Scripture of the Week by JoBeth Kested

Scripture for the week of March 29, 2015

JoBeth38Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done. Then you will experience God’s peace, which exceeds anything we can understand. His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:6-7 (NLT)

Have you ever wondered how to find peace in the midst of difficult and overwhelming situations? Peace is something money cannot buy, but I am sure there are times we would gladly pay for it if we could. Though not always easy, these two verses show us in a few simple steps God’s pathway to finding His peace. 1) Don’t waste your time worrying. 2) Talk to God about everything. 3) He wants us to bring Him all our needs. 3) Be sure to thank Him for all He does for you. Then we are promised God’s miraculous peace that passes all our understanding; that protects our hearts and minds beyond anything we can imagine as we live in the life that is ours in Jesus. Prayer is just simply talking to God and is the entry way to walking in His path of peace for you today and always.
