The Peace Of God
“And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.” Philippians 4:7, NKJV
There is a peace that passes all our understanding. I have seen this peace on the face of believers in the darkest hours of their life. It is a peace that comes only from God and a peace that comes only from knowing and walking with God.
I’ve not seen that peace on the face of unbelievers nor have I seen that peace in the midst of this unbelieving society in which we live. It is a peace that is reserved for those only who know and walk with the God of the Bible.
There is another promise in this verse that is important for us to remember. This verse also tells us that this kind of peace will guard our hearts and minds.
There are several things we need to guard our hearts and minds from; mainly the enemy comes to destroy our hearts and minds through all kinds of mental, emotional, and physical temptations.
The peace that comes from God will guard our hearts and minds from the fiery darts that the wicked one uses against us in an attempt to destroy the work that God is doing in our hearts and minds.
Be encouraged today in knowing that there is a peace that comes from knowing God and walking with God that will guard your hearts and minds against all the filth that comes from the enemy that he has brought into this world.
