God’s word for times like these – Day 9

Posted in Church Ministries / Family Space

We’ve reached the second last day of Scripture Union International’s daily devotional series “God’s word for times like these”

Philippians 4:4-9

Fear has the power to paralyse us and send us cowering in dark places. Paul reminds us that the best weapon against fear is prayer, as prayer leads us to God. We serve a God who is all knowing and merciful, who will never turn a blind eye to our every day challenges. He is the God who understands our greatest fear and sent his divine Holy Spirit to comfort us. What are your fears as you gaze into the next few days? When we pray, God transforms our fears, making them insignificant as he enlarges our view of him. May you and I find great comfort in the words of Jesus when he said, “Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.” Matthew 6:34). Earlier on in this passage, He had asked a soul-searching question, “Can any one of you, by worrying, add a single hour to your life?” (vs 27). When you and I choose not to worry, we are demonstrating our faith in God Almighty!
