One of the most amazing promises found anywhere in the Word of God is this; “You will keep in perfect peace him whose mind is steadfast, because he trusts in you (Isaiah 26.3 - NIV).”    The Amplified version reads as follows: “You will guard him and keep him in perfect and constant peace whose mind [both its inclination and its character] is stayed on You, because he commits himself to You, leans on You, and hopes confidently in You.”

I see two parts to this verse.  Our’s and God’s.  God’s directive to us is to stay focused, to keep our eyes firmly fixed and focused on Him.  He tells us that if we will do that one thing, stay focused on Him (that is God), He will do His part, and that is to bless us with perfect peace.  No earthly source can make that promise because there is none could come even close to delivering on the promise.

During the past 24 hours I have had 3 encounters where the subject of "peace" was raised.  No mistake at this time of year.  When I wrote on November 29, I wrote about pursuing LIFE.  It should be clear to us all that when God sent His gift 2,000 years ago it was so we could live, but also so we could have peace.  The declaration of the angel and the multitude of the heavenly host was "...joy which was for all people...(and) peace, goodwill toward men (Luke 2:11,14)."  The scripture declares, "He is our peace...(Eph. 2:14)."

One of the groups I was in raised this question: "How do we get peace?"  Great question.  God sent peace into the world and His name is Jesus.  He came as a babe.  Died as a man.  Will come again as a King.  But in the meantime, He did not leave us comfortless.  He sent His Holy Spirit to be with us as another, "just like Himself."  He wants to be with us.  He wants for us to know His presence.  He wants us to know that His plan is to take up residence in us and quite literally be our peace within.

Life Givers is built upon a truth from the Bible found in the Gospel of John, chapter 10, verse 10.  Jesus said, “The thief’s purpose is to steal and kill and destroy.  My purpose is to give them a rich and satisfying life (NLT).”  This verse articulates the purpose for Jesus coming and that was to give LIFE.  You need to note that there is NO condition attached to this promise.  This is a statement declaring the kind of life God wants us to know and that is life in abundance, to the full, and overflowing.

Most of us, if asked whether or not this describes the life we know, if truthful, would have to say no.  But this was and still is God’s intent, His heart, and His reason for sending His Son into this world.

A new year has begun and there is no better question to ask ourselves than the one God asked Moses: “What is that you hold in your hand?” – Exodus 4:2

The answer was a simple rod which became the “rod of God.”

As you sit reading this brief blog, look to your left and you will see a tab saying “Watch the Video.”

The video contains information that can bring fresh perspective, new direction, hope, encouragement, and an understanding that “life is still possible after diagnosis” for someone who may be struggling with some kind of life-threatening or life-altering illness or situation.
