When you are anxious, it means you aren’t trusting God to take care of you. But He will prove His faithfulness if you run to Him. Negative emotions reveal doubt. If we thoroughly trust God, what do we have to be anxious about? Yet we all are susceptible to experiencing these kinds of emotions at some time in our life. Don’t feel bad about having them, but don’t live with them either. Refuse to allow the ugliness of negative emotions to mar the beauty of the life God has for you.
When we have constant unrest because we are never at peace, it not only makes us miserable, it makes everyone around us miserable too. “There remains therefore a rest for the people of God” (Hebrew 4:9). It’s possible to find contentment, rest, peace, and joy in any situation. Tell God you are making that your goal and you need Him to help you.
Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.
Thank You, Lord, that in my distress I can call on You. And when I cry out to You, Lord, You hear my voice and answer. May the joy of knowing You fill my heart with happiness and peace.
In Jesus name I pray
Do not seek what you should eat or what you should drink, nor have an anxious mind. For all these things the nations of the world seek after, and your Father knows that you need these things. But seek the kingdom of God, and all these things shall be added to you.
