"Do not fret or have any anxiety about anything, but in every circumstance and in everything, by prayer and petition (definite requests), with thanksgiving, continue to make your wants known to God. And God's peace [shall be yours, that tranquil state of a soul assured of its salvation through Christ, and so fearing nothing from God and being content with its earthly lot of whatever sort that is, that peace] which transcends all understanding shall garrison and mount guard over your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus. "
(Phillipians 4:6,7-Amplified Bible)
Like it or not, we've all been guilty of worry. However the Bible tells us NOT to worry. How is that possible? From personal experience, I've realized that worrying has NEVER, EVER changed 1 situation or circumstance. But praying and thanksgiving CHANGES my views towards circumstances and situations.
Worried about a bill? Think about all the times God has made a way.
Family have you down? 1 John 5:13, 14 tells us we can be CONFIDENT in God that if we ask according TO HIS WILL He hears us, and if He hears us, then the petition we asked for is ours.
Not only should we pray, but pray according to His Will. What His desire for your life? Find out and pray accordingly.
You better recognize-sometimes the one holding up progress, is YOU.
