Inspirational Bible Verses: "Be anxious for nothing..."

Found in the book of Philippians, this inspirational Bible verse shows us how to have the peace of God. But 'peace' may be more than you thought..."


Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all comprehension, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:6-7

 

Be anxious for nothing,

You're kidding me, right? How is this done? Is it possible.

but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God.

Let's say that it at least starts with a conintual coming into the presence of God. In all things, practice His presence. It can be done, as I've said elsewhere. We are helped greatly with this by bringing to it a flavor of thanksgiving. Everything we do for and with God is aided by an attitude of response shaped by a thankful spirit for what God has already done.

And the peace of God, which surpasses all comprehension, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.

As we've already said in this encouraging Bible verse, 'peace' in the Biblical sense of the word is not merely the absence of conflict but the presence of wholeness...and life. Living in the presence of God can be a mysteriously transforming experience, which this verse alludes to.

This kind of peace protects the heart and mind (the intuitive and thinking capacities) towards a holistic health of being.
