With all the craziness going on in the world today, the uncertainties, the unknown, it is so easy to be caught up in all kinds of anxiety and fear. It is no surprise that even a year and a half after its inception, the hot topic on everyone’s lips remains to be Covid 19. So many people have so many questions, nobody seems to know what is true and what is false. People are afraid of losing loved ones, afraid of dying themselves. Many are asking themselves the question what is going to happen if it gets worse?

Amidst dealing with so many emotions, there are so much animosity between people. The ones that is pro mask the ones that don’t wear masks.  Families are fighting over vaccines. Should you vaccinate, should you not. There are so many what if questions. We truly live in a very difficult time.  The most important thing is knowing how to deal with all this fear and anxiety.

The bible teaches what we need to do. In fact, the bible tells us 365 times not to fear.

As a student of the bible, it is common knowledge that when something is mentioned so many times, it is to get our attention and we need to take careful note of it.

My personal favorite scripture on this subject is:

Philippians 4:6–7 (NLT)

6Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done.

7Then you will experience God’s peace, which exceeds anything we can understand. His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus.

The bible tells us that we should not worry but rather go to God with our concerns. When we do this and refuse to submit to the pressures from this world, God will give us a peace that exceeds anything we can understand.  A peace that is surpassing all understanding, a peace that is supernatural and a peace that will make all fear and anxiety flee from our lives.

I pray that you will experience this today and all the days to come,

Peace be to you,
