Be Anxious for Nothing

I can do all things through Him who strengthens me. – Philippians 4:13

Paul wrote these words while confined to a Roman prison. His circumstances may not have been pleasant, yet he penned these words: “Rejoice in the Lord always . . . The Lord is near. Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all comprehension, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus” (Philippians 4:4-7).

The circumstances of your life may appear unbearable, but there is hope because Christ is aware of what you’re facing. He knows all about the bill due at the end of the month and your lack of money to pay it. He’s already aware of the doctor’s report that will mean you must face even more treatment. Wherever your prison happens to be, God is in it with you.

Someone reading these words may be thinking, “But you don’t understand.” Anytime you use the word but, you let go of your faith and give in to fear. Click To Tweet Stop saying but and begin saying, “I know my Savior lives, and He is faithful.”

God has kept every one of His promises. Others may fail you, but He never will.
