Four Ways To Bring Peace
By Terry Angles | 3/27/2020


As we continue to deal with the Coronavirus, it is obvious that fear of the unknown is creating anxiety and worry.  These two emotions often conclude, “God is not bigger than my immediate problem,” and then we assume the responsibility to “fix” things we have no control over.

 

At this point no one has a solution to the virus as it continues to grow.  As most of us are staying home, it results in loss of income and sometimes loss of jobs.  All this creates more worry and anxiety.   

 

God has a solution and we must learn to trust Him through all of our circumstances.  God knows our needs and will supply them.  “And this same God who takes care of me will supply all your needs from his glorious riches, which have been given to us in Christ Jesus” (Phil. 4:19).  


Use these four ideas to bring you peace.

 

1.         Discern the areas of your life that create worry. (Your health, Your job, Your             possessions, Your money, etc.)


2.         Let go of your worries through prayer.  Believe “that all things work together for           good to those who love Him” (Rom. 8:28,29).


3.         Expect God to test your faith.  Sometimes our faith gets weak and we start to    become anxious. We need to go back to prayer and apply our faith.  “By faith Abraham, when he was tested, offered up Isaac…because he believed God was able to raise him from the dead” (Heb. 11:17-19).


4.         Praise God no matter what.  “In all things give thanks for this is the will of God in    Christ Jesus” (I Thess. 5:18).  God’s plan is always right, and we need to believe that. Give God time to work out His will.

 

Right now, I I need to be careful of being anxious concerning the finances of Faith Bible Church.    


I don’t know where the income to pay bills will come from, but it’s God’s church and He will do what’s best.  


Let’s all be in prayer and don’t let worry paralyze us!
