Peace through Prayer

The Lord blesses His people with peace.Psalm 29:11

God’s peace ….. will keep your heart and minds in Christ JesusPhilippians 4:7

The worrisome heart pays a high price for doing so. 

Worry comes from the Greek word that means ‘to divide the mind.’ Anxiety splits us right down the middle, creating a double-minded thinker.  Rather than take away tomorrow’s trouble, worry voids today’s strength.  Perception is divided, distorting your vision.  Strength is divided, wasting your energy.

Who can afford to lose power?

But how can we stop doing so?  Paul offers a two-pronged answer: God’s part and our part.  Our part includes prayer and gratitude.  “Do not worry about anything, but pray and ask God for everything you need, always giving thanksPhilippians 4:6.

God’s part? “And God’s peace, which is so great we cannot understand it, will keep your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.” Philippians 4:7
