Corralling Thoughts

Last night I was meditating on Isaiah 26:3 which says, “You will keep him in perfect peace, whose mind in stayed on You, because he trusts in You.”  Trust squeezes out disquiet.

Disquiet means: a feeling of anxiety, unease, concern, perturbed, upset, agitation, restlessness, fretfulness.  Matthew 6:25 Amplified says, “Stop being perpetually uneasy (anxious and worried) about your life…”

When we are disquieted our trust is under attack.  We are being tempted to lean on our own understanding.  Don’t let your thoughts stray.  Keep them corralled.  Our flesh searches and probes for answers, but His Spirit leads us into truth through insight.

1 Corinthians 2:10 Amplified says, “…for the (Holy) Spirit searches diligently, exploring and examining everything, even sounding the profound and bottomless things of God (the divine counsels and things hidden and beyond man’s scrutiny).”

Here is an acrostic for trust that He showed me many years ago: To Rest Under Sore Trial
