Be Anxious for Nothing…

Posted in Bible, G-D, prayer by Tanae' A. on February 27, 2008
Those are the words that I have been continuously hearing for the past two weeks. Be anxious for nothing, be anxious for nothing, be anxious for nothing… but in EVERYTHING by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving make your requests known unto God. Funny thing is that up until today, I didn’t take time out to think about the rest of the verse. Someone just kept telling me be anxious for nothing and thats what I kept feeding my spirit but I didnt realize that I was only eating half a meal. but in EVERYTHING by PRAYER and supplication WITH THANKSGIVING make your requests known unto God. So, I’m sitting here trying to wait for God to give me this that and the other but I aint making my requests known. But even before that the thing that grabbed my attention was the supplication with thanskgiving. To supplicate is to go to God humbly in prayer. Its not just to pray, “Oh God, I need this, this and this. Ame.” No, it’s going to God with nothing, its coming before Him even at your lowest and saying “Look God, here I am. I have nothing if I dont have You.” That small part of the scripture reminds me that sometimes I cant go to God as I would anybody else. When I go to God, sometimes I gotta take off the mask, drop the weight on my shoulders, let go of my pride and just kneel before Him just like I am. Sometimes, I gotta go to Him as just plain old Tanae’, and just thank Him just for plain old Tanae’. It’s amazing because so many times I go to God and I’m going as all this other stuff without really realizing it, I’m going to Him with all this stuff that’s clouding who I am but God is like, I want you as you are and not what this world tries to make you be. That really struck a nerve with me fa’real…. it’s time to start going to Him as humbly as humble can get and thanking Him for everything that I already have and then making my requests known unto him. But EVERYTHING in prayer in supplication, with thanksgiving make your requests known unto Him. I was so stuck on the be anxious for nothing part without really knowing my reasons for believing the first part of that scripture. And now its like, once I think about it and what it is that I am thankful for and what it is that I am requesting I’m realizing that the first part of that falls right into place. When you go to God humbly, with thanksgiving and praises on your lips and you let Him know what it is that you requesting THAN you will see that there is nothing to be anxious about. because when you going humbly you are at a point where you taking time out to listen because you actually want to HEAR what it is that He is saying in response to your requests. When you listen you realize that sometimes you shouldn’t be anxious because the very thing that you are asking for has already been made available to you. So dont waste too much time being anxious for nothing… I wish I could re-write that verse…
Do everything in prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, making your requests known unto God and you will have no reason to be anxious for anything
