Experience God’s Peace

Today’s Encouragement is Philippians 4:6-7 NLT Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done. [7] Then you will experience God’s peace, which exceeds anything we can understand. His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus.

Experience God’s Peace-

Notice that Paul says, confidently… ‘Then you WILL experience God’s Peace’! When? As a result of, choosing prayer instead of worry, telling God everything you need with a heart of gratitude and thankfulness… the result of this is God’s Peace!

We cannot know the Peace of God and also choose to worry. Worry is a common form of fear, as is anxiety. When we ask someone why they are so worried or anxious the answer is often “I’m afraid that…”.  Repeatedly God speaks to us through the Bible – “Do Not Fear”, He says this is so many ways!  I am always with you, I have prepared a place for you, I am your protection, your fortress, your shade, your deliverer, your father, i am your Savior, and I am everything that you need!

My friend, what more can God say, or do to assure us that He is our Peace, and that He longs for us to know His Peace! His Peace is confident Faith in the face of Trouble. Daniel-in-the-lion’s-den type of Peace.

And now, we know how! – He has told us in this passage – We can and will experience His Peace!

Help us Lord, to turn from fear to Faith, prayerfully, thankfully bringing our every need to You in confident prayer, and so, to truly experience Your Peace.

He is our Peace
