Do Not Worry! Logan Hagoort – Philippians 4:4-9
God’s Word is a light and food that builds up our hearts. Turn to the living God and rejoice! Do not be anxious, but pray and let the peace of God guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus. Give up control of your life to God. Pray. Cry out to Him. Bring your needs to Him honestly, in heartfelt weakness, in total dependence on the Lord. As you pray, your worry recedes and the peace of Christ grows and you know He is sorting it all out. When God is on the case, what is there to worry about? But how do we deal with worry? It inevitably comes when trouble shakes us up. Our effort is not the answer. God’s peace is the answer. We turn from our worry and we turn to God, who is capable of taking care of all our needs and we let the peace of Christ take up an armed defense around our hearts and minds to keep them centered on Christ Jesus our Lord and off of worry.
