A Short Study of Philippians 4:6-7

“Be careful for nothing; but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God. And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.”
(Philippians 4:6-7)

The Scriptural cure for anxious care and worry for a child of God is a continual and constant realization of true peace with God through the Lord Jesus Christ. The natural man knows nothing of THIS peace, and that is why it is too much for him to grasp. This peace is founded upon the blood of the Lord Jesus Christ and the righteousness He accomplished on Calvary to enable God to be both a just God and a Saviour to His people (Colossians 1:19-23). Christ is the One Who made and sustains this peace between God and His people, sinners saved by grace. This peace is known and realized as the Holy Spirit convicts us of our sin and drives us continually to Christ Who is our peace as we are brought unto God for all salvation, comfort, and assurance “by the blood of Christ.” (Ephesians 2:13-14)

There are many, many things in the world that give us cause for worry, but these things can only be overcome as we fix our minds and hearts upon Christ, “The Prince of Peace.” (Isaiah 9:6)
