Please read Philippians 4:1-13 again.
Prayer not only changes things, but it also changes people, and the indwelling Holy Spirit brings calmness to your soul.
LIVE ONE DAY AT A TIME – DAY BY DAY
Matthew 6:34, “Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof.”
Our hands are full of today’s problems, why take on tomorrow’s? Much of what we worry about never happens anyway, and when we trust in God, pray and live day by day we will feel His undergirding and strengthening, “My grace is sufficient for thee.”
Why worry for our tomorrows when God so graciously supplies our needs today?
REMEMBER THAT GOD IS ALWAYS FAITHFUL
Jeremiah said in Lamentations 3:22-23, “It is of the LORD’s mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not. They are new every morning: great is thy faithfulness.”
- Danson Smith said it this way:
“Unto this day God has guarded and guided; Unto this day He has graciously planned: Unto this day He has sweetly provided. Yes, has provided with bountiful hand. Unto this day God has well undertaken; Unto this day He has kept by His grace; Why then should spirit or mind be now shaken? Though future pathways we may not now trace?”
BE AWARE OF HIS PRESENCE IN YOUR DAILY LIFE
Hebrews 13:5-6, “Let your conversation be without covetousness; and be content with such things as ye have: for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee. So that we may boldly say, The Lord is my helper, and I will not fear what man shall do unto me.”
