Thursday Notes: January 23, 2020

“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)The Hebrew word for the phrase “stayed on” that’s used in this verse is Samak, which means “to brace, uphold, support.”  In other words, those with minds fully braced, upheld, and supported by Truth and trust in God will be kept in perfect peace. The English phrase “perfect peace” means an “all-embracing peace.” It is God giving us the strength internally to face whatever comes our way externally.
