"And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus." - Philippians 4:7
In these verses Paul explains how to live the Christian life the way God intended us to. First, he reminds us that when life's difficulties surround us, we are to turn away from the difficulties and focus our attention on the Lord, delighting in Him. This causes our attitude to change and our hearts are filled with joy as we build our relationship with Him. Secondly, we need to get things in perspective and remember that time is short and our opportunity of unselfishly serving Him is running out. We cannot waste this opportunity. You see difficulties are really opportunities to trust and earn eternal reward. Thirdly, stop worrying and fretting about the difficulties, and instead pray, trust, and thank Him in advance for His solution. The result is that He will fill our hearts and minds with a peace that comes only from Him. It is so amazing that it is hard to understand or explain. It is His gift to us to protection His children. It will guard and keep our hearts and minds. Are you at peace today?
