Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.

The Sustaining Power of Peace

Philippians 4:6-7 (HCSB)
     6 Don’t worry about anything, but in everything, through prayer and petition with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God. 7 And the peace of God, which surpasses every thought, will guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.

Father in stressful times when so much may seem uncertain I thank you for the peace you make available to us. Your peace is stronger than our fears, greater than our finite understanding, more enduring than our feeble defenses and reassuring beyond our imagination.

You guard our hearts and minds with the security of your wisdom and the power of your love. You say to us “fear not” and so we will not fear because of our simple trust in Your Word. Your promise of peace and protection is more comforting than anything that may assail our faith. How true the Scripture is: “ You will keep in perfect peace all who trust in you, all whose thoughts are fixed on you!”  Isaiah 26:3 (NLT)

Thank you Father, that through Your Son, the Lord Jesus Christ, we can relax and experience your peace that passes all understanding and gives such a sustaining comfort to our souls.
