Day Four: Don’t be worried about a thing

Philippians 4:4-7 (NIV)

Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice!  Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near. Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, 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.

Philippians 4:4-7 (TPT)

Be cheerful with joyous celebration in every season of life. Let joy overflow, for you are united with the Anointed One! Let gentleness be seen in every relationship, for our Lord is ever near. Don’t be pulled in different directions or worried about a thing. Be saturated in prayer throughout each day, offering your faith-filled requests before God with overflowing gratitude. Tell him every detail of your life, then God’s wonderful peace that transcends human understanding, will make the answers known to you through Jesus Christ.

Philippians 4 echoes with God’s fulfilled promises of comfort-salvation: The Lord is present! He creates in us a faith-filled, joyous, gentle, and unworried life where there once was not. Our response to the anxiety and fears of human beings that surround us is to pray to the Lord, who is with us and at work to bring about things that we cannot.

Let’s pray: Thank you, Lord, for your nearness and comfort, your salvation! I bring my needs and requests to you, and ask that you care for every detail of my life. Guard me and lead me in your peace.

As we place our trust in the Lord, let’s sing, “Christ is Enough.
