[Manna - March 1]
The peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:7
IT is not our own peace that is here referred to. It is the peace of God--the peace which comes to us from a realization of God's power and goodness and willingness to hold us by His right hand as His children. The thought is that this peace stands guard continually, as a sentinel, to challenge every hostile or worrying thought or fear. It keeps the Christian's mind so that he at heart has peace with the Lord, fellowship, communion--and it guards his mind also, his reasoning faculties, instructing him and assuring him respecting the divine power and wisdom and love.
