"You will keep him in perfect peace,
Whose mind is stayed on You,
Because he trusts in You.
Trust in the Lord forever,
For in the Lord JEHOVAH is everlasting strength."
God's promises in His word are so encouraging to us! As we study the word and learn the meaning of the words, it gives us more understanding of what God is speaking to us. I looked up the key words in this verse in the Strongs concordance.
Keep means to guard or protect.
Peace means safe or well.
Trust means bold, confident, hope.
Strength means refuge.
JEHOVAH means self existence and eternal.
God will guard and protect us, keep us safe as well as we keep our mind focused on Him. Covering our minds daily in His word. As our mind is focused on Him we will lean on Him and take hold of Him! Our trust in Him will be bold and confident. JEHOVAH our eternal God is our everlasting refuge. God's desire is to draw us close to Him, so we can learn who He is and trust Him forever!
