His Love and Peace Provide a Powerful Antidote
Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God (Philippians 4:6).
Let’s face it. Life can be tough. From work to home and everything in between, new worries fly at us every day from every direction. Natural disasters, atrocities of all kind around the world, and an ever increasing atmosphere of conflict here in the United States seem to be front and center in our minds.
Couple these concerns with your own personal fears and insecurities… and you have the perfect recipe for anxiety.
Anxiety can shake you loose from your spiritual foundation and disrupt your peace of mind to the core.
God knows all about this and that is why he has given us a powerful weapon to ward off anxiety…
Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.
If life has made you anxious, be encouraged to know that the God of the universe cares about you—so go to Him in prayer! Cast your cares on him and let the peace of God guard your heart and mind in Christ Jesus.
If life is troubling you today and has filled your mind with anxious thoughts, cast them on the Lord. He knows your situation and he cares for you. He has promised to give you his peace, a peace that passes understanding, a peace that will calm your mind and guard your heart. The circumstance may not change, but His love and peace will provide a powerful antidote to the cares of life.
