This verse is telling us that the peace of God will actually “guard” our hearts and our minds. To guard means to protect. What this means is that the peace of God can help you be anxious for nothing.
So in one powerful and profound verse, God is telling us to be anxious for nothing – but at the same time He is telling us exactly how to be able to do this – and that is by going to Him in prayer and telling Him exactly what you will need to handle the problem, and then fully commit and surrender the problem into His hands for His direct handling.
Once you have fully surrendered the entire problem into God’s hands, then He will release His peace into your mind and emotions so He can calm you down and help you to be anxious for nothing.
If you will follow God and His perfect plan for your life – then much, if not all of the stress, anxiety, and burden can be lifted from your life. As a result, you can then learn how to be anxious for nothing and learn how to relax and enjoy this life with much more vigor and vitality in the way that God would really like.
