~ The Peace Of God … works on commission ~

Peace is available, but NOT automatic.

You have a part to play if you are going to walk in the Peace of God.

Philippians 4:6-7 ~ 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
understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ
Jesus.

The word “guard” in verse 7 is an interesting word. The literal translation is: “a watcher in advance.” It is a military word that describes what we understand to be a “point man.” If you have been in the military, you know that a point man has the responsibility to lead his team safely through enemy territory while detecting and avoiding the enemy’s traps. The point man keeps the team safe while maneuvering them into the most advantageous position. The point man is ultimately responsible for every life on the team. If the point man fails, the team could die.

God has given us the greatest Point Man available, the Peace of God. The same Peace that Jesus had with the Father.

John 14:27 ~ Peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you; not
as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.

I was working a job years ago that paid me on commission. I was thinking about a sale I had just made and the Lord spoke to me out of the blue and said, “Peace works on commission.” I was confused for minute, and then I realized that God didn’t mean “commission” as in being paid a percentage for a sale, but this:

commission, definition: the act of granting certain powers or the authority to carry out a particular task or duty.

You have an opportunity every day to ask God to lead and guide you by His Holy Spirit. Peace is a present day ministry of the Holy Ghost and you must commission your Point Man (Peace) into your future by prayer. Prayer changes the NOW by preparing your future with Peace. No matter what you are doing or where you are going, you can travel in Peace if you pray before you leave.

Prayer paves the road with Peace. Don’t walk into a future that is not prepared by prayer and conditioned with Peace.
