“In a world of endless “what ifs” and always changing “what nows,” it’s easy to focus on our circumstances. We allow the bad medical report, the failing economy, the increased violence on the news to plant seeds of fear and worry in our lives. That’s the danger of worry. It grows and takes up precious space in our hearts and minds.
There is good news too. There is something we can do that not only defeats worry, it takes its place. We can choose to take our eyes off of our wavering circumstances, and instead focus on the one who never changes. This is what happens when we pray. In those moments, when we choose prayer over worry, we enter into the presence of our sovereign, loving, wise, unchanging God. We bring Him our praises and our fears. He is famous for replacing worry with peace, fear with trust, and uncertainty with hope. So, what worry is taking up space in your heart? Choose to take it captive and bring it to God in prayer today.”
Get on you knees and surrender your worries to Him who sits on the throne, the one who conquered worry and gave you victory over it.
