STOP WORRYING!!!  Yes, I’m talking to you!  The time has come for you to take ALL of your concerns and cares to the altar and leave them there.  Often times you say you’ve given it to God, but you really haven’t because you’re still worrying and stressing about whatever you claimed you took to God.  Let’s look at 1 Peter 5:6,7.  It says, “Therefore humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God, that He may exalt you in due time, casting all your care upon Him, for He cares for you.”  Now, the Word just said God would exalt you in due time.  So right there you should stop and reread what he said.  What God is saying to you is to sit still and be patient.  He’s got it all under control.  He loves you so much, and He’s going to do what’s best for you, but you’ve got to understand this will all be done according to His perfect timing…not yours!

If worry and stress are factors in your life I want to help set you free!  2 Corinthians 10:4-6 states “For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds, casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ, and being ready to punish all disobedience when your obedience is fulfilled.”  When the pressures and cares of this life weigh you down your first reaction should be to turn to God.  He is the One Who has the power to get you through anything.

I know it’s easier said then done, but releasing stress and worry are things you must do in order to live a life filled with peace.  I’m convinced that resting in the relationship we have with God heals us, not only from worry, but the feeling of vulnerability.  The closer you get to God the more you’ll come to know and understand God’s got you covered.
