“Do not be anxious about anything.” Philippians 4:6

The Word says, “An anxious heart weighs a man down.”, (Proverbs 12:25a)  This so true for mankind.  It is one of the main tools of the enemy.  If we allow it, anxiety can take away the joy of all of the good things the Lord puts into our lives.  We can be doing well in our health, our home life, our jobs, our relationships, and every area of our lives, but the enemy will try to put a negative thought into our minds of “what if”.  What if I lose my job?  What if I get sick.?  What if I can’t pay my bills?  What if?  What if?  This kind of thinking absolutely weighs us down.  It allows us to carry anxiety that soaks up the sweetness the Lord wants us to walk in. This kind of thinking is an open invitation for things we do not want to happen – to happen.  We must shut that door using the beautiful powerful steps the Holy Spirit gives us through Paul.

Here is how we put our mind on the good things we want to come into our lives as we go forth, be at peace in our hearts, and enjoy the good things in our lives today:   “Rejoice in the Lord always.  I will say it again: Rejoice!!  Let your gentleness be evident to all.  The Lord is near.  Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.  And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.”  Philippians 4:4-7
Be blessed by the Word of the Lord, God’s Beloveds.  Be healed of all anxiety through the fullness of His love and peace as we pray and trust.  Let there be no room for anxiety because your spirit, soul, and body is filled with His presence.  Be a blessing to others in your life who might be suffering from anxiety by doing what the second verse in Proverbs 12:25 says:  “An anxious heart weighs a man down, but a kind word cheers him up.”  Amen.
Love to you all, my Brothers and Sisters in Christ Jesus.
