Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus” (Philippians 4:6-7, NIV).

There is a peace that passes all human understanding. It is Christ's peace, and no other man has the power to take it from me. No person can wreck that calm. Only I destroy His peace in my life when I allow life's worries to plague my mind and spirit. I am the one who gives welcome to fear. I open the door to the enemy who steals and destroys. The enemy stirs my human worry, but I am the one who opens my mind to his lies and terror. 

Today I decide to allow nothing to disturb the calm I have in Jesus Christ. I must stop all distractions and seek Him until His peace once more settles my mind and spirit. Those that have the power to rob me of my peace and joy will not be allowed to disturb my peace of mind and calm of heart. 

Each problem I face will be an instruction in the way to discover and keep His peace. Each interruption...each struggle...each situation trains me in the way I should go. Every earthly problem I face has the power to teach me the enduring presence of His peace. And when it is mine, nothing shall disturb my peace in Him. Nothing shall break the peace I have found in His love. Nothing.
