Paul's Strategy.

Often our reading of our Bibles is only just 'reading'.  Thus we miss out of what God is trying to impart to us.  I came to this awakening/revelation after reading Mr James R Ettwein's meditation on Feb 17 2012 entitled "In the Middle of the Night" in the Upper Room.  The bible verses worth ruminating and applying them for ourselves are Phillipians 4: 6 - 7: "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."  Are there cares/concerns and anxieties weighing you down?  Paul says "do not be anxious about anything" and he follows up with the Holy Spirit-filled strategy "present your requests to God" - telling Him of your anxieties/fears/whatever and to give you peace!  After that, the peace of God which transcends understanding should encompass you as you have unburdened your heart and your mind.  So just don't be anxious, present your  requests and experience God's peace!  May the Holy Spirit indwells in you always!
