“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.”
- Anxiety and worry are the opposite of faith and peace. If you have accepted Christ as your Savior and Lord, then anxiety and worry should not be a part of your life. God does not promise to give us “our way” in every situation. He promises to give us peace when we turn every situation over to Him. The peace in your life in directly proportional to your faith in God. When we change our worry to prayer and we pray in faith, we get peace.
Psalm 55:22 “Cast your burden on the Lord, and he will sustain you; he will never permit the righteous to be moved.”
1 Peter 5:6-7 “Humble yourselves, therefore, under the mighty hand of God so that at the proper time he may exalt you, casting all your anxieties on him, because he cares for you.”
Proverbs 3:5-6 “Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths.”
Isaiah 26:3 “You keep him in perfect peace whose mind is stayed on you, because he trusts in you.”
Dear Lord, please forgive me when I have been nervous or afraid of things that might or might not happen. May I humbly and earnestly seek your will and your guidance in all matters, and may I rest in the peace that you offer. I love you and I trust you Lord. Thank you for loving me and saving me through the blood of your Son, Jesus Christ. Amen.
