No matter your treasures.
No matter your need.
No matter what is prepared for you today, these words from Philippians are worth remembering.
Philippians 4:6 NKJV — Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God;
The Lord knows all and He wants us to trust Him, to find our treasure in Him.
Because a bank account or status doesn’t bring security or peace.
Neither do relationships, property, or the nation where one resides.
The only way to be anxious for nothing is to look at Jesus, the Savior.
It’s easy to get tied up in the every day or the list of “to do”, but with practice and persistence it can become a way of life.
Which is where we want to be.
Philippians 4:7 NKJV — and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.
Definitely a wonderful way to live, in the peace of God.
May it be your residence.
Dear Lord Jesus,
Thank You for Your Word. Thank You for Your faithfulness. Lord, You know what is best. You have all these things in Your hands. Please help us to surrender daily to Your will. Please let us not be stubborn or stiff-necked, but instead walk with love and trust. Lord, please help our hearts to be completely Yours. Lord, use our lives to reach others. Let our light shine brightly into the darkness, that people might see You. Lord, please heal the sick and hurting. Please restore the lost and the prodigal. Lord, please guide and direct our leaders and let the hearts of the nations return to You. Thank You, Jesus. You are incredible. I praise Your holy name! love is unfathomable! Amen.
