“And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.”
That’s a great verse. I love the promise found there. But that “And” at the beginning is a hint that we should read what comes before. Verse 7 isn’t a complete thought in and of itself. Here is what verse 6 says, “Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.”
Is it possible in my humanness to not be anxious today? About anything? Can I have thanksgiving today? I’ve certainly presented my requests to God. Today we find out the results from my Daddy’s PET scan and the bone marrow biopsy that were done last week. Today we get more answers. Am I anxious? You betcha! But I’ve talked to God about it. So…”the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard [my] heart and [my] mind in Christ Jesus.” What a promise.
