Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
God wants me to be at peace and rest about everything?
Yes, because He commands us to not be anxious about anything.
Even my children?
Yes. Even my marriage?
Yes. Even the uncertain future with our broken world?
When God asks us to not be anxious about anything, He knows we are unable to do that in our own strength.
He provides the road map to peace.
With absolutely every piece of your busy life, pray about it.
Seek God’s face about each aspect of your life.
Thank Him for all He has done and will do for you.
When you pray and seek His will with a thankful heart, His peace will wash over you.
His peace, which passes ALL understanding, will arrive.
Not only will His peace arrive, but it will guard your heart and your mind in Christ Jesus.
He will guard your heart against fear.
He will guard your mind against lies.
When you fully submit your requests to God with a thankful heart, He will blanket your heart and soul with a peace which passes all understanding.
When you choose to give ALL of your worries to God, thanking Him for all He is, His peace will take over.
His perfect peace, which we cannot possibly understand.
When you give up control,
When you submit your will to His,
When you thank Him from the top of your head to the tip of your toes for all He has graciously given to you,
He will come, bringing His perfect peace.
He will come.
He wants to come.
He cannot wait to give you His peace.
Keep submitting and thanking, following His will for your life.
Every single day.
You will become radiant with His peace and what a witness that will be of Himself.
The world needs peace.
Only the peace of God will last and what if you, reflecting His perfect peace, could literally show the world a glimpse of God’s saving grace?
What a witness you will be.
