Peace That Passes All Understanding

Philippians 4:7
        Then you will experience God's peace, which exceeds anything we can understand. His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus. 


     This past year has been extremely tough for my husband and me. The devil has literally tried to destroy our marriage in every single way possible. Thankfully, God has showed out and now our relationship is stronger now than ever and we give all the glory to Him!!

      But, one thing I have struggled with is having peace about things that have happened!!  It has really taken me seeking God's face and learning what peace really is and learning how to access it!!

In John 14:27 when Jesus is about to ascend he says that he is leaving us with the gift of peace!!! So this tells me that we already have peace, we just have to utilize it!!

Peace finally came to me when I felt God saying, "Maggi, I've got this!! And no matter what the outcome is, I'm still in control! I have a plan and it is perfect!!! It is for good and not harm and it is to give you a future and a hope!" How overwhelming it is to know that He's got everything under control, and that he has given us his perfect peace that only he can give! 

This devo was written from the heart of Maggi Sellers. I hope it blesses you!

  1. I LOVE when you share your heart Maggi! I understand that your year has been tough but I have seen your Christian walk with God become stronger than ever!!! One time I was on a pity party about the things in my life and my youngest daughter (Meagan) said ....I know it has been hard mom but you are a better person from it and a stronger Christian than you would have ever been! God really did take the devils evil and turn it for good in my life!!!! We are both so blessed !!!! Love you sweet girl ! Pammie Malone
