How To Protect Our Peace

Godís peace is unlike what the world calls by that name.

It is unaffected by circumstances, and it has keeping power, protecting our minds from negative thoughts and our hearts from detrimental emotions.

The apostle Paul tells us in Philippians chapter four how to protect our peace. We need to remember that Paul was at that time writing from a Roman prison.

He has been unjustly imprisoned and was in danger of execution and chained to a prison guard 24 hours a day. Paul, despite going through this difficult moment in his life kept talking about joy and peace.

The peace Paul describes is very real and practical. He tells us his contentment is a learned quality. (Philippians 4:11).

The key to experiencing this peace is by refusing anxiety and choosing instead to trust our sovereign God with lifeís trials.

True peace does not mean the absence of hardship but rather a sense of tranquillity and serenity even in the midst of lifeís challenges.

This peace surpasses all comprehension, and cannot be explained in terms of human logic. This divine serenity is deeply satisfying and far beyond our human understanding.

It is not something we can work up. It originates from God himself. In Christ Jesus we have received Godís gift of peace. (Ephesians 2:14).

Godís peace is not affected by circumstances, and it has keeping power, protecting our minds from troubling thoughts and our hearts from negative emotions.

The key is to be God-centred and focus on Jesus. He will surely keep you in perfect peace no matter what.

So focus all your thoughts on Jesus today. He is the prince of peace and as you focus on Jesus instead of your difficuties you will walk in His peace and live a victorious Christian life.

God bless!
