Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God.
Philippians 4:6

It is not an issue of whether hardship will come into our lives; it is an issue of what we will do when it actually does. Our natural inclination is to freak out, to stress out, and to worry. But that doesn’t help—it actually makes it worse. So what should we do instead? We need to pray.

We need to develop a reflex when it comes to hardship in our lives. In times of trouble, some turn to other people. There is a place for that, but ultimately, people cannot meet all our needs. No one will be able to do that for us. Others turn to alcohol. But that only creates new problems. Others tune out and pretend that bad things aren’t really happening.

What we need to do is, turn to God. We need to take those circumstances and put them into God’s hands. As Philippians 4:6 tells us, “Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God.” The best antidote for worry is prayer, so put your hands together and talk to God today. Let your troubles be known to our Lord and ask Him for advise. He will help you overcome even the greatest of tragedies.

May the Lord bless you & provide what we all need to do His will,

Brother Jonathan
