Meditation Thought: “Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.” (Philippians 4:6-7)
“Hearts and minds in Christ Jesus” – Send up the requests in a container of prayer, supplication and thanksgiving – and God sends back answers in a mantle of peace, which serves to protect us, to warm us, to enfold us together with Jesus within the mantle. The more transactions we have, the more exciting, fulfilling and effective the results become. The partnership under the mantle becomes stronger, the mantle becomes even more effective protection from chaos and evil. We become confident in every circumstance, knowing that we have power and protection for every possible contingency – when our hearts and our minds are in Christ Jesus, they are in the best of care; as long as He is surrounding them, they are protected, loved, and have His superior strength supporting them, reinforcing them. His blood surges through them, revitalizing them, sending them to new heights of accomplishment. It is as if we are receiving a blood transfusion under that mantle of peace which encloses us together. Others can see the results in our thinking as we share ideas, in our actions as we are prompted to unselfish love. They may or may not be aware of the blood transfusion that is the basis of the energy which they see manifested and to which they are drawn – but for those who do become aware, they too, can come to receive a transfusion.
