Choose Peace Over Anxiety

Greetings, Loved Ones, on this marvelous Friday, another day to celebrate GOD’s love and His peace!

There are many traps in life that beckon us to fall into anxiety and worry. Many of them that have us wringing our hands and ready to pull out our hair are things over which we have absolutely no control. They drain our energy and leave us void of the attributes that GOD promises us in His Word.

Proverbs 12:25 AMP – Anxiety in a man’s heart weighs it down, But a good (encouraging) word makes it glad.

Even the situations that we can change that have us befuddled, worried and frustrated, we are always encouraged to pray and seek wisdom for the correct ways to go about resolving them. GOD always has the perfect solutions to our dilemmas!

James 1:5 AMP – If any of you lacks wisdom [to guide him through a decision or circumstance], he is to ask of [our benevolent] God, who gives to everyone generously and without rebuke or blame, and it will be given to him.

Let’s always invite GOD’s generous loving thrust, His guidance to push us past being anxious and worried to a place of peace where we belong.

Philippians 4:6-7 AMP – Do not be anxious or worried about anything, but in everything [every circumstance and situation] by prayer and petition with thanksgiving, continue to make your [specific] requests known to God. And the peace of God [that peace which reassures the heart, that peace] which transcends all understanding, [that peace which] stands guard over your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus [is yours].

Jeremiah 17:8 AMP – For he will be [nourished] like a tree planted by the waters, That spreads out its roots by the river; And will not fear the heat when it comes; But its leaves will be green and moist. And it will not be anxious and concerned in a year of drought Nor stop bearing fruit.

Prayer – GOD of Peace, in obedience to Your Word, we cast all our cares…all our anxieties, all our worries, and all our concerns, once and for all…on You. You care about us with the deepest affection and You watch over us very carefully. Thank You for Your reassuring love, protection, guidance and peace. In JESUS’ Name.  Amen.

Love Always,
