Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. (Philippians 4:6-7)

Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me. (Psalm 23:4)

Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, since as members of one body you were called to peace. And be thankful. (Colossians 3:15)

These are indeed perilous times. With war and terrorist attacks common, and threats to our religious freedom from every direction in America, the Biblical Christian may feel especially vulnerable these days. At times it seems there is no possibility for peace.

However, the situation is not any more dire than that faced by our Old and New Testament forefathers. And they did not have all the good news that we have readilly available today. The Bible tells us that we have close at hand the peace of God. This peace transcends all understanding and is a perfect peace! We have reason to be thankful.

Glory be to God, hallelujah and amen!
