TODAY’S TOPIC: On Guard
SCRIPTURE: And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. – Philippians 4:7
Recommended Reading: Philippians 4:4-9
How about a Greek lesson for today? The word “guard” in Philippians 4:7 is the term phroureo, which is used in 2 Corinthians 11:32 to describe how the governor of Damascus guarded the city gates to keep Paul from escaping. The same word is used in 1 Peter 1:5, which says we “are shielded by God’s power until the coming of the salvation that is ready to be revealed in the last time” (NIV, emphasis added).
According to Philippians 4, we have the transcendent peace of God protecting our hearts and minds. Our part is explained in verse 6: “Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God” (NIV).
The worries and cares of life can overwhelm us at times, but when we bring our worries to God in prayer, His peace guards our hearts and minds like a soldier guarding a city. Trust Him to guard your heart and mind today.
We need to cultivate patience in the midst of our trials [knowing] that God is actively working on our behalf to bring us to a better day.
