Day 33 - Philippians 4:6-7

2 Minutes - SILENCE, STILLNESS AND CENTERING WITH GOD

Philippians 4:6-7

6 Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. 7 And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.

The natural tendency of my mind apart from God is toward death, not life...When people are alone, undistracted by noise or activity, their minds naturally drift toward an awareness of dis- contentment, a sense of inadequacy, anxiety about the future, and a chronic sense of self-preoccupation.

This is why people generally ee from solitude. Why? Because people hate to be alone with their minds. Television is attractive because it distracts us, but of course in the long run it simply makes our minds that much weaker and more dependent on outside stimulation to keep us entertained. (GICTYT, p. 85-86)

What are you anxious about today that you can release to a faithful God?
