect peace. His peace. The peace that goes far beyond human comprehension.
I need that peace. How about you?
