"6 Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about
everything; tell God your needs, and don’t forget to thank
him for his answers. 7 If you do this, you will experience
God’s peace, which is far more wonderful than the human
mind can understand. His peace will keep your thoughts and
your hearts quiet and at rest as you trust in Christ Jesus."
Philippians 4:6-7 TLB
Today's thought is about worry. We all do it. We might think we don't, but we do. We worry about everything...the bills, the weather, our job, our home, our car and on and on. Why do we worry when it is clear in the Word of God that we are not supposed to?
I'm just a guilty as the next person. I know I am not supposed to worry. I am supposed to 'give it to God.' I am supposed to let go and let Him deal with it. And yet...here I sit, worrying. Verse 7 above, tells us if we will NOT worry and pray about everything, yes, everything, then we will experience peace. And not just any peace...the peace of God. God's peace is so much more amazing than anything we can understand.
I challenge you this morning. I challenge myself...don't worry...not about anything. Let God handle all the things that make us crazy. Let Him give us a great big dose of His peace! Try it...just for one day. You won't be sorry...in fact, I'll bet you find that you feel wonderfully at peace, even though the things you worry about are still there!
