Verse Of The Day : Do not be anxious about anything. Instead, in every situation, through prayer and petition with thanksgiving, tell your requests to God. And the peace of God that surpasses all understanding will guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:6-7
Thought of The Day : Peace of mind can’t be bought in the market, but obtained by prayer of faith and thanksgiving.
LISTEN : Can we enjoy peace of mind in times of trouble? Can you experience God’s touch in the storm of your life? Yes you can! Beloved, anxiety produces fear and emotional instability; but prayer of faith and thanksgiving brings peace of mind and answers to prayers. My dear, stop being anxious! To be anxious is to feel or show worry, nervousness, or unease about something with an uncertain outcome. Rather than being anxious, pray and thank God in everything. Genuine prayer with thanksgiving expresses faith in God, and will attract peace into the mind and heart of the troubled. Friend, learn to talk to God about your problems. Talking to God about your problems is key to experiencing peace of mind. People feel restless and troubled when faced with trials or difficult situations because, they chose to worry about them, instead of talking to God in prayer and giving thanks (Matthew 7:7-8). My dear, pray! Learning to pray is learning to trust God in every situation. If you can pray in faith you can’t continue to live with a troubled heart. Yes, it’s not possible to pray in faith in times of troubles and not feel the peace of God in your heart. When you pray in faith, you have stopped thinking about what might happen as a result of your troubles, and starts believing what God says He’ll do in His words . The Bible says,
“If you can believe, all things are possible to him that believe.”
Beloved, never be anxious about anything, rather pray about everything (Philippians 4:6).When you do that with thanksgiving, the peace of God will fill your heart and mind; and your feelings will be influenced by God and your anxiety and worries will vanish. Therefore, no matter the circumstance, pray always and thank God and you’ll enjoy peace of mind. Remember, prayer of faith and genuine thanksgiving in times of trouble will give you peace of mind. Be wise!
