His Abiding Peace

TODAY’S VERSE
“Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.”
Philippians 4:6-7 (NIV)

TODAY’S THOUGHT
What do we have to do to experience the peace that Paul is writing about? Do we have to strive for it? Is it something we have to earn? Is there a special prayer we need to recite? No, it is nothing we do, it is something we accept. Paul shares the secret. He shares that we need to present every situation to God and then rest in Him. He tells us not to be anxious about anything but to give everything to God in prayer. It is coming into His presence in prayer that we find our peace. It is focusing our attention on His almighty power, His extravagant love, and His particular awareness of our situation that we are suddenly ushered into a consciousness of His peace. This is our home. His peace transcends any circumstance. This is where we belong, but somehow we slip out of this awareness. We are like a bird that is flying, constantly looking for the sky. All we need to do is open our eyes. We are loved by God, He is constantly aware of us, and His peace transcends all our circumstances. Today, let us open our eyes and become deeply aware of His peace. 

TODAY’S PRAYER
Father, thank You for Your abiding presence. Thank You for Your constant love for me. Help me today be fully aware of all that You are. Help me experience the peace that You have for me.
AMEN
