Philippians 4:6-7: “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.”

One of the many ways God has sided with humankind is by way of language. We can literally discover Him when we open the Bible and start reading. The Scriptures appear like corrective lenses through which we can view the Big Three more clearly: God, humanity, and the world.

God communicates. He breathes His Spirit through His Word, and His Word brings life. God spoke the universe into existence; in the same way He speaks life over our dead human spirit. His intention is to revive us. That’s the spiritual reality which offers an amazing opportunity, a door wide open for every person on this planet.

When after His resurrection Jesus entered the room where His followers were hiding, He came with peace. “Peace be with you!” He said. His presence turned everything around. Jesus still has this effect on people. He currently prays for you and me; and He speaks peace over our anxious souls.

Trusting in God diminishes our worries. The peace of God makes everything better, even in the worst of circumstances. It’s the kind of peace that no one can explain. God just is and so is His peace. We can rest in His presence because we belong to Him.

We all come from God. Our souls inside of us know that, and our souls long to return. We need to follow the prodding of our souls. Returning to God closes the cycle and makes everything complete. That’s the secret of God’s peace.

So hold me Jesus,
Cause I’m shaking like a leaf
You have been King of my glory
Won’t You be my Prince of Peace
