…do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God.
What do you worry about? Money? Your job? Your family?
You know, if you think about it, worry really is useless. It has never solved a problem, never dried a tear, and never changed anything. And most of us spend most of our time worrying about things that will never happen or circumstances we can’t change anyway!
Worry saps your strength, destroys your spirit, and robs you of the joy in life. It takes its toll physically, emotionally, and spiritually.
Someone once said, “Worry is assuming responsibility that God never intended for you to have.”
Yet it seems so much easier to worry about things instead of sharing those concerns with God. But that’s exactly what He wants you to do! He wants you to offer your concerns up to Him in prayer.
Today, I want to encourage you to stop worrying about your future, because God’s in control of your future! Don’t worry about your life, because He holds your life in His hands. Don’t worry about anything, but rather, pray about everything!
There’s nothing too great for God. There’s no problem too hard for God to solve and there’s no problem too small for God.
Pray confidently, and ask, seek, and knock continually. Because only in trusting God will you find true contentment in this life.
