Scripture:   Philippians (NIV) 4:6   Do not be anxious about anything but in every situation, by prayer and thanksgiving, present your requests to God.

7   And the peace of God which transcends all understanding will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. 

Observation:    Peace comes when we know we have presented our needs to the Only One Who truly understands and is able to meet those needs.  When they are left with Him, we can rest in His care and promises.   Then we have peace.  It is not our peace, but His peace that we need.  His peace transcends human understanding.  God’s peace will guard our hearts and minds from worry, undue care, doubt, and thoughts put there by the enemy.

Application:  When I have taken to God those things about which I know very little and can do nothing, I can have peace knowing that I have done the very best thing I could have done even if I had perfect understanding of the matter. 

Prayer:   Lord, you have proved your love for me.  I have peace and can rest in your love!   Amen
