Turn Your Worries Into Prayer
Scripture Text : “Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God”. Philippians 4:6
In spite of all the persecutions, Paul wrote to the Philippians: Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.
Everyone has a struggle but the circumstances differ. We face many problems and often Satan the deceiver makes us believe we are solely responsible for all failures in our life and fogs our mind with guilt and can push you through stress and depression.
The scripture says,
“Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life?” Matthew 6:27
“Watch and pray so that you will not fall into temptation. The spirit is willing, but the flesh is weak”. Matthew 26;41
Instead of worrying we are to pray and plead to God. Our God is a good father. He gives good gifts and He loves us unconditionally.
Don’t worry about the closed door. When our knees hit the floor God will open the doors and provide the greatest opportunities. God is in control of everything and He is preparing for the better and draws us to Himself.
The psalmists says, “Cast your cares on the Lord and He will sustain you; He will never let the righteous be shaken. Psalms 55 :22
Jesus said, Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns. Yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they?
When you face life changing decisions, don’t be anxious, pray. When you face evil, don’t be anxious, pray. When you are sick and need a touch from God, don’t be anxious, pray.
Peter wrote, “Humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God, that He may exalt you in due time, casting all your care upon Him, for He cares for you” 1 Peter 5:6–7
When water is poured over burning wood the fire goes off and all that is left are the ashes. Just like the water quenches and douses out the fire, prayer eliminates every worry, fear and anxiety. So turn your worries into prayers this morning.
Tell the Lord, I am too weak. I simply can’t handle this all alone
No matter what hurtful situation, rejection, disappointments you are going through God can give you peace in the middle of all these.
Have a blessed and fruitful day!
God bless you.
