Heartlight Daily Verse 8/27


August 27

You will keep in perfect peace him whose mind is steadfast, because he trusts in you.
 
Thoughts on today's verse
 
It is naive to think that trusting in God solves all of our problems -- Christians have many of the same problems that unbelievers do because they share the same mortal flesh. On the other hand it's true that if we trust in God, we believe our work stands or falls in his hands and that ultimately we will share in his victorious and glorious presence. It means our lives will not be lived in vain. That's not just confidence, but it's the foundation to true peace -- life lived to its fullest and richest knowing that it matters and we don't need to be anxious about its results.
 
Prayer:
 
Almighty Prince of Peace, thank you for giving me the assurance that my life will not be lived in vain. May I share that peace with others today. Through Jesus I pray. Amen.
