Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done. Then 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
How many of us worry?
If we’ll admit it, I think most of us worry about some things some of the time. Some of us worry about many things, most of the time.
Paul has a remedy for us. Instead of worrying, we should pray about everything. Yes, God already knows about what concerns us, but we are to communicate our needs to him and then thank Him for his faithfulness and goodness.
Paul reminds us that when our focus is on God, we can experience peace. It reminds me of an old Andrae Crouch song based on the following verse –
You will keep in perfect peaceIsaiah 26:3
all who trust in you,
all whose thoughts are fixed on you!
So, let’s avoid worry and experience God’s peace that will guard our hearts and our minds,
