When worry comes knocking at your door, stop it on the porch, otherwise it’ll move in and take up residence. Listen, “Throw the whole weight of your anxieties upon him, for you are His personal concern” (1 Peter 5:7 Phillips) How wonderful; God cares, (He really does), about the things that worry you and prey on your thoughts. He cares about them more than you do. Not a single nagging, aching, worrisome, gut-wrenching, blood-pressure-raising thought escapes His notice. Because “you are His personal concern,” you never disappear from His screen.
What qualifies as a worry? Anything that drains your tank of joy… anything you can’t change… anything you’re not responsible for… anything you’re unable to control… anything that frightens and torments you… anything that keeps you awake when you should be asleep. All of that ‘stuff’ needs to be transformed from your worry list to your prayer list! Listen, “Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all He has done. If you do this, you will experience God’s peace” (Philippians 4:6-7 NLT).
Give each worry, one-by-one, to God! The more you practice doing this, the more exciting your walk with Him will become. You’ll be amazed at how easily He handles things that overwhelm you. Always keep these three things in mind:
(1) He’s able to handle it.
(2) He’s willing to handle it.
(3) He’s waiting for you to give it to Him.
