Take God at His Word

Philippians 4:6,7 Do not worry 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.

It’s one thing to believe that this thing that we call “the Bible” is God’s Word, that it’s true. That’s one thing. But it’s quite another to believe that what God has to say, is actually true in my life, and in yours. That’s a whole deeper level of faith.

Do you believe that God means what He says? Yes or no. Because if you do, then it turns out He has some pretty outrageous things to say.

I was once at a small Bible study group and we were looking at this passage:

Philippians 4:6,7 Do not worry 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.

Okay, so we talked about that for a while, everyone shared their worries, their concerns, their fears. Great. And after twenty minutes or so, the group leader summed it all up something like this: “Sure, that’s great, but we’re all still going to have worries in life, aren’t we?”

At which point I shouted: “No!!!” They all turned and looked at me. “What is this guy on about?”

“Well,” I continued, “what this says is that we’re not supposed to worry about anything. And if we take the time that we would have spent worrying, and instead, pour our hearts out to God, His promise is that He’ll replace the worry with the most unbelievable peace. In fact, He’ll actually guard our hearts and minds to prevent worry from entering them. Do you believe that or not?”

And that’s the question that each one of us should be asking ourselves. Am I prepared to take God at His Word? Do I believe that His Word is true in my life, or not? Well, do you?

That’s God’s Word. Fresh … for you … today.
