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.

    Dear beloved, I'm praying in agreement with you that God will move to sort your mortgage issues out. Remember that 'the eternal God is your Refuge and underneath you are the everlasting Arms' (Deuteronomy 33: 27) I'm sensing God saying, 'I've got this!' Come on, praiiiise the LORD!

    Verse 6 jumped out at me this morning as I was reading I know that God doesn't put more us than we can bare, but I feel that sometimes He lets things happen to get our attention. I am going through a dark valley with our mortgage company. My prayer life wasn't what it should be and this verse as well as others may me wake up and say listen. God knows all and He just wants you to come and ask.

    I can do all things thru Christ which God strengtheneth me. All things are possible with God we only need to trust his will. For God's thoughts and his ways are higher than us. Jesus knows when and what to provide in any situation. Lets give thanks to the blood of a Lamb and praise Jesus for he is worthy. I love you Jesus help me to be born again all the days of my life Amen
