Anxious for nothing but patience and peace

Hold on to your faith.

It’s been six weeks sense Hurricane Harvey came through our city. I know that for some the sting of the lost is still heavy on our hearts.

I want to thank God and thank each and every person who descended on our community to rescue, rip out and now beginning the repair and restoration. Your support and efforts are truly appreciated.

The book of James encourages us to “be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.”

I can understand that this may be a little difficult considering what we have been through. However, I want you to know that truly the peace of God will help bring you through.

The peace of God is so powerful that as you are moving through the routine of you day God is building His case on the pages of your life. A case that will prove that He is still in control and that all things work together for the good of those who love Him, the called according to His purpose.

One of the toughest challenges of the process of going through is that when will I come to the end? The more anxious we are the less patient we become. The less anxious we are the more patient we become.

The book of James also encourages us in the area of patience in that we are to let patience have its perfect work, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking nothing. As much as we are ready to have the lack of our lives filled one thing that will deter the fulfillment is being anxious. Therefore, I am touching and agreeing with you that if you become anxious you will be anxious for patience and peace.

Dear heavenly Father I degree and declare the manifestation of your Word in the lives of these your people. I proclaim as you sustained your people in the wilderness for forty years that you sustain these your children now during this weeks of restoration. I release according to your word the power of restoration and reconciliation upon everyone who has been affected. In Jesus name, Amen.

Peace, patience and God’s promises be upon you this day and forever.
