1 Peter 5:7 NLT – Give all your worries and cares to God, for he cares about you.
When I read this verse, I remembered a pastor’s saying: “Make it easy on yourself, make it hard for God.” This truth is a powerful gift God gave us that we never (or seldom) take advantage of! But it is God’s heart. God desires us not to worry about our lives, and just let Him take care of all our worries. God has actually provided all the power and resources we need when Jesus died on the cross and resurrected from the grave. Thus since 2000+ years ago, God has already cared and provided for all our needs! It is already there! All we have to do is believe that He has already provided everything we need to live according to His plans, and receive every blessing needed to overcome any situation that is causing us to worry. It is like believing you have a treasure buried in your backyard. It has been there for a long time and it is yours. All you need to do is find it and claim it.
And God did not just provide for your financial needs. He provided for ALL your needs. Physical healing and wholeness, emotional healing, relational healing, love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control, …, ALL of your needs!
“If you believe, you will receive whatever you ask for in prayer (Matthew 21:22 NIV).” God loves you and He is greater than what you think. Make it easy on yourself and make it hard for God. 🙂
Prayer Starter: Dear God, even before I was born, you have already provided for all my needs so that I would be “care-free!” You have made sure I would be able to live a free and victorious Godly life. Thank you God for your overwhelming care and love for me. I believe and receive all your blessings today, and I will live according to Your Word. I love You Lord Jesus! Amen.
