Is your life marked by a state of continual peace, or one of constant uneasiness, worry and anxiety over nearly all things?
Anxiety today is of epidemic proportions. But that just should not be – anxiety has no part in the life of a Christian. For the Christian, anxiety is caused by a lack of faith and trust in the Lord. This is a very important subject, for I constantly see Christians as anxious and worried as those who do not even know God – and some even more so!
But God promises His peace, “The Peace of God,” which surpasses all understanding to those who call on His holy name through prayer in faith. We are to trust in the lord for “all things” – not just some things. Remember in Whom you have placed your faith: the God who simply spoke the entire universe (and all life) into existence! He is NOT a small God! And know that He rules and reigns supreme right now this very day over all matters great and small, and victory has already been won – for He has overcome.
The objectives of this book are therefore threefold:
“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
- Explain that anxiety for a Christian is simply caused by a lack of faith and trust in the Lord,
- Show how you overcome anxiety and obtain the Peace of God which surpasses all understanding,
- Provide specific examples and prayers that you can use when faced with difficult situations.
