1 Peter 5:7 Give all your worries and cares to God, for He cares about you.
It is that simple.
Oh sure, nothing in life is that simple.
You must have faith.
It is hard to have faith when times are tough. This is the trying of your faith. This is when it really counts.
It is easy to love and praise God during the good times in life.
But when your spouse is laying hands on you… But when you can’t get out of your addiction no matter how hard you pray… When you have been a victim of something truly too much to handle…
This is the time to put your faith in the almighty. God is big enough to carry you through this difficulty. He is there waiting to hear from you. He wants to carry your pain. It is never a wasted prayer. I heard a believer once say, “our prayers are a beautiful aroma to God. For when we pray we show our personal weakness and our belief in the strength of God to pull us through.”
A good prayer might be as short as “help!” It may be longer: “Lord I trust you. I surrender this situation to you. I know you are with me. Show me how to walk through this to the other side”. Some situations are one and done. It is an instant that causes lingering disappointment. Other times, the disappointment is ongoing daily right in the center focus of our lives. Remember God is gracious. He will see you through. Trust him to handle this, to strengthen you to deal with the situation appropriately. Now is not the time to go it alone. Lean on God. Share your concerns, worries and pain. Go to God now in prayer. Remind yourself throughout the day “I surrender this to God”. Then be looking for God’s grace. For listening and caring people. For a way to change the situation. For enough strength to get through the day.
Until Next Time~
