“Paul’s Advice for Anxiety” Part 2

HOST: Andrew Crowe




Show Notes:

  • Last week, we covered the need to stop worrying! This week, we begin looking at what one can do to combat it.

Outline of this episode:

  • “…but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God” (Phil. 4:6b).
    • God does not simply say, “Stop worrying” but He also tells us how we can combat it!
  • How many nights have we stayed up with worry on our minds? Do they creep up on us at work and hinder our abilities to perform?
    • Instead of spending so much time worrying about it, why not take the time to go to God in prayer?
    • Prayer is a valuable tool in our lives (Eph. 6:18-19).
  • Paul uses three words to discuss the act of prayer.
    • Prayer: Simply means we talk to God concerning the situation.
    • Supplication: This is the act of asking.
    • Request: The idea behind this is to be specific.
  • So far, we have noticed that we should stop worrying about these situations and be more earnest in our prayer lives.
  • What is the effect of this action?
  • “And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.” (Phil. 4:7).
    • God is willing to take our anxieties and give us peace as a trade.
    • This peace passes all understanding…what does that mean?
    • Think of a chocolate pie. Would you rather me give the ingredients and tell you how to cook it or would you rather experience it?
    • God’s peace is better experienced than explained.
  • Next week: We will look at Phil. 4:8-9 and where our thoughts should go.
