God Between the Soul and Circumstances
Isaiah 26:3-4
You will keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on you: because he trusts in you.…

A great difference comes into the life when, instead of putting circumstances between ourselves and God, we put God between ourselves and circumstances. Then when annoyance and fret, unkind speeches and unjust treatment, worries about money and helpers and procedure accumulate, they seem like the passage of crowds up and down a London thoroughfare, whilst we sit quietly within and pursue our work behind the double windows, that render the room almost impervious to sound. Happy the soul which has learned to live inside the film of God's invisible protection, poured around it by the Spirit of peace!

(F. B. Meyer, B. A.)
