Perfect Peace

Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee."  Isaiah 26:3

I extremely enjoy privately studying subjects out of the Sunday school book (Bible Lessons for Adults and Young People).  I like to sit down with an old issue and read the truths it has to offer.  The topic for May 1, 2011 was "The Peace of God".  I was blessed with the thoughts and wrote some notes in my Journal.

The peace that God gives us is perfect.  It passes all our understanding and is not like the false peace that the world offers.

How can we have peace? (1) We must stay our mind on God.  (2) We must trust in God.  (3) We must be righteous.  (4) Instead of being anxious or fearful, we must earnestly pray with humility and thanksgiving and bring all our needs and requests to God.  (5) We must love his law.

What is the effect of peace?  (1) quietness (2) lasting assurance (3) rest (4) a heart that is not troubled or afraid (5) the keeping of your heart and mind (6) nothing will offend or vex you
