Wesley's Notes for Philippians 4:7


4:7 And the peace of God - That calm, heavenly repose, that tranquility of spirit, which God only can give. Which surpasseth all understanding - Which none can comprehend, save he that receiveth it. Shall keep - Shall guard, as a garrison does a city. Your hearts - Your affections. Your minds - Your understandings, and all the various workings of them; through the Spirit and power of Christ Jesus, in the knowledge and love of God. Without a guard set on these likewise, the purity and vigour of our affections cannot long be preserved.

    I believe that Phillppans is a book by the Lord which tells us to be strong in him no matter what we are going though He is our refuge and strength.

    This chapter tells you exactly what to think on! Often times we are use to the clutter in our minds. Majority of our thoughts are not pure, lovely, honest, not of virtue, or of praise. This helps me cast down those thoughts and refocus and if what I'm thinking does not match the criteria then its time to pray. Paul hit contentment right on the nail, we must be content with such things as we have!
