“How to Face the Unknown”
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
We are living in UNCERTAIN times, with the elections over, and a NEW slate of leaders to govern our Nation, we face the UNKNOWN. To some it brings anxiety, uncertainty, and worry. We question the leadership qualities of a NEW leader. Will they be able to accomplish what is needed to SAVE our Nation? Can they bring the people together? Will they be able to protect us from our enemies? And so on.
The Word of God gives us instruction as to HOW WE CAN FACE THE UNKNOWN. The Apostle Paul gave this HOPE to the TRUE BELIEVERS in Philippi. He said: “Do not be ANXIOUS about ANYTHING, but in EVERY situation, by PRAYER and PETITION with THANKSGIVING, present your requests to God.” Many did just that, during the election, we came together as ONE people, SEEKING God and PRAYING and PETITIONING Him concerning our requests. He heard and I believe He answered, because we exemplified our FAITH and TRUST in Him, to save our land.
The Apostle Paul goes on to say when we do this, God will give us His PEACE, a PEACE, which goes far beyond ALL understanding, and it will guard our HEARTS and MINDS in Christ Jesus. That is HOW TO FACE THE UNKNOWN, but if you have NOT TRULY given your HEART and LIFE to God, then you are NOT able to face the UNKNOWN without being ANXIOUS, UNCERTAIN, and WORRIED about the future, and you can’t have that PEACE that passes ALL understanding. You are LOST and SEPARATED from God and ALL that is GOOD with a very BLEAK future, an ETERNITY in Hell, but God, in His ABUNDANT MERCY and AMAZING GRACE, has provided a WAY for you to CHANGE your destiny; by coming to Him with a TRUE REPENTANT HEART, and CONFESSING your sins to Him, and asking Him for His FORGIVENESS, BELIEVING, with ALL your HEART, that Jesus died for YOU, and is ALIVE in Heaven, making intercession for you, before God, then ACCEPT His gift of SALVATION, and exchange your ANXIETY, UNCERTAINITY, and WORRY for PEACE that transcends ALL understanding. Do it NOW, while you still can. He’s waiting and coming SOON!!!
