Sunday Stillness: A guard against anxiety
I have quoted this passage to myself innumerable times. The complete quote without the words left out (shown by the ellipses) say:
“Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God.
And the peace of God, which surpasses all comprehension, shall guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.” – Philippians 4:6,7 NASB.
I’m still not sure I’ve plumbed its depths. For example, I’m not sure what the peace of God guarding our hearts really means. Does it mean that after we have prayed and given thanks that genuine faith in God’s power, goodness, and ultimate ability to sort out our situation is so firm that not a sliver of doubt can get in to disturb our peace?
What does it mean to you?
