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)
There are many situations that bring anxiety into our lives, but Paul the Apostle, exhorts the believers in Philippi and also us, by saying......."in everything by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made to God." Every time we sit in the presence of the Lord, we can think about all the things (situations, problems, difficulties) that bring anxiety in to our hearts, and we can present all these in the presence of God, with prayer, petition and thanksgiving. And what happens when we do that?...The Apostle continues by writing........And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. (Philippians 4:7)
In the Old Testament of the Bible, we read of a wonderful promise God gave his children.... Though the mountains be shaken and the hills be removed, yet my unfailing love for you will not be shaken nor my covenant of peace be removed," says the Lord, who has compassion on you. (Isaiah 54:10)
God has established a covenant of peace with you if you have accepted the gift of salvation that he has provided through his son Jesus Christ. His love for you is unfailing and his covenant of peace will never be removed from you because he is an unchanging God.
The Psalmist sang, "When anxiety was great within me, your consolation brought joy to my soul. (Psalm 94:19)"
If you are distressed or anxious about any matter this day, remember that God's unfailing love and his covenant of peace will sustain you and bring consolation to your soul.
So......Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you. (1 Peter 5:7)
