Do you ever worry so much that your heart hurts?
For worriers, Paul first prescribed peace with God. Second, he prescribed peace with others. Third, he prescribed peace within ourselves. The Apostle wrote that we should not worry about anything. Rather, we should pray about everything so that Christ would align our hearts with His, giving us perfect peace.
“Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus” (Philippians 4:6-7).
Anxiety’s misaligned inner being divides trust between God and ourselves, which actually pains our hearts. Prayer is worry’s antidote because it places our trust solely in Christ.
Next time you worry, pray — go online with God and upload your requests to Him. He will download His presence, and you will experience the peace of your heart aligned with His.
