“What’s On Your Mind?”

Part 3:  Calm Me Lord

Philippians 4:6-9

do not be anxious about anything, 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 understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.

Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things. 

What you have learned and received and heard and seen in me—practice these things, and the God of peace will be with you.

  1. Worry is the sin of distrusting the promises of God.

 Romans 8:5-6

5 For those who live according to the flesh set their minds on the things of the flesh, but those who live according to the Spirit set their minds on the things of the Spirit. 

For to set the mind on the flesh is death, but to set the mind on the Spirit is life and peace.

 

  2.  Prayer is the key to the peace and the promises of God

  • What the New Testament says about prayer.

 Luke 18:1

1And he told them a parable to the effect that they ought always to pray and not lose heart.

Ephesians 6:18

18 praying at all times in the Spirit, with all prayer and supplication. To that end, keep alert with all      perseverance, making supplication for all the saints,

1 Thessalonians 5:16-18

16 Rejoice always, 17 pray without ceasing, 18 give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.

  •  There is a promise in every prayer.

 Psalm 34:17

17 When the righteous cry for help, the Lord hears and delivers them out of all their troubles.

Jeremiah 29:12

12 Then you will call upon me and come and pray to me, and I will hear you.

2 Chronicles 7:14

14 if my people who are called by my name humble themselves, and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and heal their land.

 

 Take Away of the Day::

 Your Hearts are Guarded against Worry when you Trust and Petition God with Praise!

 Philippians 4:6-9

 do not be anxious about anything, 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 understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.

Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things.
