And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your thoughts in Christ Jesus.
Promise #298: My great peace will guard your heart and thoughts in Jesus.
God wants to impart a peace to us that is so deep and so profound that our minds can't actually fathom it! The Prince of Peace Himself is offering us the very same peace that causes His own heart to be at rest all of the time. (John 14:27)
In the busyness of life, when you feel like you are being pulled apart in many directions, God has promised that His peace will guard both your heart and your mind through Jesus. I like how the Amplified Bible translates Philippians 4:7... And God's peace [shall be yours, that tranquil state of a soul assured of its salvation through Christ, and so fearing nothing from God and being content with its earthly lot of whatever sort that is, that peace] which transcends all understanding shall garrison and mount guard over your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus. (AMP)
Jesus has already secured God's peace for you. This peace cannot be grasped with a human understanding, but can only be received by faith in Jesus Christ. I pray that the overwhelming peace of God will rest upon you today and provide the protection that your heart and mind needs to live at peace, even in the midst of life's storms. Photo by Martin Smith
