Peace That Passes All Understanding

When do I really feel at peace?

Not often enough and the reason is 100% me getting in the way. How often have I completely missed what I am looking for because I am trying so hard to find it? The same goes for peace. I am so busy trying to find it that when I have it, I don’t recognize it. This is not right and definitely not how it has to be.

Here’s a thought, maybe it’s time for me to stop looking for peace and realize that it’s already there, waiting for me to experience it. I just have to give the situation to God and watch Him work. Wait a sec… the bible says something about this:

“do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.”

– Philippians 4:6-7

God is so good and so faithful and He is the only thing I need to have peace that passes all understanding. If only I would remember this every minute of every day, how much more peaceful would my days be. God handles these situations so much better than I do, why am I constantly trying to take on His work? It’s so easy to get caught up in the situation and forget that He has already been there and seen that. We just need to trust in His word and His plan for our lives and let him work.

I write this as an encouragement and a reminder to myself and anyone else who finds themselves unable to find peace. Stop trying to find peace and instead lift the situation up to God and patiently wait for Him.

God bless you and yours.
