ISAIAH 26:3 ESV – You keep him in perfect peace whose mind is stayed on you, because he trusts in you.
God, the Peacekeeper
You have an ego—a consciousness of being an individual. Of course, you do. But that doesn’t mean that you are to worship yourself, to think constantly of yourself, and to live entirely for yourself. Common sense tells you that your life would be miserable if you followed that course. God is infinitely more concerned about your happiness than you could possibly be. He says, “Deny yourself, and follow me.” There is many a person in the insane asylum today who thought excessively about himself, to the exclusion of God and others. Hypochondriacs who have a fanciful anxiety about their health will never be well, regardless of their physical condition.
Keep my mind on You, Lord, and help me to discipline the thoughts of self which crowd out Your peace.
