Thankful Thursday - Assurance

As I read this text this morning, I am thankful for the many, many assurances in scripture which, if we keep them in mind, will take away the recurring fears which daily problems bring our way. Here is a wonderful example:

Do not be anxious about anything,
but in everything, 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.
Phil. 4:6-7

This past week as I was needing to secure funds pay a particular bill by month’s end, I received a phone call from a relative promising to send a check which covered my financial need. It brings to mind another awesome assurance…

And it shall come to pass, that before they call,
I will answer;
and while they are yet speaking, I will hear.
Isa. 65:24

Praise the Lord!

Wonderful post... Those verses in Philippians have been in my mind a lot in the past year... I tend to get so anxious about things because I take my eyes off of Him and concentrate on the problems... then I remember that He can see the whole picture, past, present and future, and that he is in control... that is the best reassurance of all... :)
