Strengthen and Encourage the Brethren 03/15/15

This week’s scripture is from Philippians:

Jesus Christ“Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.”    (Philippians 4:6)

How important it is to spend time in prayer. How easy it is to allow our troubles to distract us from prayer and to be plagued with anxious thoughts, to worry about our situation and to despair about tomorrow. When it seems that things will never get better we need to stop and turn to the Lord, for the Lord is able, and where there does not seem to be a way, the Lord can make a way, and where all seems lost, the Lord can be found.

Let us take hold and trust the Lord, for nothing can happen to us that He cannot handle for us. Let us trust in Him to whom we belong and let us praise Him and give thanks that in every situation He is with us; let us go to Him in prayer and seek His face that we might find our peace in Him.

May the Lord bless you as you pray and give Him thanks in every circumstance.
