I, THE CREATOR OF THE UNIVERSE, am with you and for you. What more could you need? When you feel some lack, it is because you are not connecting with Me at a deep level. I offer abundant Life; your part is to trust Me, refusing to worry about anything.
It is not so much adverse events that make you anxious as it is your thoughts about those events. Your mind engages in efforts to take control of a situation, to bring about the result you desire. Your thoughts close in on the problem like ravenous wolves. Determined to make things go your way, you forget that I am in charge of your life. The only remedy is to switch your focus from the problem to My Presence. Stop all your striving, and watch to see what I will do. I am the Lord!
[ROMANS 8:31–32; MICAH 7:7; 1 CORINTHIANS 12:3]
YOU ARE ACCUSTOMED TO WORRY-THOUGHTS roaming freely in your brain, so you must train yourself to bring all your cares into My Presence. Remember that you are never alone in your struggles: I am always aware of you and your circumstances. I can help you because I have all authority in heaven and on earth.
Let [God] have all your worries and cares, for he is always thinking about you and watching everything that concerns you.
~ 1 PETER 5:7 [TLB]
Jesus came and spoke to [the disciples], saying, “All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth.”
MATTHEW 28:18 [NKJV]
Before You Turn Out the Light:
If your mind and heart have wandered today, give yourself grace, and return to Me now.
