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. Philippians 4:6-7
Why do we worry about tomorrow and allow fear to steal strength for TODAY? God opens our eyes and prepares us to wake. He helps us learn how to focus on Him. He allows peace to come, when we trust in Jesus and offer the love of our praise.
Anxiety will disrupt God’s plan for our lives. It will fill us with doubt and diminish the desire to accomplish great things. But, Christ will take action to help us, when we faithfully trust in Him and release fear from our hearts. He will remove the source of weakness and ready us to rise when we wake, seek and PRAY.
God WILL handle our DOUBT. And through the depth of discovery, He WILL show us why we are stronger than we think. He WILL arm us with everything we need to commune with Him. He WILL set the stage for what’s to come. He WILL humble us with a heart of hope and lead us to a prayer of praise. We must focus on TODAY and allow faith to prepare us to welcome PEACE for tomorrow.
Dear God, Thank you for waking us in the presence of Your peace. Help us focus on YOU and begin this day in praise. We will love YOU with all of our hearts and find strength in the care of Jesus. We will trust in Your plans for tomorrow, so we won’t waste time worrying about TODAY. Amen
