…“God opposes the proud but gives grace to the humble.” So humble yourselves under the mighty power of God, and at the right time he will lift you up in honor. Give all your worries and cares to God, for he cares about you. 1 Peter 5:5-7 (NLT)
The bible verse above tells us to give our worries and cares to God because He cares for us. Think about that statement. God actually wants your cares and worries! He doesn’t want you to try to struggle and carry them. When issues arise in your life, your response should be to take the problem to God in prayer. How? Simply give the item to God to resolve. Think about the sentences below and see the prayer below:
- What are you worrying about?
- Why are you worrying about it?
- Make a decision to give your worry and cares to God today.
Prayer: God, I thank you that you hear me when I pray. You already know that I’m struggling with __________. God, I’m asking that you take this problem because the bible tells me that you care for me. I literally give this issue to you now and I don’t want to take the worry back. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
