Don’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.
Uncertainty is one of the greatest teachers for trusting God. Our response to uncertainty will either drive us away from God, or draw us in even closer. The moment we begin to starve our doubt and feed our faith, we start to focus on what is right about God, rather than what is wrong with our situation. So in seasons of uncertainty, we must declare our trust in God, pray with boldness and confidence, and thank Him for His faithfulness and provision.
Think about a time of uncertainty, worry, or stress in your life. How did prayer and worship bring you—and maybe others—peace?
Matthew 6:34 (in the Message translation) says that God will help us deal with whatever hard things come up when the time comes—we just need to trust Him. How can simply saying the phrase “God I trust you” out loud make a difference during your prayer time?
