On days when life is difficult and I feel overwhelmed, as I do fairly often, it helps to remember in my prayers that all God requires of me is to trust Him and be His friend.  I find I can do that.

"And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus."

                        Philippians 4:7


After the Israelites left Egypt, they must have been anxious about many things (read Exodus 19). 


“Will we have enough water?”

“What do we do if an enemy attacks us?  None of us are warriors.”

“How will we feed a few million people in the desert?”

“Is Moses the right person to lead us?”


God came upon Mount Sinai in a powerful and awesome display of who He is.  The lightning, trumpet sound, smoke, loud voice, earthquake and fire all said - there is no need to worry because you have the all powerful God of the universe, creator of all things on your side.


God even shows His people that He has resources and solutions that they have never thought about.  The people may be thinking that they need fields of grain to make bread and God sends mana like dew in the morning.  The people may have been looking for clouds in the sky to produce rain and God splits open a rock, of all thing, and out comes a reservoir of water.


Are you concerned about finances, employment, health, or family issues?  Listen to what God says: “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.”

(Philippians 4:6-7)


The Israelites needed to realize that their God was mighty, powerful, awesome and even a little scary.  They needed to recognize that God loved them so much that He loved, protected and carried them like an eagle does with her young. Then they needed to learn to trust that God.


Like the Israelites, we need to catch a vision of who God is and then learn to trust Him with the things are making us anxious.
