In life, none of us escape the reality of having to deal with stressful situations. We are all prone to have problems in our lives that may cause us to worry, and at times possibly lose hope. Life just has a way of draining us at times. However, we are able to renew ourselves through having the peace of God in our lives.
The Apostle Paul helps the Philippian church understand how to have the peace of God operating in their lives so that the challenges of life don't drain them of the joys that can be experienced. Even in the face of difficulties, we can have God's peace that keeps us grounded when we exercise adoration for God, and the proper cultivation of our spiritual lives, coupled with the preservation of our inner being.
