God’s Perfect Peace

philippians-4-7

“His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus.” Philippians 4:7 (NLT)

Believing prayer ushers in God’s peace. Not a random, nebulous, earthly peace, but His peace. Imported from heaven. The same tranquility that marks the throne room, God offers to you.

Do you think He battles anxiety? You suppose He ever wrings His hands or asks the angels for antacids? Of course not. A problem is no more a challenge to God than a twig is to an elephant. God enjoys perfect peace because God enjoys perfect power.

And He offers His peace to you. A peace that will “guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus.” Paul employs a military metaphor here.

The Philippians, living in a garrison town, were accustomed to the Roman sentries maintaining their watch. Before any enemy could get inside, He had to pass through the guards. God gives you the same offer. His supernatural peace overshadows you, . . . guarding your heart. — Max Lucado, Come Thirsty: No Heart too Dry for His Touch

Describe a time when the peace of God helped you through a difficult time.
