You will keep in perfect peace those whose minds are steadfast, because they trust in you. Trust in the Lord forever; for the Lord, the Lord himself is the Rock eternal. -Isaiah 26:3-4 NIV
Are you steadfast in your faith? We tend to run to God in times of crisis, but forget about Him when it’s smooth-sailing. Remember that God rejoices as much in your everyday little steps of faith as He does when you take that giant leap of faith.
It’s easy to fall into complacency in the good times. We can be lulled into believing that our own power is sufficient and we are in control. What God can accomplish through us is directly proportional to our dependence and trust in Him.
Don’t lose out on the precious experience of rejoicing with Him. As Psalm 34:1 says, “I will bless the Lord at all times, His praise will continually be in my mouth”. Continue to seek His face throughout the day; praise Him for His goodness; give thanks for His blessings; and dance in His presence.
Let His peace permeate your entire being so that others can see that the way to flourish in Faith is trust that is consistent.
- Thank God for the smooth times, the good times.
- Ask Him to keep you walking closely with Him – whether life is easy OR hard.
