Have you ever had something unfortunate happen, gotten ‘bad’ news or lost something of value, and it didn’t bother you?

You felt you should be anxious or upset, but you just weren’t?

You tried to get upset, but you didn’t?

Maybe even tried to cry, but couldn’t.

Do you know why? It’s because you’ve been praying for peace, or someone has been praying for you.

Peace is one of God’s greatest promises…

Philippians 4:6-7 (NKJV)

 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 understanding, WILL GUARD your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.

God’s peace will literally guard and protect your heart and mind.

When God’s peace guards your heart and mind…worry, doubt, fear, anxiety and stress can’t get in, sometimes even if you try to force it in.

In spite of what’s going on in your life you have a sense of calmness and ease because you trust God. You may not see a solution or resolution, but you have peace that no one can even understand…not even you.

But, isn’t that what God promised in Philippians 4:7?

Stop TRYING to worry and enjoy your peace.




God bless you! I'm a husband, father and ordained Minister since 1996. I serve as an Associate Minister at Oak Spring Church Arlington TN, a suburb of Memphis. I'm a professional Copywriter for a Fortune 500 company, published Gospel songwriter and owner of an independent label, Al-Go-Rhythm Music. My main spiritual gift is Exhortation...I'm a natural encourager. I love the word of God and sharing it from a "Wow, I never thought of it like that before" perspective. There's so much fresh revelation in God's word that is just as relevant today as it was as it unfolded. I hope my daily devotionals enhance your walk with God, taking you beyond BLESSED to BLESSTIFIED.
