All your cares and anxiety. It's like taking a fishing rod and reeling it out to the Lord, and giving it to him not pulling it back. Do you realize how much less stress we would have if we would learn to cast ALL of our cares on him? We need to get good at casting... why? Because he cares for you. Whatever matters to you matters to him. You can't control the uncontrollable, you have to trust that God will take care of what you can't control. Don't lose your peace and joy over something you can't control. God is bigger than any of our problems. HE HAS GREATER CAPACITY TO CARRY OUR PROBLEMS THAN WE EVER COULD. So we can trust that God will catch and carry them.
This is how I encourage my faith and keep my eyes on Jesus. It's how I lift my sights high above my circumstances. It's how I trust God and let him control what I can't.
Sometimes, trusting God with a situation is easier said than done. That's when we have to dig a little deeper into God to keep ourselves from giving in to fear.
Look at the verses below and commit them to memory. Then, when fear tries to rise up and choke your faith, speak them aloud to yourself. Let them become anchors for your faith.
When fear and anxiety come knocking on your door let faith answer!
JOSHUA 1:9; PSALM 34:4; 2 TIMOTHY 1:7; PHILIPPIANS 4:8
