Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. 7 And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. - Philippians 4:6-7

We all worry. But for some, worry defines and dominates every waking thought. Imagine being able to live with a peaceful, quiet mind. In Jesus, it is possible. Just as Daniel slept peacefully in the lion’s den, we can be free from constant worry even in a world filled with opportunities for anxiety. Daniel’s secret is available to us. Daniel regularly cast all his anxieties on the Lord through prayer and petition. He spent time thanking God for his blessings and making his needs and requests known to God.

God promises to protect our hearts and minds from worry. Having all that free space to peacefully think about other things would truly be hard to imagine. You might say that it would transcend all understanding.

Reflect: 

Why don’t we pray more?

What could you do with the extra time you spend in worry?

What are you worried about right now? Why not take a minute now to talk to your Father?
