Don't worry, pray and give thanks

9.25.10 . don't worry, pray and give thanks
   I'm meditating on Phil. 4:6,7 as I pray for you today.
 Don't be anxious for anything, but in all things, by prayer and supplication,
 with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God. 
  And the peace of God which passes understanding,
 will keep your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus."


The Holy Spirit is saying, through the apostle  Paul, Don't be anxious.  In other words, don't fret.  Don't get nervous.  Don't be afraidDon't get tense.  Don't stress out.  Don't act undone.  Don't have the come apartsAbout what?  About anything!!!  What do we do instead?  We pray.  We call on the NAME of the Lord.  We  bring our requests before God in Jesus' name.  And while we are praying, we are thanking God the whole time in advance, because He is faithful and we trust Him.  We take our place in prayer, before the throne of our God.  We come because the blood of Jesus made a way for us to come boldly to find grace to help in time of need.  We come in faith believing.  Through prayer we bring God's plan and purposes into our situation. We acknowledge our complete reliance upon Him, and take our place as His sons and daughters.  The powers of darkness are pushed back, the forces of the enemy paralyzed and  the supernatural peace of God begins to saturate our very being.   So don't be afraid today.   Pray and thank God. Remember so many times our Jesus said not to be anxious, not to be afraid. Remember so many times He said ask , He said pray. He is with us always, to the end of the age.  He will never leave or forsake us. He is the Lord.  All is well.
