Peace That Passes ALL Understanding...

Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. 
Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done.
Then you will experience God’s peace, which exceeds anything
we can understand. His peace will guard your hearts and
minds as you live in Christ Jesus.
Philippians 4:6-7 NLT

This is the scripture that was my devotional today.  I love it because it reminds us that on our own we can do nothing but worry and fret.  I am slowly learning that instead of worrying and fretting over things I can't change anyway I need to pray.  God created all that there is and while I may have created the circumstances I am in, He can and will give me the peace I need to get through.  Verse 7 says God's peace is greater than anything we can understand...WOW!!  Think about that for a moment...we can't understand it but it is exactly what He will give us to guard our hearts and minds as we live in Him.  

Today, no matter what is causing you to worry or fret, God already knows about it...just tell Him and thank Him for all He has done and will do in your life.  Your blessings are MORE than what you have to worry about!  Begin to pray through this situation and let the peace that God has filter into your entire being.  By the time you are done praying about everything you won't feel so burdened down with worry.

Have a blessed day full of the peace of God!!


  1. That is one of my favorite passages, and one I struggle with more than any other.
