“Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God, and the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.” – Philippians 4:6-7
I read theses verses a little while ago. Here’s what struck me…
The command given in the first few words is made possible by the following commands.
In other words, we’re told to not be anxious, and then we’re told how to make that a practice in our every day lives.
We pray, God gives the peace, and we stay obedient to the command to not be anxious.
God not only commands, He equips also.
Whatever is on your mind right now,
Don’t be anxious, be in prayer!
