The moment you beginning worrying it means you’ve picked up something that God is supposed to be carrying.
For example, when it comes time to pick up a feather you never worry if you will be able to heave up that heavy load, you know you can do that. But if you saw one of your children trapped under a car you’d rush to try to lift the car but worry would grip you heart as to whether or not you could achieve your goal; and I’m guessing you’d be screaming for help.
Every day we are given opportunities to worry, be afraid, and be frustrated. Every time that happens it means we’re trying to pick up something that is beyond our ability and control. Why do that? Give it to God. It’s called prayer.
- The ONE THING for today: Like the game of “hot potato”, the moment worry, fear, and frustration grips your heart – toss them over to God. You were not meant to carry the weight of the world. That’s God’s job.
1 Peter 5:7 (NKJV)
7 casting all your care upon Him, for He cares for you.
