Philippians 4:7 – And the peace of God, which surpasses all comprehension, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
Philippians 4:7 NASB
What do you think of when you think of a guard? Often times the image of a big burly security guard comes to mind. Or even some elaborate security system or uniformed officer is what we picture as a guard. Yet what does Paul mention here that will guard our hearts and minds? Peace.
Not what you would expect to be the guard of our hearts and minds, and yet peace is what keeps us focused on the things that we need to focus on. Peace is what calms us. That is the perfect guard of our hearts and minds. We do not want to allow Satan the opportunity to stress us or cause us difficulty or fear. The peace of God guards our hearts and minds. Are we trusting in that peace to guard our hearts and minds today?
