Philippians 4:77 “And the peace of God,which surpasses allcomprehension, will guardyour hearts and your mindsin Christ Jesus.” Phil 4:7
Notice that we entered thispassage in anxiety, withworry, and we came out ofthe passage with peace.*Between the two wasprayer.
Have things changed?Well, not the circumstances.The storm may still beraging, the waves still rollinghigh, the thunder stillresounding.
Although the storm has notabated, something hashappened in us.*Something has happenedto our soul and to our mind.
In our anxiety we want Godto change everythingaround us."Give us this.""Dont let this happen.""Open up this door, now!"
But we come to the pointwhere we pray,"Oh, God, change me!"Prayer is the secret ofpower. We enter with worry,we can come out in peace.
“And the peace of God …will guard your hearts andyour minds in Christ Jesus.”God’s peace, like a sentinel,by Christ’s intervention,guards and patrols before
the heart’s door, preservingit from the intrusion ofanxious fearsandalarms.
Gods peace guards us fromanxiety, doubt, and worry.
Phroureo (froo-reh-o)means “will guard” –is a military term used ofsoldiers on guardduty.
*The picture would havebeen familiar to thePhilippians, since theRomans stationed troops inPhilippi to protect theirinterests in that city.
Just as soldiers guard andprotect a city, so Godspeace guards and protectsbelievers whoconfidentlytrust in Him.
