He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High will abide in the shadow of the Almighty. I will say to the Lord, “My refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust.” For he will deliver you from the snare of the fowler and from the deadly pestilence. He will cover you with his pinions, and under his wings you will find refuge; his faithfulness is a shield and buckler. You will not fear the terror of the night, nor the arrow that flies by day, Psalm 91:1-5
There’s a certain amount of peace you experience when you’re in God’s care. Even when the world seems to have gone off the deep end, the “peace that passes understanding” is priceless. (Philippians 4:6)
Oh, we go through the same kinds of trouble everyone else does, but we can throw all those cares on God.
All of them.
Every single one of them.
I say, “we can” do that but it doesn’t always translate to us actually doing it.
As my Bible School teacher said frequently, “We carry burdens we were never meant to carry.”
Truer words have not been uttered about worry.
So, why do we hold onto them? Why do we think we can carry the load. I think the question that we don’t want to ask is, “Why don’t we trust those worries into God’s hands?””
Only you and I individually can answer that question.
Hurl those worries into His lap.
If it crops up again, do it tomorrow if you have to.
And the next day.
Get that peace we desperately need.
