Peace · Trust · Wonder

perfect peace…

His Word says it… so it must be true…

You keep him in perfect peace whose mind is stayed on you,
because he trusts in you.
Isaiah 26:3 ESV
A mind stayed on Him…
trusting…
is blessed with perfect peace…
So I go to look deeper at perfect peace…
 in the original language… Hebrew… 
surprised by what I find…
…shalom shalom…

What we translate as perfect peace
in Hebrew… shalom shalom…
peace peace… double peace…
Words used to describe shalom… in the Enhanced Strong’s Lexicon…
completeness… soundness… welfare… peace…
safety… health… prosperity… quiet… tranquility…
contentment… peace…
A perfect peace trusting in Him… no matter what the present circumstance… trusting Him for welfare… safety… prosperity… contentment…

This verse has my attention today because I wonder at the peace in my heart lately… peace that doesn’t feel normal for me…

A peace I wonder at…
and maybe… just maybe…
I’m trusting Him more…
staying my mind on Him more…
experiencing just a taste…
of peace peace…

shalom… shalom…

Praying for you today…
to trust Him more…
and experience the blessing of…
peace… peace…
