“You keep him in perfect peace whose mind is stayed on you, because he trusts in you. Trust in the Lord forever, for the Lord God is an everlasting rock.” – Isaiah 26:3-4 (ESV) “Those who take Christ at His word, and surrender their souls to His keeping, their lives to His ordering, will find peace and quietude. Nothing of the world can make them sad when Jesus makes them glad by His presence. In perfect acquiescence there is perfect rest.” – Desire of Ages, p. 331
Heart Questions: When you feel unrest in your heart, where do you run first? Who do you consult? Is it Jesus? Putting our trust in Jesus, Our Everlasting Rock, cannot be based on how you feel in any particular moment. You must choose to trust Him, no matter what circumstances you are in. Then He can give you perfect peace. Will you choose to put your trust in Him right now?
