Our Daily Manna 27 February 2023 – LEARN FROM THE CATERPILLAR! KILL ANXIETY!


Welcome and see what Natalie Goldberg penned – “Stress is an ignorant state. It believes that everything is an emergency. Nothing is that important.” Then the great Epictetus penned: There is only one way to happiness and that is to cease worrying about things which are beyond the power of our will.” I do not ever forget that: Just when the caterpillar thought the world was ending, he turned into a butterfly!


Wow!“Be anxious for nothing but in everything by prayer and supplication, let your request be made known to God. And the peace of God which passes all understanding, shall guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus” (Philippians 4:6-7). I once lived with an aunty who used to spend a greater part of the night thinking of what menu/meal, to prepare the next morning. She never took the advice of her children who suggested a menu table.

She continued this way, until she was diagnosed to be hypertensive. Your problem may not be that of what to eat but there’s something that has bothered you day and night and you know that worrying has not brought any solution. Maybe you have prayed about it, and if you actually did pray, then you should not be seen worrying.


It only shows a lack of trust in God. In Psalm 37:5, the Bible says, “Commit yourself to the Lord,Trust also in Him, and He will do it.” Blaise Pascal opined: “He that takes truth for his guide, and duty for his end, may safely trust to God’s providence to lead him aright.” Follow the instructions in the Basic Scripture for today and in Philippians 4: 6-7. Do not worry about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication, commit it to God and leave it by trusting Him. He will do it. This is the only way to attract peace. It is a form of exchange program. GIVE HIM (GOD) YOUR WORRIES and HE WILL GIVE YOU HIS PEACE. A sister sent in the poem below from a write-up: A smile can cancel pain. And camouflage despair. But trust in God, gives inner peace, And joy beyond compare.

Joy is the product of trust in God. Let no devil or circumstance steal your joy. Remember the Caterpillar which became the butterfly! Don’t quit! Hold on and hold out! Peace! (Give out at least 7 ODM copies, send message to [email protected] and I shall send you prayers on: “LORD, turn the ODDs in my favour this year”).

PRAYER POINTS: Take Song 1: Higher ground…
