What does the Bible say.
The Peace of God
In Philippians 4:6 & 7 the Bible says, “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.”
Is it possible to live in peace here on earth before we go to heaven? We can all see from the verse above that, the Apostle Paul thinks the answer is yes! We can also see that having and living in the peace of God is not automatic.
So, how do we experience the peace of God in our lives? “Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God;” Therefore, if we ever wish to enjoy the peace of God in our lives, then we must be willing to invest some time in prayer and thanksgiving.
You are blessed to be a blessing.
