We are fearful and anxious. It is a by product of our missing God’s goal for our lives. It is way to easy to let my heart to be troubled. Most days are a challenge. Some are not.
So, what are the facts here? I believe in God. I believe in Jesus. God and Jesus are in a good mood and want the best for me. That is the truth and the real deal. I need to start there and stay there.
Anxiety is the natural result when our hopes are centered in anything short of God and his will for us.
William Franklin (Billy) Graham
Since worrying should not be a part of a believer’s life, how does one overcome worry? We are instructed to “cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you.” God does not want us to carry around the weight of problems and burdens. God is telling us to give Him all of our worries and concerns.
Why does God want to take on our problems? The Bible says it is because He cares for us. God is in a good mood. God is concerned about everything that happens to us. No worry is too big or too small for His attention. When we give God our problems, He promises to give us the peace which transcends all understanding. Can I get a shout out about that?
