The Peace of God
Philippians 4: 6-7
6. Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done. 7. Then you will experience God’s peace, which exceeds anything we can understand. His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus.
I know that worrying about nothing seems impossible and it’s easier said than done with inflation, death, hardships, divorce, and a multitude of other problems. There are times when we find ourselves feeling lost, helpless and alone.
We all have problems rather it’s at home, job, relationships, school, and church, whichever problem or problems that you currently have or had rather big or small Paul clearly says in the Bible DON'T WORRY!
We have to turn our worries into prayer, pray about everything and worry about nothing
Praying more and worrying less is exactly what I have to do because the struggle can sometimes be such a reality to me, and through it all I have to pray, trust and believe the word of God, not the world and definitely not people and their opinions or advice that you did not ask for.
You should always take time to stop and PRAY, seeking GOD should always be your first priority.
As believers we should not be anxious for nothing or anything. It is perfectly fine to be concerned, but not worried, have your moment or two of concern and then start praying and pray some more believing and trusting GOD. Worry and fear should not be your lifestyle.
Even though you are a Christian believer does not mean that you have a guarantee on life not to have trials & tribulations and a worry free life. That is not true, Life can be challenging and there are season in our life when we don’t understand how and why and we find ourselves in a dark place rather quickly if we don’t seek GOD and PRAY.
When we do have a problem we should handle the problem or situation like a Christian believer, by praying and seeking God trusting in the peace of GOD. The peace of God will surround you, your circumstances, situation, and your family. We have to trust God because he gives us a peaceful perspective.
GOD's peace will guard your heart from anxieties, adversity and stressors of the world
GOD’s peace is nothing like world peace. It is totally different and given freely if we are willing to pray, trust and believe in God.
