“and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.” (Philippians 4:7, NKJV)
You know, one of the most beautiful benefits of serving the Lord is that, even in the midst of difficult times and tough situations, He gives you a peace that passes all human understanding. An inner calm that is inexplicable.
1. Have you ever gone through a difficult time, and others who knew your struggle were waiting for you to crumble, to crash and burn, yet God spoke a word into your spirit that everything would be alright, and from that word you had peace within?
2. Have you ever had the experience of others waiting and some maybe even hoping, you would cave in and lose your mind yet God gave you peace even in knowing others were hoping for your demise?
3. Have you ever been in a spiritual, physical, emotional or relational storm but God gave you an overwhelming peace while you were going through it?
This is just another reason God is so wonderful. When things get crazy in life, He will put a calmness in your spirit that just lets you rest and ride out the waves of trouble. A peace that cannot be explained or understood. All you know is that in spite of how things look, you know everything is going to be all right. This is God’s gift to His saints. He makes that kind of peace available for you today. This is God’s INEXPLICABLE PEACE!
