Isaiah 26:3 says, “Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee.” There is peace to those who fix their minds on the Lord, those who trust in Him.

Hebrews 12:2-3 says, “Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God. For consider him that endured such contradiction of sinners against himself, lest ye be wearied and faint in your minds.” There is much comfort and strength found when we consider our blessed savior who loved us and died for us.

Ephesians 1:13 says, “In whom ye also trusted, after that ye heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation: in whom also after that ye believed, ye were sealed with that holy Spirit of promise.” What a comfort it is to dwell upon the fact that we, as believers, are sealed with the Holy Spirit.

There is but ONE GOD, yet He is manifested to us in three persons…the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. Even as we are three (the soul, body, and spirit), so is our creator.

  • Sometimes we can recognize the different functions of the Godhead. (It was the Son that died for our sins, it was the Father who sent the Son to be the Saviour of the world, it is the Spirit who reproves the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment).
  • Sometimes we cannot recognize the different functions of the Godhead. (It was God who created the heavens and the earth. It is it is God which works in you both to will and to do of his good pleasure.)

We read in Colossians 2:9, “For in him (Christ) dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily.” In the Lord Jesus, the whole Godhead lives.

The Son’s desire is to glorify the Father. John 14:13, “And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son.”

The Holy Spirit’s desire is to glorify the Son. John 16:13-14, “Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come. He shall glorify me: for he shall receive of mine, and shall shew it unto you.”

As we study God’s Word, He will guide our thoughts. He will cause us to bring into captivity “every thought to the obedience of Christ.” (2 Corinthians 10:5). The Lord will cause us to meditate upon Himself in whatever way He chooses. Perhaps He will lead us to consider the Father’s love for His Son. Perhaps He will lead us to consider the death of the Son for our salvation. Perhaps He will lead us to consider the wonderful work of the Spirit. The more we know the Lord through the study of His Word, the more we will desire to meditate upon His glorious person. The very person of the Lord is so great. He is so far beyond our total comprehension. 1 Timothy 3:16 tells us, “And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory.” “Think on these things.” (Philippians 4:8) (314.3)
