Hello and thanks for joining in on to today’s daily devotion. Today is Friday. February 12th. The 6th day of the Hebraic week.

Our verses today is Philippians 4:6,7

Philippians 4:6,7
6 Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, 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.

You know, sometimes, it can be very easy to let anxiety over take our thoughts. But have you ever wondered why? Normally, it’s because we want something to happen a certain way or by a certain time. Yet, we are encouraged here to present our requests to God in prayer with thanksgiving and to not be anxious. We all know that this can be so much easier said than done right?

We are then told that the peace of God will guard our hearts and our minds in Yashua. You see, when we submit our requests up in prayer, there is really nothing else that can be done in most circumstances. When we submit our requests up in prayer, we are handing it over to Him.

We know He wants what is best for us. Is there really anything else that needs to be said then? That knowledge alone should bring us peace. If we make our request to Him, do we really think he will refuse that request out of spite? Even if the answer is “no,” it’s only because He knows what is best even though it may not make any sense to us at the moment.

It all comes down to the question “Do you believe that He has your best interest in mind?” If so, then submit your request and rest in Him.

Let this be a focus in your time of meditation throughout the day. Until tomorrow, shalom!
