An Rx for Anxiety
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
We always want to skip to the verse on how we can have peace that “transcends all understanding,” but it is extremely important t read the previous verse to understand how that is achieved. It’s easy to pray for peace, but less easy to present our requests to God in an attitude of thanksgiving. We want to say prayers and see results, not realizing that we’ve been given answers we need already in God’s Word. He has already shown us the way to overcome anxiety, but we need to put it into practice if we want to start seeing it’s effects in our lives.
Feeling anxious today? A little thankfulness will go a long way in bringing the peace that your soul is craving. Try it!
