Set aside your fears by praying for peace
And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:7
It can be really easy to dwell on all the possible things which may go wrong within your day and the plans you make. For example, I am going overseas for the first time and my mind seems to focus on all the possible things which may go wrong; missing flights, transfers, losing bags etc. But as I prepare for my trip, I have learnt to stop worrying about things which may never come to pass, and start praying for peace, protection and guidance. This has allowed me to set aside my fears and allow for the flow of peace which only comes from our Heavenly Father.
Prayer for today: God I pray that I will not be afraid and let my mind worry, rather by prayer and petition make my requests known to you so I may have your transcending peace.
Song for today: As I was writing this devotion I was listening to the song take heart by Hillsong.
I encourage you to listen to it on Youtube as you spend time in God’s presence.
