4:7 And God’s peace [shall be yours, that tranquil state of a soul assured of its salvation through Christ, and so fearing nothing from God and being content with its earthly lot of whatever sort that is, that peace] which transcends all understanding shall garrison and mount guard over your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.
1 Corinthians 10:13 (Amplified Bible)
10:13 For no temptation (no trial regarded as enticing to sin), [no matter how it comes or where it leads] has overtaken you and laid hold on you that is not common to man [that is, no temptation or trial has come to you that is beyond human resistance and that is not adjusted and adapted and belonging to human experience, and such as man can bear]. But God is faithful [to His Word and to His compassionate nature], and He [can be trusted] not to let you be tempted and tried and assayed beyond your ability and strength of resistance and power to endure, but with the temptation He will [always] also provide the way out (the means of escape to a landing place), that you may be capable and strong and powerful to bear up under it patiently.

Communication with the LORD by prayer and fasting is what GOD wants from us, it's a building of our relationship with the LORD JESUS CHRIST and it's all personal and private. Only the LORD and you know how intimate your relationship with GOD is.
If the LORD withhelds his sustaining upon us, we can't even open our mouth to feed ourselves or to eat. That's how GOOD and GREAT GOD is.
