AKINA Community Church

 
Welcome to
 
AKINA Communty Church
 
AKINA is an Ojibwe word for “everyone”. At Akina
 
 Community Church everyone is welcome; all ages,
 
cultures and backgrounds. We gather every week to
 
do what is difficult to do on our own and that is to
 
honor our Creator by giving our full attention (our
 
mind, heart & soul) to Him. We were never meant to
 
walk this trail alone but together. It is our desire that
 
Akina would be a place where you can connect with
 
God and others on this journey. We meat every
 
Sunday at 10:45. We look forward to meeting you.

Perfect Peace

Read Isaiah 24:1 through 27:13

Isaiah 25 and 26 are reminiscent of the Psalms and provide a refreshing break from the doom pronounced in previous chapters. Amid all the upheaval and unrest, we find God’s “formula” for peace.

You will keep in perfect peace those whose minds are steadfast, because they trust in you (Isaiah 26:3).

An older translation expands the meaning of the word “steadfast”: “whose mind is stayed on thee.” All thoughts and actions of this kind of person come from a mind wholly devoted to trusting in God—a stark contrast to the people in previous chapters who forgot God.

So many search for peace in all the wrong places—money, relationships, reputation. But the picture of perfect peace that Isaiah painted in these chapters focuses on an attitude of gratefulness to God: “You have done wonderful things, things planned long ago” (25:1) and “all that we have accomplished you have done for us” (26:12). Giving credit where credit is due is the key. We find peace in our relationship with God and not in things this world deems important.

Prayer Suggestion: Lord, show me today how to keep my thoughts fixed on You.

Quicklook: Isaiah 26:1–9
