in thee.

The words ”because he trusteth in thee” in the context of Isaiah. 26:3, refers to a total trust on Gods truths.

Isaiah 26: 3, is a key verse to a successful, fruitful spiritual life. The things that occupies your mind will control your will, emotion, and eventually your acts (Proverbs 23:7a). Either, your mindset is controlled by Gods truths which always leads to life and peace (Rom. 8:6), or your human and natural mindset (the carnal) which leads to death (Rom.8:6) – fruit of the flesh.
