"And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus." (Philippians 4:7)
This verse is also one I'll look at in a couple of sections.
"And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding . . ."
God's peace is given to us. It replaces the anxious thoughts we give over to God in prayer (see last post in the series). God offers His peace to us.
We may not always understand God's peace. If fact, we often don't. We can have God's peace in the midst of circumstances that should cause us anything but peace. But that is what God offers when we take our anxious thoughts to Him in prayer.
". . . will guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus."
God's peace guards our hearts and minds. It protects us from the anxious thoughts coming back. When we are filled with God's peace, it forms a guard around our heart and our mind to keep things that would steal that peace.
All of this happens as we are in Christ Jesus. If we're not in Christ, we won't receive God's peace.
Have you accepted the peace God offers to you?
Are you remaining in Christ?
