Verse: Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. Philippians 4:6 NASB
Devotional: This can be a difficult one. Anxiety cripples so many of us. God tells us to not be anxious for anything. To do so would be a direct action against God. But so many of us still struggle with this. It seems to be easier said than done.
How do we deal with anxiety? Pray and give thanks. The Bible is clear that we should take all of our anxious thoughts to God. Prayer is simply talking with God. It is handing over our concerns and worries to Him and trusting that He will take care of us.
When we turn the focus away from our anxiety and towards Jesus, the things of this life that we worry about become lost in His perfect protection.
Challenge: Take some time to thank God for the blessings in your life. Write them down and revisit them often. Praise Him for answered prayers and reflect on His faithfulness. Thank Him for what He did for you on the cross through His Son, Jesus.
