Vs 1 In that day this song will be sung in the land of Judah: “We have a strong
city; He sets up walls and ramparts for security.

Don’t Forget, Prior to the praise party: They were transported criticized,
scorn, stripped of property and honor; and reduced to prisoners and captives.

Yet their confidence in God had not been shaken. They still trusted and still
believed that he could and would deliver them. Don’t Forget

Isaiah 26:1-2 It’s a new day and vs,3 the timeless transcending and life

Isaiah 26:3a
Rephrase Vs.3 God will keep you in perfect peace

1, First, Embrace the Fact that God is Sovereign.

Isaiah validates the existence of God and his attributes. God will Keep you fact
or fiction? Question: How can God be a Keeper?

The Definition of Perfect peace: is God’s peace which comes from the
realization that he loves us, He is in control, never leave or forsake us and our
destiny is settled. His peace transcends all understanding, ”it is the harmony
and calmness of body, mind, and spirit that supersedes earthly circumstances.

Phill 4:7. (NIV) And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding,
will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus

Col 3:15 “And let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, to which indeed you
were called in one body. And be thankful.
Whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee.

2. Manage Your Mind: You are the steward of it.

Phil 4:7 And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your
hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.

A stayed mind is a stable, so why or how can it become unstable? One reason
is the availability of stuff. The height of the Pandemic presented several areas
of increase. Drug use, Porn Alcohol, Domestic
Violence and Homicide. It is no doubt a
disaster that a mind is a terrible thing to waste, but the tragedy is some of us
just give it away. You a piece to someone else.

The text challenges the location of our minds.

primary meaning of the root is “to lean upon.
According to (Rev 3:15) God has an attitude when we are luke warm, not bent.
Q: Where is your mind????

The Biblical Remedy for a stable mind
For Some: Refresh Action Item 1
Philip 4:8-9 Finally, brethren, whatever is true, whatever is honorable,
whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is of good
repute, if there is any excellence and if anything worthy of praise, dwell on
these things. 9.The things you have learned and received and heard and seen
in me, practice these things, and the God of peace will be with you.

For Others: Renew Action Item 2
Roman 12:2 (NASB)
And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of
your mind, so that you may prove what the will of God is, that which is good
and acceptable and perfect.

Remember, a stayed mind is not about your mind, but The God of a Stayed
Mind. It is a mind that has confidence in God, it is not agitated by the trials to
which it is subject; not by persecution, poverty, sickness, want, or
bereavement. So..

Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own
understanding Proverbs 3:5

Those who trust in the Lord will have a steadfast mind as a result. Those who
have a steadfast mind will be kept by God in perfect peace. For the Christian,
perfect peace is a byproduct of the simple command to “trust in” the Lord.

Thank you Lord for allowing us to be apart of the process and an active
participant of your plan in this season. Amen
