Don’t worry about anything, but in everything, through prayer and petition with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses every thought, will guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus. -Philippians 4:6-7 (HCSB)
There is a tremendous freedom in realizing that worry is a choice, not a necessity. Moreover, God is the source of strength we need to overcome it through making a decision. However, if we don’t know God and don’t take the time in prayer and study of His Word each day, we will miss that gift of peace which surpasses understanding.
