The peace of God

"The Lord is near. Do not worry about anything,
but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving,
let your requests be made known to God.
And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding,
will guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus."
Philippians 4:5-7

The answer to our prayer is not the immediate fulfillment of a specific request. Rather, the answer is a living relationship with the "peace of God." What we receive most of all in this amazing venture with God is a deepening clarity of relationship ... What we receive is wisdom. We receive hearts and minds molded and taught in the ways of life and love. What we ultimately receive is the assurance that God is with us, regardless of the way our life changes.
