HE’S STILL* GOT THE WHOLE WORLD IN HIS HANDS – 2

PRAY UNTIL PEACE COMES

 

“God whispers during times of pleasure and shouts at us during times of pain” – C. S. Lewis.

 

HOW CAN I FIND PEACE IN TIMES OF UNCERTAINTY?

 

I. GOD WANTS US TO PRAY, NOT TO WORRY 

 

Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.  Philippians 4:6

 

II. PEACE WILL COME WHEN WE PRAY 

 

And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.   Philippians 4:7

 

Principle: Not worrying but praying about everything leads to a life of peace.

 

III. STEPS TO STOP WORRYING AND FIND PEACE

1. Remember that worry is sin.

2. Review theology 

Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice! Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near.   Philippians 4:4-5

3. Recognize God’s purpose in the situation 

being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.   Philippians 1:6

4. Rearrange priorities

33 But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.  Matthew 6:33

5. Redirect focus

Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things. Colossians 3:2

6. Receive the peace that only God can provide (Philippians 4:7)

 

16 Let us then approach God’s throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need.  Hebrews 4:16.

 

28 “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. 29 Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.  Matthew 11:28-29
