There are so many times in the past I would find myself tied up in knots emotionally over worries of which I had no control. These worries have come in many forms..sometimes relational, financial, in matters of health and on occasion even work related. I used to feel that somehow by worrying about them it would help resolve the problem. I would from time to time lay them at His feet and then shortly thereafter pick them back up again…
Lately God has been reminding me that as I walk in His ways, being obedient to His word and seeking His face I have every right to bring these “cares of the world” and lay them at His feet and leave them there! He not only will allow me to do so but that He wants me to lay my cares at His feet. The creator of the Universe actually cares for His creation and longs to have a personal relationship with us. Awesome!
Though I have gone through trials and tribulations throughout various times in my life He has never left me nor forsaken me. He has never let me go hungry or without shelter. He has and will continue to take care of His own. I am grateful that I serve a God of love and mercy. A God that forgives when I ask Him. A God that answers my prayers.
Next time you are tempted to pick those worries and burdens back up and throw them on your back, remember He is much more able to carry them and to answer your prayers in ways well beyond what you could do.
I have been young, and now am old; yet have I not seen the righteous forsaken, nor his seed begging bread.
