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. Philippians 4:7
After we have followed the instructions in verse 6, and have prayed over all of our worries, we experience a wonderful result: God’s peace. It doesn’t mean that all of our prayers are immediately answered, but it does mean that we experience the “side effect” if you will have answered prayer, peace.
Think about this: God is in eternity. We are in time. We live one day at a time (at least we’re supposed to). God sees everything all at once. When we pray about something that’s going on today, God already knows the resolution of the problem whether it’s resolved 10 minutes, 10 days or 10 years from now. He knows the peace we will have when that time comes.
When we turn our worries over to God in prayer, He gives us something that does not rightfully belong to us yet. God gives us peace as if everything has already been taken care of. Now, this peace “exceeds anything we can understand,” so just enjoy it and thank God for what is to come.
