God’s peace

27 July 2022
‘The peace of God…will guard your hearts and your minds.’

Whatever circumstances you’re facing today, you can have peace. There’s a lovely and powerful prayer towards the end of 2 Thessalonians 3 that sums it up pretty well: ‘May the Lord of peace Himself grant you His peace at all times and in every way [that peace and spiritual well-being that comes to those who walk with Him, regardless of life’s circumstances]. The Lord be with you all’ (v.16 AMP). God has no worries or problems because He controls everything, and as we learn to trust Him, ‘the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus’.

One Christian author put it like this: ‘If you lived in a town constantly harassed by enemy raids, one option for the military would be to send troops to actually live beside you. They wouldn’t just provide protection during an attack, they would dissuade the enemy from launching future attacks. This is the implication in Philippians 4:7. The Holy Spirit has set up a garrison [a stronghold…a defence army…an occupying force] within us. And God’s garrison of peace will indwell your heart and mind, protecting you, and healing the wounds of worry and fear that threaten to invade your life. It’s the kind of peace that transcends human understanding because it’s God-powered and Spirit-connected. “We have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have gained access by faith into this grace in which we now stand” (Romans 5:1-2 NIV).’

The psalmist said, ‘He speaks peace to his faithful people’ (Psalm 85:8 NLT). Are there areas in your life where you’re lacking peace right now? Give them to God today.

 

What Now?

Whenever you pray for someone today, end your prayer with the prayer from 2 Thessalonians 3:16. Ask God to bless them with His peace.
