TODAY'S WORD 4U 2DAY
PEACE RULESColossians 3:15
‘Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts…’ Colossians 3:15 NIV
We would be a whole lot more chilled out if we worried less and prayed more! In fact, let’s go one better – we would be completely transformed if we didn’t worry at all and prayed about everything! Philippians 4:6-7 (TLB) says, ‘Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything; tell God your needs and don’t forget to thank Him for His answers. If you do this you will experience God’s peace, which is far more wonderful than the human mind can understand…His peace will keep your thoughts and your hearts quiet and at rest…’
Prayer is an exchange service – you give over your worries or problems to Jesus! You get to let go! ‘Let Him have all your worries and cares, for He is always thinking about you and watching everything that concerns you. Be careful—watch out for attacks from satan…Stand firm when he attacks…’ (1 Peter 5:7–9 TLB) Don’t listen to the enemy’s worry-whispers; not even for a second! The moment you find yourself worrying, have a word with yourself and ask, ‘What’s the enemy trying to do here? If I give in to these thoughts and emotions what’s going to happen?’ Answer? Not a lot a good!
Prayer journal. When you feel worry coming in write it down in a shape of a prayer and leave it with Him.
