Inner Lasting Peace
“Be anxious for nothing, 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 comprehension, shall guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus” (Philippians 4:6-7)
These words of the apostle Paul were written while he was in prison. It was not a prison like that of today. It deprived people of daily privileges and some prisons had worse conditions than others. Yet even here Paul said one can have peace. It was a peace he had when he took his anxieties and gave them to God. It wasn’t a peace that money in the bank can provide nor, in fact, anything else in this world. It was a peace that came only from God. There is nothing in this world that could compare with this peace. It enabled Paul to be content in all circumstances in his life, even a prison cell (Philippians 4:11). If you’re not at peace in this world don’t try to find it apart from God. God’s peace never changes when our earthly circumstances do. I would happy to provide you with more information about this peace if you desire it for your life. Have a great week!!
