Philippians 4:6-7 [MSG] – Don’t fret or worry. Instead of worrying, pray. Let petitions and praises shape your worries into prayers, letting God know your concerns. Before you know it, a sense of God’s wholeness, everything coming together for good, will come and settle you down. It’s wonderful what happens when Christ displaces worry at the center of your life.
Hebrews 4:16 – Now that we know what we have—Jesus, this great High Priest with ready access to God—let’s not let it slip through our fingers. We don’t have a priest who is out of touch with our reality. He’s been through weakness and testing, experienced it all—all but the sin. So let’s walk right up to him and get what he is so ready to give. Take the mercy, accept the help.
I worry when I shouldn’t. I worry when I do not trust that God is in control. The situation overtakes me and I forget about God’s faithfulness. This a quite difficult thing to keep in my heart. I need to immerse myself in God’s love and presence, then I will have the right outlook when things are troubling me. I will be able to sense the presence of God no matter what the situation is at the time.
