Don’t worry about anything, but pray and ask God for everything you need, always giving thanks for what you have. And because you belong to Christ Jesus, God’s peace will stand guard over all your thoughts and feelings. His peace can do this far better than our human minds. Philippians 4:6-7 ERV
What an idea - “Don’t worry about anything, but pray and ask God for everything you need . . .”! Only, with U, it's a ‘command”! My hope & security is in U - NOT ME! The reason I worry is - I'm not worthy or capable of those things . . . Only U are!
U want me to trust U & depend on Your Peace! U want me to put my thoughts & feelings under Your Guard! Then Your Peace will be my focus, not my ability to think things through & figure them out! My mind is no match for Yours!!! Duh!!
LAB says, “True peace is not found in positive thinking, in absence of conflict, or in good feelings. It comes from knowing that God is in control. Our citizenship in Christ's Kingdom is sure, our destiny is set, and we can have victory over sin.”
OK, instead of worrying, I'm going to ask U for what I need, keep my faith & focus on & in U!
I just need to focus on belonging to U!
