Do not fret or have any anxiety about anything, but in every circumstance and in everything, by prayer and petition (definite requests), with thanksgiving, continue to make your wants known to God. And God’s peace [shall be yours, that tranquil state of a soul assured of its salvation through Christ, and so fearing nothing from God and being content with its earthly lot of whatever sort that is, that peace] which transcends all understanding shall garrison and mount guard over your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus. For the rest, brethren, whatever is true, whatever is worthy of reverence and is honorable and seemly, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely and lovable, whatever is kind and winsome and gracious, if there is any virtue and excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think on and weigh and take account of these things [fix your minds on them].”
Philippians 4:6-8 AMPC
Anxiety is a sign we are still trying to handles things with our ability. God wants us to learn to cast our care unto Him and trust Him to fix it. That is one of reasons for prayer. This is also one of the ways in which we stand against the wiles of Satan against us.
We should not expect to prevail over satanic attacks when we do not submit to God and His Word. I meant we must learn to cast our cares unto Him and refusing to fret, knowing God will do as He has promised .
He said, Hearken, all Judah, you inhabitants of Jerusalem, and you King Jehoshaphat. The Lord says this to you: Be not afraid or dismayed at this great multitude; for the battle is not yours, but God’s.”
2 Chronicles 20:15 AMPC
The battle is not ours, but God’s. So the quicker we learn to cast our problems on the Lord and leave it there the quicker we will experience the victory over the works of satan.
Today there is no time to waste or need for hesitation. Let’s us all turn over our issues God, knowing He is fighting for us and turning things around for our good in Jesus name.
Let’s pray together:
Heavenly Father I thank You for Your Word. I cast my care unto You knowing the battle is not mine but Yours in Jesus name. Amen.
