Philippians 4:6-7 “Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, 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.”
How many times have you read these verses?
Usually we read them when we talk about God’s peace guarding our heart and our mind. I’m so thankful He does!
Paul also reminds us of the perspective we need to have when praying:
“Don’t worry about anything… but pray about everything!” That’s a good word for all of us today.
So when we do pray, don’t just bring your petition but present it “with thanksgiving.”
Thanksgiving is simply thanking God in advance by faith! It’s not just thanking God for what He has done but for what He will do.
What we need the most is not always an answer to our prayers… “it’s to know that God is working!” He is! He really is!
Praying for you and your team this weekend! May the peace of God which transcends all understanding guard your heart and mind during this holiday season.
