and he will take care of you.
He will not permit the godly to slip and fall.” (Psalm 55:22 NLT)
He will take care of us when we allow Him to do so. How do we know? Do we believe His Word?
Whatever is burdening us down–sickness, disease, mental oppression and depression, apathy, financial insecurity, feelings of loneliness or being unloved–whatever it is–we must learn to give it all to Him and He will take care of us!
The biggest obstacle in our lives in receiving all that God has for us–is us! As long as we think we can “do everything on our own” without His guidance, we will be burdened with those things that we do not have to hold onto. His love and compassion, grace and mercy are more than enough to handle whatever problems we think we have. We must develop uncompromising faith in Him to know that He will do all He says He will do.
Father, in the name of Jesus, we willingly give all of our burdens to You this day. We acknowledge that we can do nothing without You and we know that Your Word is true and everything You say You’ll do, You will do because You are not a man who should lie. Help us to develop the kind of trust and faith in You that we know we have nothing to fear or to worry about with You handling all of our affairs. Now, help us to hear You and immediately obey so we can have all of the many benefits that You have in store for us.
We give You our finances, our health, our children, our spouses, our loved ones, our concerns about worldly affairs and peace, and anything else that would keep us from being distracted and our focus off You. Thank You, Lord, for hearing and responding to every one of our needs as only You can, to Your glory. Amen!
