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

There are many blessings for those who receive Jesus Christ as a personal Savior. A clear one is peace. The standard definition of peace is “freedom from war or cessation of violence”! True, many times peace can be looked at as being free from situations of war or the absence of communities fighting each other. Yet there is also another aspect of peace which is the quietness of the spirit in the midst of turmoil.

A good example is one person who can attain all imaginable riches yet feel a raging turmoil within. The person is restless in spite of all accomplishments. On the other hand the believer in Christ may experience a certain comforting calmness while living on far less. He is at peace. Many may wonder how he can be so at peace, not realizing it is a gift from God. “But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law” ( Gal 5:22)

The peace we receive from God has a certain unequaled joy and calmness. You can only know what you have when you are at the top of the world but are filled with anxiety and can’t even go to sleep. But you as a child of God you have the most precious gift which is beyond comprehension and that is why you are the envy of the world.

Prayer today: Lord Father God of Abraham, maker of heaven and earth, I thank you for this peace which surpasses all understanding, a gift from the Holy Spirit, and may that peace guard me in all circumstances and situations, this I pray in Jesus’ name!
