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.

    Do what you have to do from your stand and rest in the Lord in content and not aspiring through wrong for what is not of yours and wait for that to reach you in His time through your honest efforts.

    I find it interesting that in 4:6 the word "careful" is replaced in my bible (NKJV) with "anxious". "Anxious" explains it to me better than "careful". I didn't understand the usage of "careful" in this context.

    We should think on whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise.
