Today the word prompt is … Keep.
We all have things which we like to keep. We keep them in a special place. A place which is special and will provide protection.
In those times which unsettle me causing me to feel vulnerable, I find myself grateful for His promise:
“You will keep in perfect peace him whose mind is steadfast, because he trusts in you.” (Isaiah 26:3, NIV)
He alone provides for me a place of protection, of safety – He keeps me in a given and special place – in the palm of His hand.
It is there He keeps me with a sense of well being, assurance all will turn out for my good.
He keeps my mind steadfast, framing the situation with His truth.
He keeps me as I trust Him. Trust meaning I attach myself to Him relying on Him to keep me secure.
It’s a funny thing this word “keep” ….
He keeps me in perfect peace.
As I keep my mind on Him.
He keeps one thing. I keep another.
And peace is sure to come!
