Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. (NIV) ( Philippians 4:6 )
Do your best with the talents God has given you, and relinquish to Him the things over which you have no control. When you turn all of your worries to God, a sense of peace will set in. If you feel anxiety and worry building up in your thoughts, take a moment to ask your Heavenly Father to calm your fears. Remember to thank Him by acknowledging that He is the creator of this earth.
Let the wicked forsake his way and the evil man his thoughts. Let him turn to the LORD, and he will have mercy on him, and to our God, for he will freely pardon. (NIV) ( Isaiah 55:7 )
The Old Testament documents God chasing after His children relentlessly. They continuously turn from Him, yet He still is graceful and merciful. As children of God, He has chased after us and forgiven us of our sins. It is our duty as Christians to continuously chase after others and show them the love of God, even if they turn from us. As difficult as it may be, is there anyone in your life who needs your forgiveness and mercy?
Into your hands I commit my spirit; redeem me, O LORD, the God of truth. (NIV) ( Psalm 31:5 )
Times get tough and life is not easy. Place your faith in God, look to Him for protection. Pray to Him and tell Him your worries. He is always there, faithfully waiting for you to come to Him. If you are having a hard time seeing God’s faithfulness, ask Him to open your eyes. Ask Him to show you all that He is doing in your life.
