In today’s epistle at Philippians 4:1-9 is God’s plan for an all encompassing peace. Ignoring it is to forego its promise. Rejoicing in the Lord, being gentle with all, praying in the face of anxiety and focussing on God’s ways, not ours, are what brings God’s peace as the Lord comes near (Phil 4:5) and serves us to address our brokenness, sin, needs and difficulties. Come to the banquet (Matthew 22:9) and taste that the Lord’s peace is good.
