Refuse to worry. God cares for His children, even more than the grass that He clothes with flowers and the birds that He daily feeds. Yes, you have needs, but “your heavenly Father knows” (Matthew 6:32). Learn to “cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you” (1 Peter 5:7). Keeping some of the anxiety on yourself is to doubt God’s care.
Wow! Keeping some of the anxiety on yourself is to doubt God’s care. I feel I don’t doubt Him and His power to take the anxiety away. If we are faithful maybe it is ok to resolve ourselves to the loss. When the Wolfe is knocking at the door wanting that bill paid, that’s anxiety, it’s a natural feeling right? When your wife is sick, that’s anxiety right? When your child is falling into bad situations, that’s anxiety right? What God wants us to know, from my own experience is that He is here and has not abandoned us, no matter who we are and what we have become. Giving our anxiety to Him is saying that He is in control of our lives and that if something happens He has our back and if we are faithful He will give us an outlet in a bad situation. Trust is the Key. Once we begin to trust that He will make everything right, we will refuse to worry again.
