Series: On Edge | Week 2: Protected by Peace
Philippians 4:7Then you will experience God’s peace, which exceeds anything we can understand. His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus. As you bring each of your anxieties to God, ask him to show you why you are feeling the way you are, and remind yourself of his promises in the face of frustrating circumstances. Over time, he will teach you how to respond to your particular circumstances. Remember, he is like a good doctor who provides you with accurate instructions for how to address your particular needs. He knows what the root cause of your anxiety is – whether biological, belief in a lie, physical exhaustion, or a need for repentance. He will not misdiagnose you or apply the wrong solution to your circumstances. This is not an easy process – it requires patience and practice - but it is the way to experience his peace that passes understanding. Today, ask God to give you the patience to apply this process to each anxiety you experience, as well as to trust that he cares for you personally.
