It is not unusual for anxiety to grip our minds when we dwell on the uncertainties and challenges we face daily. Worries about the future, concerns about our business, and the weight of daily responsibilities can sometimes flood our minds and distract us from God’s faithfulness, but our opening text today shows us how to handle all anxieties.
Our opening text prescribes prayer and supplication with thanksgiving as God’s strategy for us to overcome anxiety when it comes. In place of worry and anxiety, we are to redirect our energy into prayer. So instead of complaining and worrying, we are to make our requests known to God, who is able to do exceeding, abundantly above what we can ask or think!
God is not indifferent about your plight. He desires to walk with you, to shoulder your burdens, and to bring you His peace that surpasses all understanding. Your prayer in times of anxiety is the proof of your trust in Him, and a call unto Him to fulfil His promise.
Also, by expressing gratitude for His faithfulness, provision, and grace, you can shift your focus from your anxieties to His faithfulness. And while your worries may not instantly disappear, as you cultivate a habit of prayer, you will experience the transforming power of God’s peace as your faith begins to rise.
Therefore, as you go about your busines today, remember to cast all your cares upon the Lord by supplication and with thanksgiving all day long. Do not allow yourself be weighed down by situations and circumstances that may seem beyond you. Remember that they are not beyond the LORD, and He is faithful to keep His promise when you call unto Him. So, fear not!
