Let the Peace of God Rule

Philippians 4:6-7 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.' A lot of people can quote those scriptures, but how many of us can live them? Has anyone ever told you about a problem in their life, and you told them that you would pray for them. You said that God has them and that everything would be alright. Ever done that? But then you are hit with a problem or situation that is hard; and you get angry with God because you now have an issue to deal with that you didn't see coming. Do we just tell people that we are praying for them as an act of kindness, or do we truly believe what the Word of God says? Straight to the point question. Do we truly believe? It's easy to tell others to pray because God is watching over them; but do we pray because we believe that God is actually watching over us? It's like a sponge. Whatever the sponge soaks up is what is going to come out when it is squeezed. Just like us. Whatever we put in is what is going to come out of us. Remember, Jesus said that out of the abundance of the heart, the mouth speaks (Matthew 12:34). But the Word tells us to trust God, believe God, and to have faith in God. It doesn't say to trust Him only if the weather is perfect or if the birds are singing or if everyone is well. 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 says 'Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, in everything give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.' Colossians 3:15 says 'And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to which also you were called in one body; and be thankful.' God does have everything covered, but we must trust Him. Period. The Word of God is not based on what it looks like or how you feel. It is the everlasting Word of Almighty God, and it works! We must trust God and know that He is watching over us. Let the peace of God rule in your heart.
