WHO STANDS GUARD OVER YOUR PEACE?

And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:7 (KJV)

Can you imagine God's peace? How great it is? He is not moved like the winds.

Sometimes I think we forget how big our God is. He is big. He is bigger than anything we can imagine. Why do we have a hard time with that? Because we can't comprehend it.Perhaps we need to take that on faith.I mean the verse tells us right up front, God's peace passes all understanding. 

The one thing we can know is He says He will keep our hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. What that means is, because we belong to Christ Jesus, God's peace will stand guard over all our thoughts and feelings. You see His peace is big enough to do this,  far better than we could.

We need God's peace. You can turn on the news or pick up a paper and see their are things going on all over the world that would block our peace. If we let them,  these things could keep our hearts and minds in turmoil and fear. 

We need to remember, we can have peace even in the middle of these things. Why? Because God is standing guard over our thoughts and feelings. And He is bigger than these problems we see.

"Oh Lord, I lift up the people who are in such turmoil in their minds and who have lost their peace. My desire is that you come into their hearts, souls, and minds so that they too can have peace that passes all understanding." Amen.
