Instead, Pray

Today’s Encouragement is Philippians 4:6 NLT Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need and thank him for all he has done.

Instead, Pray –

The Bible is God’s Wisdom for how to live wisely, the way He intends for us.

Here, God’s word speaks to us about worry, and how to choose a better way. This is God’s wisdom for us my friends, it’s not some man’s teaching, but the Wisdom of God. 

Just don’t worry… Stop it! Refuse worry and anxiety and fretting!  Choose as a matter of your own will to turn away from worry…. And instead of worry…

Pray! 

This is choosing to turn from focusing on what we can do, wish we could do, think we ought to do, wish someone else would do… turning from the world of man… and turning to the world of God… recognizing we are so often powerless to ‘fix’ the broken things of this life… but God is fully able, fully powerful, to address these things… and to do so in the wisest, most beneficial manner possible… in God’s wisdom, timing and power. 

Worry, fretting and anxiety all focus on ME… Prayer is focused on God, what He can and will and might do… in His best for His beloved children!

Father God, please help us to choose prayer, trusting You, over worry and trusting ourselves or others.  You are in control.

Do Not Worry
