We need to claim this promise. God promises that he will give us perfect peace if we do two things according to this verse. First, we need to trust Him to be who He was, is, and always will be–that is God. Trusting God is believing that He will keep His promises and that He will do what He says He is going to do. God is never late. God is never early. He is always on time. Second, all our thoughts are to be fixed on Him. When we are distracted, we tend to get frustrated and worry ourselves unnecessarily. However, when our minds is stayed on God, He is sure to give us the peace we need to go through challenges, obstacles, and successes of every kind.
