January 10

“And the peace of God which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.” Philippians 4:7

Did you notice that the verse begins with the word “and”? This is to connect with the previous verse. Verse 6 admonishes us to take our anxieties and worries to God. So then when we do that the peace of God comes to guard our hearts and minds. I’m impressed by the thought of God’s peace being a GUARD around us. What are guards for? They are stationed to protect valuable things from marauders, from thieves, for instance. Our hearts and minds need a guard because there are thoughts and feelings which want to disturb us. So God gives you His peace to keep such things away.
