Think Good Thoughts

Philippians 4:6 NIV “Do not be anxious about anything”

 Be honest! How much time do you spend worrying about things that usually never happen? And has anything improved as a result of your worrying about it? Absolutely not! Apostle Paul writes: “Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God” (Philippians 4:6 NIV). He then encourages us by saying that when we do this, the peace of God will fill our hearts and minds (Philippians 4:7). The instant you begin to worry or feel anxious about something, take your concern to God in prayer. Release the weight of it, and totally trust Him to take care of it. Prayer is powerful against worry. When you are feeling pressure, it is always best to pray about it instead of fretting and talking about it. Instead of trying to get rid of your negative thoughts, which only keeps you focused on them, fill your mind with positive thoughts (Philippians 4:8). Also, as soon as you begin to worry, say, “No, I’m not going to worry about this because I have entrusted it to the Lord; He will take care of it.” His Word says, “The Lord has been mindful of us; He will bless us. (Psalm 115:12).”
