Prayer brings peace
And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
Reading Philippians 4:7 for the hundredth time or more, I never personally grasped what peace that surpasses all understanding looked like until I experienced it. It’s so amazing that I want to teach everyone what God taught me . . . but I think it’s an individual lesson we all must learn.
For me, this kind of peace brings a stillness to my soul and a hope to my heart even when life is crashing in around me on all sides. And it does, often. The closer I get to the Lord, the more junk His enemy tosses at me. But I have that peace, the solid peace that shouldn’t be there in the turmoil, but it is.
My heart is full of gratitude as I thank the Lord for His peace.
Prayer is life changing, so hang on for a wonder-filled, joyous experience as we talk with the Lord of our lives. We hope you will be blessed and encouraged.
