“a Lamp to my feet. a Light for my path.” – Isaiah 26:3




You will keep in perfect peace
all who trust in You,
all whose thoughts are fixed on You!


– Isaiah 26:3 (NLT)






The gift that God offers the faithful is peace.


As He was approaching the end of His ministry on earth,

Jesus caringly gave us His peace:

“I am leaving you with a gift – peace of mind and heart.

And the peace I give is a gift the world cannot give.

So don’t be troubled or afraid.” (Jn 14:27)

In giving us His peace, Jesus gave us His Spirit

to be always with us,

to guide us,

console us,

counsel us,

and to lead us back into the Father’s arms.


If I am not feeling the peace of the Lord inside of me,

I need to look deeply into myself

to examine my faithfulness to Him and His commandments;

to check on whether I really do trust fully in Him;

to see if, in spite of the Spirit’s prompting,

I still insist on doing my thing and on going my own way

in order to satisfy my earthly needs and desires.


Yes, the peace of the Lord

is felt by those who place their trust fully in Him

and whose thoughts are, therefore, fixed on Him.


So, what about me,

is my soul rejoicing in God’s peace?






Strengthen my faith, O God, that I may rejoice in Your peace.

Your peace is all I need!
