“Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done.” Philippians 4:6 NLT
When we confronted with the difficulties of life, our first port of call is worry. Anything and everything make us worry. The text says don’t worry about anything but pray about everything. When we reflect on who God is; when we remember what He has done; when we anticipate what he’s going to do, we can come to Him.
The world says, “When life gives you lemons, make lemonade.” However the Word says in 1 Corinthians 10:13 NLT, “The temptations in your life are no different from what others experience. And God is faithful. He will not allow the temptation to be more than you can stand. When you are tempted, he will show you a way out so that you can endure.”
The Bible says that “God is not a man to lie.” Worry brings anxiety and anxiety brings its own problems. It can result in becoming physically ill. So when difficult times come our way, we can come to God in faith, pray and turn over our anxiety to Him and let the all powerful God take care of our difficulties.
