The peace of God, which surpasses all understanding.
Today’s verse promises inner calm or tranquility to the believer who prays with a thankful attitude. Notice it doesn’t promise what the answer to our prayers will be.
This peace “surpasses all understanding,” which refers to its divine origin. It transcends human intellect, analysis, and insight. No human counselor can give it to you because it’s a gift from God.
The real challenge of Christian living is not to eliminate every uncomfortable circumstance from your life, but to trust the infinite, holy, sovereign, and powerful God in the midst of every situation.
Jesus said, “These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you May have peace. In the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world” (John 16:33). So begin to live on the supernatural plane, accept that you live in a fallen world, and allow God to do His perfect work in you. And God will give you His peace as you confidently entrust yourself to His care.
