Most of us have, at some point in our lives, worried or we have been anxious about something. It may be our finances or our health or our job or maybe our children. But anxiety is something that is common. Now, some may be more anxious than others still, we deal with anxiety. How do you handle anxiety?
In Phillippians 4:6-7, the apostle Paul gave us a remedy for anxiety. Paul wrote, “In everything, in prayer and supplication, let your requests be made known unto God and the peoce of God which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hears and minds in Christ Jesus.” That verse has been described a as prescription for prayer.
In the verse, Paul is telling us that we should pray and not worry. Paul says that instead of worrying, we should lift our concerns to God. And, Paul says that when we pray, “the. Peace of God which surpasses all comprehension, will guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.”
I’ve known people who shared a prayer concern and then, I would speak them maybe days or weeks later. I would ask them about their concern? They would respond, “I have peace beyond comprehension.” They were talking about Philippians 4.
So, whatever you are concerned about, we can give it to the Lord and the peace of God which is beyond our comprehension, will guard our hearts and mind in Christ. Today, instead of worrying (at times, easier said than done), give your requests to to the Lord and He will give us peace.
