Philippians 4:7
The Peace Of God

7 And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.

To know everything is going the way God intended
Gives me peace, though all around is upended
That offer of peace is to people of faith extended
When their hearts and minds are stayed on Him.

One who makes requests to Him has the blessed assurance
God is not going to test them beyond their endurance
And they consistently follow Him in their pursuance
Of their commitment to the will of God.

The heart is at rest because of their implicit trust
In God’s plans and purposes which they know are best
Though we don’t know the extent of all God’s rest
The present peace is enough for me.

When my mind is under the control of what’s right
And I am walking by faith, not just by sight
The present peace of God sheds holy light
On the things I don’t naturally understand.

The reason all this works without my understanding
Is, the peace of God is beyond natural comprehending
I’m limited by time; God is without beginning or ending
So I’ll just enjoy His peace for what it is.

“Thy peace is operational in my heart today, O God. I am enjoying answered prayers. Situations in life seem to be working well beyond my manipulations – and I am thankful. In the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, Amen.”
