Overcoming Anxiety in an Anxious World

Read Philippians 4:4-9

As one person stated, the situation today is like looking at a horrific car wreck, you want to look away but remain riveted upon the scene. We watch the news, check the internet and read the reports incessantly, hoping for positive news and yet the news seems more grim each day. When events like this unfold, it is natural feel apprehension and some level of anxiety. No matter how strong our faith, we are still human with emotions. Paul understood this. Scriptures never denies the reality of fear, rather it calls upon us to redirect our fear. Paul writes in Philippians 4:6-7, “Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made know to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all comprehension, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.” Prayer can not only change the circumstances, but, even more importantly, it changes our perspective. When you find yourself becoming anxious because of the uncertainty of our day, stop and pray for God’s peace and comfort.
