๐Ÿ‘‘ Guarded

โ€œBe careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God. And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesusโ€ย (Philippians 4:6,7).

With todayโ€™s Scripture in our hearts and minds, those hearts and minds are guarded!

Second Timothyย 3:12ย tells us:ย โ€œYea, and all that will live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution.โ€ย Actsย 14:22ย says of Paul and Barnabas:ย โ€œConfirming the souls of the disciples, and exhorting them to continue in the faith, and that we must through much tribulation enter into the kingdom of God.โ€ย Whenever we purpose to live godly in Christ Jesus, we will suffer persecution. This is aย factย of Christian doctrine, even though the popular idea in โ€œchurchianityโ€ today is that God wants to remove all of our problems (or remove us from them).

If Satan cannot cause us to change or pervert the doctrine that we teach and preach, then he will do his best in using whatever he can to stop us from teaching and preaching. In other words, after unsuccessfully attacking the message, he proceeds to attack the messenger. Should we worry? Should that bother us? Should we fret? Should that discourage us from even trying to do right at all?ย No, dear friends, no!ย Todayโ€™s Scripture reminds us not to beย โ€œcarefulโ€โ€”we shouldย notย be anxious, worrisome, taking thought of it.

Inย our circumstances,ย regardlessย of our circumstances, we areย โ€œby prayer and supplication with thanksgiving [to] let [our] requests be made known unto God.โ€ย Why? Prayer isย notย designed to change our circumstances, as commonly thought, but it is to changeย usย withinย as we endure those circumstances.ย โ€œThe peace of God, which passeth understanding, shall keep [our] hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.โ€ย The idea here withย โ€œkeepโ€ย is guard. Satan is out to harm us internally (mentally and spiritually). Thankfully, God has given us the abilityโ€”through His written Word and us praying according to it rightly dividedโ€”so we can ward off his attacks. Ultimately, it will cause us to think of our circumstances the way God Himself does. source

Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise: be thankful unto him, and bless his name. For the LORD is good; his mercy is everlasting; and his truth endureth to all generations. — Psalm 100:4-5
