Christian calmness

 “The peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.” (Phil 4:7)

Such is the promise. We shall be lifted in spirit above the circumstances through which we have to track our way.

Two friends were travelling together in Switzerland. One ascended the Rigi and stayed in the hotel at the top of the mountain. The other remained below. While they were separated a violent thunderstorm broke over the valley. The friend down below, telegraphing to the friend on the summit, said: “There’s an awful storm raging down here.” The reply was, “Come up here; we’re above the storms.”

So it is that by the way of prayer and supplication with thanksgiving the believer is lifted into “the peace of God which passeth all understanding”—that unruffled calm which can never be disturbed.

There we may sing;

“The storm may roar around me,

My heart may low be laid;

But God is round about me,

And can I be dismayed?”
