What’s on your worry list today? Are you anxious about the future? Do you fear you won’t have enough money to make the house payment? Are you fearful of a positive COVID19 diagnosis? Are you up in arms about the coming election? Do you think we are headed for the end of the world?
We seem to have our share of things to be stressed out about these days. In these difficult times, we could certainly throw up our arms in despair or we could put all our concerns into one giant worry box and burn it up. On the other hand, there is One who can handle the entire load of worries and fears of this age.
Why wait until there is supposedly no hope? Why give in to the temptation that we will never recover – that doomsday is right around the corner – that we have completely lost control of our own destiny?
When it looks like our world is about to crash in on us – when depression turns into anxiety – when we have no control over our feelings that’s the time to call on the name of the Lord.
Prayer shouldn’t be used only as a last resort. It is our open line of communication with God Himself. We should come to Him to lay our cares upon Him, for He has invited us to do so. He has also given us the ability to do what we can in some cases, but ultimately He is the One who controls the outcome.
Start today. Open your voice to Him. Don’t be afraid. He offers answers that we can’t possibly come up with. He is in charge of every star in the heavens and each drop of moisture that falls from the sky. Go to Him with thankfulness and praise and be bold in asking for solutions. He may not answer right away, but He will answer and it will always be for our good.
