Be Anxious for Nothing
Sunday morning brought the Word of God on the subject ‘Be Anxious for Nothing.’ Paul writes to us in Phillipians that we should not be worried, or ‘anxious’ for anything. We know the God who created the universe. We live in a day that has endless reasons to worry. From health, to finances, to family, to tradgedy, to world events, and the worry of tommorow. We have reason to be worried or anxious in our own flesh. Yet Paul directs us to a higher reality that we don’t need to be worried. If we will press into God and give it all to Him we will find God’s peace and not our worries. This is not to pray in fear but to give things in prayer and trust in God. Paul ends this text with some direction of our thoughts that will keep our hearts full of peace.
Finally, brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy—meditate on these things. Philippians 4:8 (NKJV)
We again were blessed by God with the presence of the Holy Spirit!!
