“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 understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.” Philippians 4:6-7
God is telling us not to freak out about anything. Anything! Can you think of anything that does not fit into this category? Instead of worrying—pray—about everything!
What God is promising in these verses is this: If, when you are confronted with difficult things, you will pray rather than worry, God will give you peace. The stress will lift. The pressure will be broken.
Perhaps you are so filled with anxiety and stress that you are working on an ulcer right now. You don’t sleep like you should. Your anxieties have robbed you of the quality of life God wants you to have. God wants you free from your burdens. Take them to Him today, and every day, and see how those burdens are lifted.
