Stressed out? Worried? Overwhelmed? Confused? If any of these words describe you at this very moment, I have some great news for you…God is in control, you don’t have to figure this out on your own!
Stop carrying the load of life’s problems on your shoulders. You have been given authority by the name of Jesus to have peace when it seems like all hell has broke loose in your life. You can and will be victorious if you will completely trust God and His Word. Have faith that He is working everything out behind the scenes.
Once you have gone to God and prayed about this particular thing happening in your life, now your job is to JUST BELIEVE! Often times we say, “I’m just trusting God!” But are we trusting God when we are still worrying? Mark 11:23 says, “shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe…” The real test of trust is when you can say,
“I DON’T CARE!”
That’s true freedom…worry free and care free, EVEN in the most challenging times!
When you feel like you just can’t take anymore and you’ve come to the end of your rope…don’t go there! Instead, QUICKLY get in God’s Word and let it strengthen and energize your faith. It will no longer just be words on a page, but words to live by!
I haven’t “arrived” yet at completely being able to not stress out over things, but day by day I see progress in my spiritual journey in living worry free. It would never be possible for me without my daily fellowship with Him. Don’t take your prayer time lightly, value the fact that Almighty God cares about every single detail of your life. He hears you and He’s there for you…
“But God did listen!
He paid attention to my prayer.
Praise God, who did not ignore my prayer
or withdraw his unfailing love from me.”
(Psalm 66:19-20 NLT)
We are not like the rest of the world who have no hope and have to try and figure life out by themselves. We have been given promises by God for victorious living and not just when we get to heaven, but down here on earth NOW!
So, I encourage you today to LET GO AND LET GOD! Trust and believe He’s working everything out for your good! Now go have yourself a good day…He’s got this!
