Anxiety vs. Prayer, Philippians 4:1-9

Probably the greatest battle we fight is our thought life. So often we wrestle with our thoughts and need to reel them in to line up with our faith.

Our Scripture today covers 3 vital areas in our lives: do not be anxious, pray, and think right thoughts.

Don't be anxious! That is often easier said than done in today's world. If you listen to the local and national news it is filled with anxiety ridden messages. The key for each of us as believers is to do the very thing the Scripture speaks of: BUT IN EVERYTHING! All your worries, all your concerns, all your thoughts are to be taken to the the Lord is prayer and in that you are to also have a heart of thanksgiving! Why, because we are presenting our requests to the God who loves us and cares about us. When we bring everything to God in prayer there is a release in our hearts and the peace of God overrides your anxiety!


God's peace sets a guard over your mind and heart. This inner peace is mediated by the Holy Spirit. It confirms for us the presence of Christ. Isaiah 26:3-4 says, "You will keep in perfect peace him whose mind is steadfast, because he trusts in You. Trust in the Lord forever, for the Lord, the Lord, is the Rock eternal."
