Philippians 4:6-7 Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your request be made known to God. (7) and the peace of God which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.
Brothers and sisters we are to pray about our circumstances instead of worrying over them.
Be anxious for nothing: Just as the Philippians, we are not to worry about our problems. We are to commit our problems to God in prayer, trusting that He will provide deliverance.
Will Guard: Paul’s choice of a military term implies that our minds are in a battle zone and need to be “protected by a military guard.” The purpose of such a guard in a wartime situation is either to prevent a hostile invasion or to keep the inhabitants of a besieged city from escaping.
Peace of God operates in the same way: to protect the mind from external corrupting influences and to keep it focused on God’s truth.
Brothers and sisters, don’t worry. Pray! In essence, this is what Paul was expressing in this passage of Scriptures.
1. Is there something on your mind that is causing you anxiety?
Pray about it.
2.Does it seem too small to bother God with? Nothing is too small for God to care about. We are to pray about everything just as Paul tells us.
Anxiety robs us of the peace that God offers. Paul reminds us that we don’t have to worry. All we have to do is pray, and then we can have peace of mind, because we know God is at work.
It’s important for you and I to remember that when we worry we are doubting that God can handle our problems. Paul’s words reminds us of God’s promise to handle the things that trouble us.
When you are tempted to worry, use it as a call to prayer. Don’t carry your burden alone.
1. Give them to God and allow Him to handle your problems.
2. Don’t give and take back the same time.
3. Allow God’s peace that “passeth all understanding” to bring you comfort.
1 Peter 5:7 Casting all your care upon Him, for He cares for you.
You and I need to present all our worries, anxieties, and problems to God in order to let Him handle them.
Accept Our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, today. Today is the day of salvation. Now is the accepted time. You may not really have tomorrow. Have a Blessed Day.
