Peace of God: Philippians 4:7

7 And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.

Philippians 4:7 (NIV)

Peace is something we all seem to search for. I just need a few minutes peace is an often-heard comment. How do we experience God’s peace?

When we put our problems in God’s hands, His supernatural peace calms our minds, getting rid of our anxious thoughts. How can we do this? When we are anxious, we need to reach out to God in prayer, letting go of our concerns; trusting Him.

New Living Translation
You will keep in perfect peace all who trust in you, all whose thoughts are fixed on you!

Isaiah 26:3 (NLT)

Letting go of our worries and anxieties frees our minds; allowing us to focus on positive things. Trust lets us relax and experience God’s supernatural peace, a peace that transcends our understanding. We may not always get the result we want. However, God is with us and will help us deal with any inner turmoil.

Having Jesus Christ in our hearts and minds lets us focus on kindness, contentment, love, and helping one another, bringing peace to our relationships with others.

Who do you reach out to with your anxiety and worries? Do you reach out in prayer for the peace of God?

Prayer; Our Heavenly Father, we thank You for Your grace and compassion toward us. Teach us to give You our worries and concerns. Let us prayerfully reach out, finding the peace of God. Like the beautiful open flowers of the anemone, may we be open-minded and open-hearted to Christ. Amen

  1. The only thing that truly calms my fears and anxieties is God. When We feel anxious we can tend to lean on other things but the only true source of peace comes from God and prayer is truly calming.

    1. Amen! I like the way you stated to surrender to God, what causes us anxiety. It really is a surrender; we give Him our worries and don’t go back later and pick them up again. It is always good to hear from you, Brenda! πŸ’–πŸŒ·πŸŒΊ

  2. Amen. Always a needed message in our world of troubles. But we know that Jesus has overcome the world. Therefore He can guide us through our tough spots and hold onto us when we’re struggling to hold onto Him. The Holy Spirit reminds us to tuck in tight to our Creator and trust Him with our anxieties. It really is a calming message. Who can help us more than the one who created us and knows us as intimately as knowing how many hairs are on our heads. πŸ™‚β€ Have a peaceful God filled week Jeanne. πŸ₯°πŸŒΊπŸŒžπŸπŸ’–
