Paper Meditations: Peace Eternal – Peace Unlimited

Meditations on Philippians 4:6-7

Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done. Then you will experience God’s peace, which exceeds anything we can understand. His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus.


God’s peace is his presence. Being in his presence means only his peace. If we could imagine just the atmosphere around his throne — all is in perfect harmony and peace. All the way it should be.

Ultimately, the problem of sin doesn’t disrupt this. Why? Because as soon as there was sin, there was a Savior. He both knew it was coming and had a plan to deal with it. Therefore, nothing is out of the realm of his Plan and thus perfect peace.

When we know the outcome, we tend to be at peace even if in the moment there seems to be chaos. We know the One who knows the outcome and has something about it. We have his peace.
