Don’t, Do, and a Promise

Philippians 4:6 tells us: Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God…

Be anxious for…NOTHING
Pray for…EVERYTHING.

But, it doesn’t stop with don’t and do. Notice the ellipsis at the end of that verse. It is only half the sentence. Beyond “don’t do this thing that is in human nature and do this thing that you have to consciously do all the time with thanksgiving in your heart even if times are really super hard,” there is the promise of a beautiful gift.

Philippians 4:7 says: …and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.

The PEACE of GOD which surpasses ALL understanding will GUARD our hearts and minds through CHRIST Jesus.

I know I want that peace. I know I cling to the promise that I will receive that peace that passes all understanding. I know even in the depth of the valley when I’m sinking and overcome with despair, I can seek God, open that line of communication with Him, and receive HIS peace.

What burdens are on your heart, friend? How can I pray for you today?
