Perfect Peace

Stress, despair, ungodliness.  “Thou will keep him in PERFECT peace whose mind is stayed on You.”

Hearts failing, love dying, hope fading.  “Thou will keep him in PERFECT peace whose mind is stayed on You.”

Death, destruction, earths wailing moan. “Thou will keep him in PERFECT peace whose mind is stayed on You.”

Perfect peace!  If there was such a thing as a double positive in the English language, the sentence would read, “Thou will keep him in peace, peace whose mind is stayed on You.”

Both of the words, perfect and peace, are the same word, “Shalom,” meaning wholeness…wholeness in health, wholeness in safety, wholeness in prosperity, wholeness in mind, wholeness in peace.  Perfect peace creates an unflinching calmness in the midst of a raging storm.

“Because I put my trust in You Lord, You promise to guard me and keep me in perfect peace.  Peace concerning my health.  Peace concerning my mind.  Peace concerning my finances.  Peace concerning my safety.  You are my peace, my unflinching calmness in the midst of life’s raging storms. In the Name of Jesus, Amen!”

Isaiah 26:3

“Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace,
whose mind is stayed on thee:
because he trusteth in thee.”
