Psalm 34:14 AMP … Depart from evil and do good; seek, inquire for, and crave peace and pursue (go after) it!

From NetBible Ps 34:14

  • seek[01245] = search out, require, desire, request
  • pursue[07291] = run after, chase, attend closely

Philippians 4:1-9 NASB … Therefore, my beloved brethren whom I long to see, my joy and crown, in this way stand firm in the Lord, my beloved.

2 I urge Euodia and I urge Syntyche to live in harmony in the Lord. 3 Indeed, true companion, I ask you also to help these women who have shared my struggle in the cause of the gospel, together with Clement also and the rest of my fellow workers, whose names are in the book of life.

4 Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say, rejoice! 5 Let your gentle spirit be known to all men. The Lord is near. 6 Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. 7 And the peace of God, which surpasses all comprehension, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.

8 Finally, brethren, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is of good repute, if there is any excellence and if anything worthy of praise, dwell on these things. 9 The things you have learned and received and heard and seen in me, practice these things, and the God of peace will be with you.

There seems to be 5 things we can do to have ‘The Peace of God’ guard our hearts

  1. Live in harmony
    From NetBible Phil 4:2
    >>harmony[5426] = agree, be of the same mind in the Lord
  2. Help fellow workers
    From NetBible Phil 4:3
    >>help[4815] = assist, succor
  3. Rejoice in the Lord always!
    From NetBible Phil 4:4
    >>rejoice[5463] = be glad, joyful
  4. Let your gentleness be evident
    From NetBible Phil 4:5
    >>gentleness[1933] = mildness, patience
  5. Pray away anxiety
    From NetBible Phil 4:6
    >>anxious for nothing[3309] = troubled for nothing, don’t worry or fret
    .
    MSG … Don’t fret or worry. Instead of worrying, pray. Let petitions and praises shape your worries into prayers, letting God know your concerns.

And 2 more to dwell/abide with ‘The God of Peace’!

  1. Dwell on the truth
    From NetBible Phil 4:8
    >>dwell[3049] = think on, consider, reckon
  2. Practice the truth
    From NetBible Phil 4:9
    >>practice[4238] = do, exercise, perform

 

Now may the Lord of peace Himself grant you His peace (the peace of His kingdom) at all times and in all ways [under all circumstances and conditions, whatever comes]. The Lord [be] with you all. -2Thess 3:16 AMP
