I know that there are days that many of you feel many things, but peaceful certainly isn’t one of them. You have a tendency to think the circumstances in your life should dictate the peace you feel. I’ve come to understand God cares for us so much and everything that concerns us, or rattles our day. We can lay every un-nerving part of it at his feet. In releasing it into God’s hands, it becomes His and no longer ours to carry. Our focus then shifts, from all of the problems to our God. Have a wonderful day as you cast all your worries to God. Love you all in Christ.
“Give all your worries and cares to God, for he cares about you.” 1 Peter 5:7
Even though the circumstances are still surrounding you but so is His strength. Your perspective of the mountain changes when you realize, you are not climbing it alone. Your mind becomes fixed on God, and He takes you to the top of, what seemed, an un-reachable mountain top and showers you with His perfect peace all along the way.
God does not desire for you to carry such a heavy load. Jesus said in Matthew 11:30 “For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.” He wants us to hand it all over to Him. He desires to fill you with joy and happiness. When you follow the paths that He lays out you can find it. But when you insist on carrying it yourself, you lose that joy and happiness and that peace that passes all understanding.
The joy and peace that Jesus gives does not rely on our past or our future, it is available today for us to experience. Give Jesus your cares and be determined that today you will let go of the past and the worry and the fear and live today. Don’t worry about tomorrow or yesterday. Matthew 6:34 Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.
