4Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say, rejoice. 5Let your reasonablenessd be known to everyone. The Lord is at hand; 6do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. 7And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. 8Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things. 9What you have learnede and received and heard and seen in me—practice these things, and the God of peace will be with you. – Philippians 4:4-7 (ESV)
The peace that surpasses all understanding. A peace of heart beyond our grasp, beyond what makes sense to us. This is what Jesus offers those who trust in Him. It is peace that doesn’t rely on circumstances. Instead, even – especially – in times of trouble, with Jesus we have peace. We find rest. We know He is with us through times of uncertainty and anxiety.
Tonight, trust in God. Rest in His peace. Let the above passage soak into your soul. Don’t mull over the troubles we face today but meditate on His Word and the Greatest Truth of God, our Creator and Sustainer.
Sleep well dear friends. Let God’s love fill you, knowing everything is in the Lord’s hands.
