Philippians 4:7 NKJV

and the peace of God which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.

There is one thing we have to keep in mind about the peace of God in order to enjoy it. It is not explainable. It does not make sense. We can't look for God's peace in terms of everything being in order and pleasant. That's human peace. The peace of God is supernatural. It is what allowed Daniel to spend a whole night in a lion's den and come out sane. It is what made Paul and Silas pray and sing praises at midnight when their backs were beaten and they had to stand in an uncomfortable position because they were being persecuted for doing what God called them to do. It is what enabled Jesus to sleep in the midst of a horrible life-threatening storm. It is what caused Him to be able to go to the cross and suffer pain and humiliation but never give up on His mission to save us. When we look for God's peace, we do not look for things to change. We look for our hearts to change. We can go from confusion to peace, or from fear to peace by receiving God's supernatural peace by faith. We follow Philippians 4:6 and Matthew 11:28-30 and expect results.
