each&every day, ( except weekends ) I share a Biblical verse and a related thought on the verse with a small group of brothers, sisters and family … early this 10 May, I received this text .,.
‘ You faithfully share with me every day. Today, I am sharing with you. If my calendar is correct, today is the remembrance of Joey’s death. I don’t know what such a day is like for you, but please consider these thoughts on Philippians 4:7…
‘ And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. ‘
“ God does the guarding……through peaceIt is beyond my understandingWill guard your hearts and minds……in Christ Jesus
It is not I, but the peace of God, that does the guarding. He guards both my heart (soul, core, center) and my mind (could be one with the heart as often described in the OT). God’s peace is beyond my understanding. Seek comfort in knowing how much more he is beyond me. The peace is delivered (through the Holy Spirit?) That guards our hearts and minds (btw, this is also collective to the church of Philippi) in Christ Jesus. God the Father authors the peace, it is delivered by the Holy Spirit, it is guarded in us by Jesus.
I pray for you today the peace of God which passes, surpasses, exceeds,(in fact is inestimable) ALL understanding.”
