You do not need both peace AND understanding

A sufferer once came to a pastor and asked him many questions. The pastor answered, "Kneel here in church and ask Jesus for the answers."

The man replied, "Do you really think I will hear a voice from heaven?" "No," said the pastor, "but by keeping quiet in prayer for several hours before God, you will realize that you can go along without answers to all your problems. This would have been Jesus' answer, and it will quiet you."

You do not need more than His peace, which passes all understanding.

You do not need both peace and understanding, for understanding presupposes qualifications that most of us do not have.

Rev. Richard Wurmbrand, excerpted and edited from 100 Prison Meditations, pp. 16-17.
