Finding The Peace Of God For Your Situation

by | Jan 4, 2016

Philippians 4:6-7
Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.

Are you worried and anxious about something today? Is there something consuming you, just tearing your insides apart, keeping you awake and it is overwhelming you to the point where you can’t seem to think about anything else? Stop it! According to these verses that is a waste of your time when you can take it to God! The creator of all, wants you to bring these things to Him and lay them at His feet!

When you are consumed with worry, you are unable to be as focused on all that you are called to be and do! God doesn’t want you to worry or be anxious, He wants you to trust Him and give it all to Him! Worry is typically a misuse of your imagination! We worry about things that haven’t even happened yet. If it hasn’t happened yet then why not take it to The One who can do something about it before it does and let Him take care of it!

We all have things in life that we are deeply concerned about and we have decisions to make on a regular basis that can be overwhelming, but if we get in the habit of taking them all to God and leaving them there then “the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard our hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.” Don’t carry those burdens alone, you were never meant to do that. God wants to be there for you! He wants you to trust Him! He will see you through, He will take care of it and will give you His peace if you will just ask Him to and you give it all to Him! The best is yet to come!
