2. These are God’s instructions.

3. Success over stress, will only be accomplished through faith in God’s word.
(AND) the (PEACE) of God, which surpasses every thought, will (GUARD) your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.

Guard…speaks of a military action.
Notice the word, (PEACE) now we are starting to see how all this comes together.
I. Don’t Allow Worry to Rule Over You.

Humans are the only thing that God created that doesn’t trust Him.
