Philippians 4:6,7 “Don’t worry about anything, instead pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank Him for all He has done. 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.”
Is there anything that troubles you? Is there anything causing you to be anxious? The Word says to bring it before God. In other words, let Him get involved. When you entrust a situation into His hand, you can let go of the worry. It’s not always easy, especially when you’re still learning to trust Him. So you can talk to Him even about that anxiety. You can’t pretend with God, so why not lay it all bare before Him? He is your Abba, and He cares about you.
As you learn to trust Him more and more, His peace will guard your heart. The word “guard” means to protect by a military guard, either to prevent hostile invasion, or to keep the inhabitants of a besieged city from flight. That means things like fear or depression that try to attack your mind or heart will not be allowed entry, and peace cannot leave you.
As you stay aware that your life is in God’s hand, that you belong to Him, you can rest in Him. Rest in the knowledge that He is in control, and He knows what’s best. Rest in the knowledge that He loves you and is always watching out for you. Your Daddy God loves you!
