The Word says “Do not fret or waste too much time about anything, but for everything remember to pray and to thank God for it before it happens” – Philippians 4:6 paraphrased. Here’s what the Word is trying to convey; In the circumstances of life, it’s easy to look at the dark side of the equation. Things can be frightening and worrisome, but the worry and the fear does not resolve any of the issues at hand. What really resolves the difficulties in life is the supplication to God for divine intervention and care, and He always answers in His perfect timing!
I know that we’re made from dust and clay, and the Word says that God knows our frame. So it’s okay to have some human feelings, but the feelings must not be the entire action on our part. We’re to look to God for help, and offer thanks while we’re at it (since this is something we often forget to do). So we MUST thank Christ every time we pray!
