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

How do you stay your mind on Christ? By staying your mind on the revelation of the Gospel.

'Who shall lay any thing to the charge of God's elect? It is God that justifieth.' - Romans 8 vs 33 {KJV}

'And by him all that believe are justified from all things, from which ye could not be justified by the law of Moses.' - Acts 13 vs 39 {KJV}

  • God has justified us from all sin

To justify means to declare someone not guilty of an offence. For us in Christ, God holds no wrong against us. That means that we have an eternal forgiveness from the Father;

'In whom we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of his grace...' - Ephesians 1 vs 7 {KJV}

  • In Christ we have the forgiveness of sins

So you see beloved, if you fail along the way in your Christian journey, if you sin; as the pressures and burden of that sin hits your heart, keep your mind steady on the Truth of the Gospel - you have received justification from all sins. Let this Truth saturate your heart, don't consider the burden your sin hits your heart with; but rather, consider the Truth, consider the Gospel: God has justified you in Christ! You have the forgiveness of sins in Christ. He didn't say God will forgive you in Christ, but rather you have! Meaning for us in Christ, forgiveness of sins is an inheritance we came into. Hallelujah! Justification is a gift we received from God. Your heart tells you you have sinned, the Gospel says you are not guilty! Keep your mind stayed on the truth of the Gospel till the reality of the Gospel becomes the reality of your heart. Peace will come! The burden will be destroyed! And that's because you trusted the Truth not regarding the voice of your sin in your heart. - Selah

Let's see our opening Bible verse again;

'Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee.' - Isaiah 26 vs 3 {KJV}

  • Thou will keep him in perfect peace

He went ahead and gave the condition for this to be, He says,

  • Whose mind is stayed on thee (God)

The usage of the word "stayed" connotes, to place something in a particular place, spot, or location without an intention to take it away from there.

That means, we are to make the Word of God the permanent residence of our mind. That means, irrespective of the pain, irrespective of the accusations, irrespective of the condemnation or burden we feel in our hearts, our minds should not be found in another location other than the Word of God. You see... How do you stay your mind on God? by staying your mind on what God said (the word of God, the Gospel of Christ). So we are admonished that, as we stay our mind on the revelation of the Gospel, the reality of the Gospel which is Peace will take effect in our lives. Our hearts will be free from burdens and our minds will be set at rest. Glory to God forever. Amen.

Be encouraged beloved. God is with you.
