You will guard him and keep him in perfect and constant peace whose mind [both its inclination and its character] is stayed on You, because he commits himself to You, leans on You, and hopes confidently in You. ~Isaiah 26:3
Commits himself to You…
Leans on You…
Hopes confidently in You…
The verbs are important, but the pronoun is of upmost importance!
We can commit ourselves, lean and hope confidently. But, if we do these things in anyone, or anything, other than our God, we will not be kept in perfect and constant peace.
Have you committed yourself to Him?
Do you lean on Him?
Do you hope confidently in Him?
Do you know Him?
I must admit, I do not do this 24/7 and therefore, I do not have perfect and constant peace. But, . . . I do remember times when I’ve tested this scripture, and let me tell you . . . it works!
He is our strength. Our God is able to do exceedingly, abundantly beyond anything we could ever ask or think.
He is the Way, the Truth, and the Life.
And test your pronouns. Do you use more I’s or me’s, instead of Him or He?
It’s all about Him, it’s not about me . . . it’s living by faith in Him, abundantly . . .
