lean on Him… Isaiah 26:3…

You keep him in perfect peace whose mind is stayed on you,
because he trusts in you. 
Isaiah 26:3 ESV
The one who trusts Him…
has a mind stayed on Him…
The Hebrew translated… stayed… means… “to lean upon”… (Theological Wordbook of the Old Testament)
What does it look like to have a mind… leaned upon Him…?
Thoughts always leaning toward Him…
not toward worry…
not toward fear…
but to the One who is Sovereign…
the One who is Good…
the One who loves you…
“…For the mountains may depart and the hills be removed,
but my steadfast love shall not depart from you,
and my covenant of peace shall not be removed,”
says the Lord, who has compassion on you.
Isaiah 54:10 ESV
Those who trust Him…
lean their thoughts toward Him…
and reap the benefit of peace…
Not just any peace…
but perfect peace…
The Hebrew reads…
shalom shalom…
double peace…
wholeness of your wholeness…
all things set right…
all things secure and sound…
peace…
Where are your thoughts stayed…? leaning…?
What results from your thoughts…?
Trust Him…
lean your thoughts… mind… imagination…
toward Him…
and know… peace… peace…
Amen…
