Cast your worries on Him!   Leave a comment

Hello Good Evening Hope you had a wonderful service and‎​ beautiful weekend?

Trust you did! *big smile* The past week for me was a fulfilling one but at some point i was really starved, you asked me “starved of what”? CARE Yes! I felt i wasn’t having enough of it. Tapping my fingers and‎​ right away i realized i had more than enough reading through the word

The word says “Humble yourselves under the mighty power of God, and at the right time he will lift you up in honor.  Give all your worries and cares to God, for he cares about you.”

When you have the choice between using your energy to be joyful or using your energy to be joyful or using your energy to fret, which do you choose? In your work, are you able to focus on the task at hand, or do concerns pull your attention away? At home,can you delight in sharing your love with your family and friends, or do you snap and yell at them in your anxiety?

Go for God’s Gold

What in the world can there be that is better for us, than what God wants for us? His will in our lives is perfect, and that’s what we want to strive for. God’s love is better than riches, better than entertainment, better than luxurious surroundings or succulent food.  When we seek God’s will for our lives, it pleases Him, and we can rejoice!

Jesus told His followers “Seek the Kingdom of God above all else, and he will give you everything you need.”  (Luke 12:31) In other words, live for God, and He will provide what you need.  We can trust Him in that and have peace.

We Live for God, Our Lives Show It

When is it easiest to choose to use your energy to be joyful, rather than to fret? When are you most at peace?  When is your life delightful?  What makes you feel like you’ve accomplished the most?

For Christians, we are gladdened when our lives show that we are living for God: we follow His will, sharing His love through the Gospel with many people.

Many Christians feel triumphant peace in the Lord when our lives produce fruit for His glory.  We seek His Kingdom first and trust Him for all else. It’s like relaxing in the arms of a loving parent after a job well done.

We can trust God and lean upon Him. We don’t need to depend on ourselves, letting our own worries get the best of us. When we trust God, we give over our cares to Him and can produce the fruit of good soil.

You will keep in perfect peace all who trust in You, all whose thoughts are fixed on You!” the Prophet Isaiah wrote to God.  He advised His people
“Trust in the Lord always, for the Lord God is the eternal Rock.” (Isaiah 26:3-4) Let us fix our thoughts upon the Lord, for He is our eternal Rock“!

Because We Are Free

Living for God, with our thoughts fixed upon Him, will lead to our caring more deeply about our fellow people. We yearn to share the freedom from sin God gives us with others; because we are free from the burden, we want them to be, too.  We have given our cares to God, and want others to experience that freedom from worry, as well.

“You were cleansed from your sins when you obeyed the Truth, so now you must show sincere love to each other as brothers and sisters.  Love each other deeply with all your heart.  For you have been born again, but not to a life that will quickly end. Your new life will last forever because it comes from the eternal, living Word of God.”

Our God will let us know when we have lived according to His will; one day, we hope to hear Him tell us face-to-face. For now, we are His and each others’ servants. We give over any worry we might have to the Master, trusting in Him, and He will allow our lives to be peaceful, fruitful, and joyful.

Don’t you think you need to encourage someone this evening then DON’T forget to share this piece with your friends and‎​ loved ones. Have a great week.
