Read Philippians 4:6-7 (https://bit.ly/3cHtqg5)
When fear has us by the throat, our go-to reaction should be prayers of thanks—even if we don’t feel like it. It’s a learned response. Making thanksgiving a habit in the face of fear transforms attitude and perspective. Like many of you, I’ve been alone in my house for over a month—a breeding ground for complaining and fear. “What if I get sick and die, and no one finds me?” Such fears can sap the joy out of life. God tells us giving thanks brings peace beyond our understanding to guard our hearts and minds. When we step out in obedience to God’s commands, things change. Bemoaning my situation becomes, “Thank you, God, for my home, health, family and friends to visit on ZOOM, and Your Presence in this place to encourage, comfort, protect, and speak to me through Your Word.” Even fearful situations become blessings when wrapped in thanks to God.
