“Being confident of this very thing, that he which hath begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ.”
When you’re thankful for the blessings all around you, you feel much happier. So slow down—and give thanks!
Romans 8 is a power packed chapter and one of my favorites!
You spoke to storms. Would You speak to ours?
You calmed the hearts of the apostles. Would You calm the chaos within us?
You told them to fear not. Say the same to us.
We are weary from our worry, battered and belittled by the gales of life.
Oh Prince of Peace, bequeath to us a spirit of calm.
Quench anxiety. Stir courage.
Let us know less fret and more faith.
In Your name, Amen.
Do not fret or have any anxiety about anything, but in every circumstance and in everything, by prayer and petition (definite requests), with thanksgiving, continue to make your wants known to God. And God’s peace [shall be yours, that tranquil state of a soul assured of its salvation through Christ, and so fearing nothing from God and being content with its earthly lot of whatever sort that is, that peace] which transcends all understanding shall garrison and mount guard over your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.
Philippians 4:6-7 AMPC
