God cares about everything that concerns you. He cares about your children. He cares about you finding employment. He cares about your bills being paid. He cares about your living situation. He cares about your health. He cares about your relationships. He cares about YOU. So many of us are worked up and troubled with day to day cares. How easily we forget that God cares about us. As you go about your day, remember to pray about the situations that keep tugging at you. Then after you pray, begin to thank God that He has heard your prayers. When you do this, God says that you will experience great peace. When we are distracted with cares, we can easily make choices out of desperation that we later regret. However, when we have peace, we can hear His instructions and wisdom clearly.
“Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done. Then you will experience God’s peace, which exceeds anything we can understand. His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus.” Philippians 4:6-7 (NLT)
Thank you for reminding me of how much You care for me. You care about everything that concerns me. Forgive me for being consumed with cares. I realize I don’t have to wreck my brain trying to figure things out. I give every situation I’m facing to You right now and I thank You for working it all out. I receive Your peace right now and my ears are open to hear and obey Your instructions and wisdom. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
