How to receive the peace of God that surpasses understanding

Philippians 4:6-8 New King James Version

Rejoice in the Lord always. Again I will say, rejoice!

Let your gentleness be known to all men. The Lord is at hand. Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.

Supplication is a specific type of prayer where you get down on your knees in humility and earnestly ask God to help you or someone you know.

So how do you receive the peace of God that surpasses understanding?

  1. Rejoice in the Lord always.
  2. Prayer, supplication
  3. Thanksgiving.

I recommend that you spend time searching for the exact scriptures that relate to the situation that you’re praying about and pick the one that is most appropriate for you to stand on with confidence and make a prayer or supplication out of it..

Nowadays it’s easy to find scriptures by searching Google for example: (search: scriptures on anxiety, healing, relationships etc .. )

John 14:27 New King James Version

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.


Eirene (Gk.): “peace” or “harmony” is used 92 times in the NT and often refers to the OT sense of shalom, “wellbeing”. The biblical notion of peace is more to do with spiritual warfare.

Peace is one of the greatest blessings that Jesus Christ has given to the World (John 14:27). It is rooted in our reconciliation with God (Luke 2:14; Romans 5:1). It is an inward peace (Romans 15:13; Galatians 5:22) that can branch out to establish peace between individuals, families, and even nations. (Ephesians 2:14-18).

Proverbs 14:30 Amplified Bible

A calm and peaceful and tranquil heart is life and health to the body, but passion and envy are like rottenness to the bones.

In Proverbs, the opposite is always true. So we can say that a restless and anxious heart is death and sickness to the body, and compassion and joy are healthiness to the bones.

Meditate on These Things

Finally, brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy – meditate on these things.
