"6Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done. 7Then you will experience God’s peace, which exceeds anything we can understand. His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus."
Philippians 4:6-7 NLT
These 2 verses say so much. The world in which we live today causes everyone to worry about everything. How will I pay the bills? My car broke down again. My kids are sick. It goes on and on. We worry...a lot! Yet, the word of God tells us to NOT worry about ANYTHING! That seems impossible, doesn't it? How can we not worry. There is never enough money to go around. Forget living paycheck to paycheck...most people today live paycheck to the middle of the week.
We must stop looking at what we don't have and be thankful for those things we DO have! I challenge you, for this next week...stop worrying. Start praying about those things that cause you to worry. Tell God your needs and then THANK HIM for everything. Even thank Him for the 'lack' in your life. Yes...thank Him for the lack. Why? Because as you thank God for the lack, I believe He will see the thankfulness and begin to fill the emptiness...in HIS time and in HIS way.
When we begin to thank God for His greatness, there is a certain peace that comes. It is a peace that the world doesn't understand. It is a peace that only God can give!!
Trust God. We say we do, but when we worry, we aren't showing that we trust Him.
Have a blessed, worry-free day!!!
