Stressed Less Living, by Tracie Miles, has really opened my eyes to some important things in my life. This is my fourth Online Bible Study that I have done and God is really challenging me through this current study.
I am a worrier. What????? Yes, I said it. I say I trust God with all my heart and want Him to just take the garbage that I have in my life…..fears, insecurities, doubts, etc., and lay them all at the feet of Jesus. I struggle with leaving them at the feet of Jesus. Do any of you precious friends ever do this? I take them back. I leave them and then I pick them back up and carry them with me. God wants us to have such an unwavering trust in him that he tells us in the book of Psalm that he has it under control.
“In you our fathers put their trust; they trusted and you delivered them. They cried to you and were saved; in you they trusted and were not disappointed.”
Psalm 22:4-5 NIV84
Our ancestors and people in the Bible have proven God at his word. We can, too. This verse tells us that they trusted and God delivered them. Look at the last part of that verse. “In you they trusted and were not disappointed.” Friends, we can trust in almighty God. We can have the confidence that he will do what he says he will do. He will not disappoint. God is waiting for us to lay it all down at his feet and just let go and let God work. Many times we make life harder than it really is.
In conclusion, do we really trust God at His Word? Do we have the confidence in him to believe he will not disappoint? Precious souls, let’s all just learn to give it all to God and let him transform us into something amazing for him. That’s all he ever wants to do. He says my weary friend, stop struggling with giving me your problems and then taking them back. I’m enough. I’m all you need. I love you.
Matthew 11:30 – “For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.”
Dear Lord I come to you today, asking you to personally help me to have the unshakeable faith and trust in you that I so desire. I know you only have my best interest at heart. Your hope for me is to prosper me and not to harm me. May I believe your Word and lay my problems and worries at your feet and not pick them back up.
