Scripture Reading — Philippians 4:6-9
“Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God. And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.” (Philippians 4:6,7)
My beloved, it is in your hearts and minds where the source of all disturbance lies. You cannot keep peace in your being unless you have My help. But My help is available.
I do not want you to be worried about anything. Have I not said, “Let not your heart be troubled”? I want you to have perfect peace in all your activity. Never be overly troubled and disturbed about what is happening all around you to the world, to others, and even to yourself. Remember I am in control.
Worry will age you. It will sicken you. It will frustrate you and make you powerless. It will confuse you so that you will not make the right decision under pressure. Worry is Satan’s key which he uses to make many of My children powerless and weak in exploits. Worry will shackle your arms to your side, your feet to the stocks, so that you will not be able to do exploits for Me. Let your requests always be announced to Me, not only by prayer and supplication, but with thanksgiving, for in thanksgiving lies great power to release you from chains of doubt and worry. As you praise, you have My peace.
