The news reports can be overwhelming. Pig flu, war, violence, natural disasters. Are these just cycles or is there more to it? Matthew 24 indicates that when war, earthquakes,disease, famine are happening at the same time with increased intensity that we need to be on watch.
Paul wrote, in the New Testatment, that we should," be anxious for nothing but in everything, with prayer and thanksgiving make our request known to God. And the peace of God which transends all understanding will keep our hearts and mind in Christ Jesus".
Anxious for nothing? That means power praying! Putting those anxities before God. Naming them and then believing that He is who He says He is and can do what He says He can do! Praying scripture is powerful!
Try it: God, your word says I should be anxious for nothing. That means I should not be anxious about_________________(name it). I believe I can do all things through Christ who stengthens me. I need to see your fingerprints in my life and to experience your resurection power. You will supply all my need according to your riches in glory, You are Alpha and Omega. The beginning and the end. I put my hope and my trust in you Lord! "Amen".
