Philippians4:6-7 (HCSB)
6 Don’t worry about anything, but in everything, through prayer and petition with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God. 7 And the peace of God, which surpasses every thought, will guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.

It would be nice if verse 7 said, “and God will do exactly what you ask just the way you think He should do it.” Well...that’s not what it says. It says to tell God your requests and He will give you the peace of God to guard your heart and mind. I have had some painful things I’ve struggled with and shed many tears and endured sleepless nights over, as I’m sure most of you have had. One morning, during my prayer time, I just cried out to God and told Him that I could not handle the hurt anymore and He was going to have to help me. He put a friend in my path that day that He spoke through, and I have never felt the same pain again over that situation. He took the hurt away and gave me His peace. The situation didn’t go away, but He guarded my heart and mind from it. His Word and promises can be trusted! Let your requests and petitions be made known to Him! He’s the only one that can do anything with it!
