I was talking to a couple of women a few summers ago about the scripture that says, "Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus." (Philippians 4:6-7)
I will never forget when one of the women said, "Well, that's nice, but it's impossible to not worry about anything." And yet, that's what God tells us to do. Would God tell us to do something that isn't even a possibility? Now, I'll give her this—in our own power, it's not even remotely possible. Ah, but that's where we have an advantage as followers of Christ. We don't do the big stuff (or even the little stuff at times) in our own power. We have the power and the strength of Jesus Christ moving in us and through us!
Life can seem absolutely overwhelming at times. Fear, worry, and even our own insecurities can be too much too handle in our own power, but when we take them on with the power of Christ, we can overcome anything!
