Look up past WORDS...
Philippians 4: 6-8
Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be
made known unto God.
And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.
Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.
Do you know what this means? This section deals with our worries, anxieties, and thoughts. We do not have to worry, which is what "being careful" is translated as. In fact, it is for nothing!
So, what instead? In everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God the Father. Last week, we talked about the importance of prayer. Subsequently, we follow up by learning that we should pray with definite requests.
God knows what is going on in your life, but he wants us to come to him, and ask for specific things! Praying is the way that we talk to our Father, but he wants us to come to him with our problems, for he is the one that provides. Accordingly, thank him for those things that you have asked him for, and for hearing you. Then his peace will keep your hearts and minds, instead of anxiety.
Finally, control your thoughts, and think on those things which are true, honest, just, pure, lovely, and of a good report. Easier said than done? Don't give up.
So, continue praying for your life, your loved ones, and this country, and let God's peace keep you.
And if you don't how to start praying for your life, begin here!
