Peace of God

th-32

The peace of God which passeth all understanding shall keep your hearts and minds” Philippians 4:7
      
      It is not peace with God, but the peace of God. “The peace that passes all understanding” is the very breath of God in the soul. He alone is able to keep it, and He can so keep it that “nothing shall offend us.” Beloved, are you there?
      
      God’s rest did not come till after His work was over, and ours will not. We begin our Christian life by working, trying and struggling in the energy of the flesh to save ourselves. At last, when we are able to cease from our own work, God comes in with His blessed rest, and works His own Divine works in us.
      
      Oh! have you heard the glorious word
          Of hope and holy cheer;
      From heav’n above its tones of love
          Are lingering on my ear;
      The blessed Comforter has come,
          And Christ will soon be here.
      
      Oh, hearts that sigh there’s succor nigh,
          The Comforter is near;
      He comes to bring us to our King,
          And fit us to appear.
      I’m glad the Comforter has come,
          And Christ will soon be here.
