#184 The 2024 Regular Legislative Session in Review Pt. 2

”“[...] forsake your worries! Why would you say, ‘What will we eat?’ or ‘What will we drink?’ or ‘What will we wear?’ For that is what the unbelievers chase after. Doesn’t your heavenly Father already know the things your bodies require? “So above all, constantly seek God’s kingdom and his righteousness, then all these less important things will be given to you abundantly. Refuse to worry about tomorrow, but deal with each challenge that comes your way, one day at a time. Tomorrow will take care of itself.”“

These passage helped me so much this morning just to exhale a big breath and say okay Lord. Okay. You are the one who takes care of me. You are the one who sees my every need, knows my every concern and understands the stresses in my life. Help me to do what I can do today. Help me to maximize my day and prioritize it with You and leave the rest up to you. 

You know I had a pastor once who told me that the Bible never says that the Lord won’t give us more than we can bear. She said it’s not a scriptural teaching and cannot be found in the Bible. It’s just that religious and well-meaning people have said it for so long we assume it’s true. It’s not. What the Bible does teach is that He will never leave us alone. That He expects us to cast our worry, cares on Him. That we are commanded not to fear and not to be anxious for any reason. And it promises us that if we are yoked to Him and walking in synced-up partnership with Him, His yoke is easy and His burden is light. The scripture says that He daily carries our burdens for us. The key is releasing those to Him and not trying to carry them ourselves. So let me encourage you to take that big breath, exhale it out and say Lord thank You for carrying my burdens and knowing what concerns me. I will leave them in Your very capable hands.
