Our Song, Our City, Our Perfect Peace

Isaiah 26:1 (NLT) In that day, everyone in the land of Judah will sing this song: "Our city is strong! We are surrounded by the walls of God’s salvation. 2 Open the gates to all who are righteous; allow the faithful to enter. 3 You will keep in perfect peace all who trust in you, all whose thoughts are fixed on you!"

“That day” or any day in God has to do with redemption and salvation purchased by the blood of the Lord Jesus Christ. While Isaiah prophesied concerning the people of Judah, in Christ, we find application of this text for today.

This is a song that we should sing today and everyday. This song does not require a praise team or even instruments. This song only requires a willing heart and confidence in Almighty God.

"Our city" is the place in which we dwell. That would be the Kingdom of God, the Church of Jesus Christ, which is the community of believers, and our families. Our city is strong because we worship God and welcome his presence in our dwelling places.

The walls that surround us represent the saving and keeping power of God. The doors or gates are open to all those of like mind. We are a gated community with an open gate! The door is open to anyone willing to receive the righteousness of God and be faithful unto the Lord.

In this strong city the citizens have PERFECT PEACE! We are at peace because we trust in the One who founded our city, Who built up the walls, and Who supplies the POWER that keeps everything working. We trust in the Lord and because we do, our thoughts are fixed on him.

Go sing your song today!
