This is faster than a 24-hour diet, a 12-step program or an instant make-over. This is God’s Four Step Program to worry-free living:
- Do not be anxious about anything.
- Ask God for what ever you need.
- Always give thanks.
How do I know this? See for yourself.
In every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. (Philippians 4:6, NIV)
“If God, then, puts or permits anything hard in our lives, be sure that the real peril, the real trouble, is that we shall lose if we flinch or rebel.” –Maltbie Davenport Babcock (1858-1901, writer of the hymn This is my Father’s World)
Prayer-Lord, guide us as we walk in your steps…in Christ. Amen.
