Below is a devotional I wanted to share with you all. Don’t let your anxious thoughts win!
“Week 4: A Happy Heart: God’s Promise Through Paul
God’s Promise: “God will meet all your needs.” (Philippians 4:19 NIV)
My Promise: I will trust God to meet my needs.
We are running out of everything, it seems, and so we worry. But worry doesn’t work. Fret won’t fill a bird’s belly with food or a flower’s petal with color. Birds and flowers seem to get along just fine, and they don’t take anti-acids. What’s more, you can dedicate a decade of anxious thoughts to the brevity of life and not extend it by one minute. Worry accomplishes nothing. Jesus doesn’t condemn legitimate concern for responsibility, but rather the continuous mindset that dismisses God’s presence. Destructive anxiety subtracts God from the future, faces uncertainties with no faith, and tallies up the challenges of the day without entering God into the equation. Worry is the dark room where negatives become glossy prints. So become a worry slapper. Treat frets like mosquitoes. Be decisive with anxiety. The moment a concern surfaces, deal with it. Don’t dwell on it. Head worries off before they get the best of you.
Unshakable Hope Declaration
We are building our lives on the promises of God. Because his Word is unbreakable, our hope is unshakable. We do not stand on the problems of life or the pain in life. We stand on the great and precious promises of God.”
“And my God will meet all your needs according to the riches of his glory in Christ Jesus.” ~ Philippians 4:19
