Word 4 Today May 20, 2011


Do not fret or have any anxiety about anything, but in every circumstance and in everything, by prayer and petition (definite request), with thanksgiving, continue to make your wants known to God.  Philippians 4:6 (Amplified Bible)

I’m a firm believer that it is God’s will that we enjoy the life He has created for us.  Life is a gift, yet there are so many people who choose to live outside of God’s will, by being anxious and worried.  Notice the verse does not say, “Worry about everything” or “think the worst in every situation.”  God did not give you the assignment of worrying, He did however give you the assignment of praying.  He knows that when we focus on our problems, the bigger our problems get, but when we focus through prayer on God, the bigger He gets.  God is bigger than all our problems.


Heavenly Father no matter what I face today, always remind me to lean on Your Word.  You say not to worry; I know if I worry I cannot be effective in the lives of my family and friends.  You say, let Me know what you need, You have already promised to provide each and every one of them.  You say pray and petition because it works, it’s the system you have put into effect to get results.  Lord may we trust You in every decision we make.  Amen!


It’s not our job to worry; it’s our job to pray!
