I should have known the answer to any question is in the word of God. I know better. To go along with my recent post “Conquering Anxiety” I have found the answer! Right in front of my face in scripture. As soon as I read it I felt a click. Does that ever happen with you? Philippians 4 has the best answer to conquering anxiety.
“Don’t fret or worry. Instead of worrying, pray. Let petitions and praises shape your worries into prayers, letting God know your concerns. Before you know it, a sense of God’s wholeness, everything coming together for good, will come and settle you down. It’s wonderful what happens when Christ displaces worry at the center of your life. Summing it all up, friends, I’d say you’ll do best by filling your minds and meditating on things true, noble, reputable, authentic, compelling, gracious—the best, not the worst; the beautiful, not the ugly; things to praise, not things to curse.” Philippians 4:6-9
Isn’t that crazy? It’s right there! Simple, straight to the point, and it tells where to put our focus towards. We have the answer now it’s up to us to implement the remedies.
