2 Corinthians 9:6-11

God knows exactly what I need today.

The peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. – Philippians 4:7 (NIV)

Since my husband, Doug, became ill a few years ago, we’ve curtailed many of our activities, including driving in the snow. When it snows on a Sunday, we have a home worship service together. Doug plays the piano, we take turns reading scripture, and we listen to a sermon online.

One Sunday, I couldn’t concentrate on our worship. Snow had fallen fast during the night, and I was worried about clearing the driveway. How can I possibly shovel it by myself? We were nearly finished with our service when I heard scraping outside. I peeked out the window and saw two neighbor boys clearing the driveway. What an answer to our need! Since then, the boys have shoveled for us whenever it snows.

Philippians 4:6 tells us not to be anxious, but to present our requests to God with thanksgiving. This command comes with a promise: the peace of God. I am not sure I prayed about shoveling the snow that day. But since then, whenever I face a new challenge, I pray, “Lord, you know we need ______. Thank you for your provision.” Answers don’t always come in the way I expect. Sometimes God shows me how I can handle the task. Other times God sends someone to help. No matter the situation, God provides.

Heavenly Father, help us trust that you will provide what we need. Banish anxiety from our hearts, and fill us with peace. Amen.
