3.2.19 Praise & Prayer Prompt: Peace That Passes All Understanding

PRAISE & PRAYER PROMPT ••• Yesterday, I had lunch with a friend of mine and it’s the first time I’ve seen her since she recommitted her life to Christ.
I was blown away, not just by the changes in her spirit, but literally her physical expression.
The last few times I’ve seen her, she looked stressed and anxious.
But yesterday, her face wore an expression of peace and serenity.
It’s the face of a woman who has experienced God’s peace that surpasses all understanding (Philippians 4:7).
Life isn’t perfect for her and she has her share of struggles, but she knows Who is in control.
It was a beautiful thing to see.
Isaiah 26:3 says, “You will keep in perfect peace all who trust in you, all whose thoughts are fixed on you!”
It’s a matter of daily focus and a commitment to keep our eyes trained on Jesus.
But to see this verse in action yesterday was so incredibly special.
Today, as you pray, thank God for giving peace to all who trust in Him.
Thank Him that His peace defies logic or explanation, but is something we can experience any time we surrender ourselves to Him, no matter our circumstances.
And pray that the Holy Spirit will remind you often to do just that.
To be anxious for nothing (Philippians 4:6), and cast your cares on Him (1 Peter 5:7).
