Exchanging Worry for Peace
What do you worry about most? From health to finances, worry can steal your joy! Even though we know that God cares for us and that His promises are sure we can still get caught up in a web of worry.
Worry left unattended can begin to poison our trust in God. The only way to contend with anxiety is to grow in our knowledge and understanding of who God is through God’s Word. As we begin to see the character of God, our loving Father, unfold we can relinquish our worries to Him knowing that He is willing and ready to take care of us fully. As we begin to build our trust in God, we will make decisions in obedience and trust the results to Him as He guides us. God’s Word coupled with prayer will assist you in the battle of worry.
Just as with any new habit it takes time to fully learn it, when worry begins to creep in remind yourself of who God is and read scripture that confirms the character of God and the surety of His promises. Commit to exchanging worry for the peace of God moment by moment!
DO NOT BE ANXIOUS ABOUT ANYTHING, BUT IN EVERY SITUATION, 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.
