21 Days of Dedication

Day #8

Scripture:
Philippians 4:6 Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God. 7 And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.

If you have read any of the New Testament in your life you have heard of Paul. He wrote many of the letters we enjoy in the second part of the Bible. His insight and ability to share concepts and principles was by far the most help in writing. Notice his words to the church… “be careful for nothing”… Another way of saying, Do not worry. Do not be afraid. Do not over think the unknown.

He goes on to admonish the church to… Pray and with meaning give thanks to God for all things. When we ask in prayer to the God of all heaven and earth… ask with already a thankful Spirit because we know that He hears us when we pray and He delights in blessing His children. With a thankful heart there will come peace and assurance that God is listening and wants to answer.

So as you pray today… as you fill in the lines in your journal… Give thanks in all things and allow yourself to enjoy the process. Ask in His name with a grateful heart and do not worry about it… His peace will enter the picture. That is something worth writing about.
