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 comprehension, shall guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. (NAS) Philippians 4:6-7
What do you worry about? Do you dwell on the unforeseen? Do you worry about imaginary events that never happen? Do you worry over people or matters which you have no control over? Do you worry when you have nothing to worry about?
Which do you spend more time doing, worrying or praying? The Bible tells us, don’t worry about anything. . . but pray about everything!
The next time that you find yourself a worried mess, get alone with God. Begin by praising Him for who He is and then unload your heart. God will not be surprised by what you tell Him, He already knows all about it! But, after you’ve made your requests known to Him, don’t miss out on expressing your appreciation to Him. Thank Him for all He’s done for you. . . and all that He will do for you. . . “And the peace of God, which surpasses all comprehension, shall guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.” What an incredible promise: God’s peace will stand guard over your heart and mind! Notice that it doesn’t say that your problems will go away, but, that you will experience a peace, a quiet confidence, regardless of what is going on around you. I don’t know about you, but I find it’s a great trade-off, I get rid of worry and in return receive peace from God. Which will you choose?
