Text of the Day

 

 

 

 

JULY 17

 

 Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee—

Isa. 26:3.

 

 This is not worldly peace, not the peace of indifference, not the peace of sloth, not the peace of self-indulgence, not the peace of fatalism; but it is the peace of Christ—”My peace.” Looking back we can see that the Master preserved His peace with God under all conditions. It is a peace which implicitly trusts to the Divine wisdom, love, justice and power—a peace which remembers the gracious promise made to the Lord’s faithful, that nothing shall by any means hurt His faithful, and that all things shall work together for good to them that love God. This peace can accept by faith whatever Divine providence permits, and can look through its tears with joyful expectancy, for the ultimate blessings which the Master has promised, and of which the present peace and joy are merely foretastes.
