God’s peace is greater than all the wisdom and knowledge found anywhere in this world. There are no words that describe the relief it brings to the human soul. It is in the quiet depth of His presence where all is made clear without the analytical need of my mind to understand. This is where faith is born. I don’t need to understand. I believe because He is. My mind is not focused on human reason, but on His promise of peace–not the fleeting peace the world offers, but His peace which is lasting and real.
He will keep me in His peace when my mind is focused on Him. In this place of release of everything that plagues my life, I discover His peace that guards my heart. This “letting go and letting God” takes care of every concern of my mind and heart. I discover sweet release of my human limitation, and accept all of God’s faithfulness to handle what I have entrusted to Him.
When I have given Him my concerns and gained His peace, I am able to understand the greatest truths of His Word. In the place where all that I am is controlled by all He is–where His peace is my constant promise–I will know His heart, and understand greater truths than my analytical human mind could have ever understood.
“The peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus” (Philippians 4:70, NIV).
