“And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.” (Philippians 4:7 KJV)
Anxiety seems to infiltrate our daily lives like mold after a flood; make no mistake! Anxiety, if left unchecked, can be as insidious as black mold.
How can I not be anxious? In Scripture, we read: “Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.” (Philippians 4:6 NIV)
(1) Pray in EVERY situation.
(2) Yes, in E V E R Y situation, pray
(3) Yes, in every situation, place your petitions before God
(4) Pray with thanksgiving, As you present your requests to God.
If it sounds simple and easy, that’s because it is! You need not approach God as though He were unapproachable: “Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.” (Hebrews 4:16 KJV)
You’re His child, made in His image and set free by His only begotten Son: “So God created an in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.” (Genesis 1:27)
As a Christ Follower, you have every right to ask God for your needs. “Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.” (John 14:6 KJV)
Let us pray.
Father, thank you for the life you’ve given me, for my home, my children, my grandchildren, great grandchild and all of their families. Thank You, Lord that you love me and care for me; that you love them all even more than I do. Please watch over all of my children. You know their needs, their hurts and their desires. Bless them with your wisdom. It’s in Jesus’ name I pray, Amen.
