Verse Of The Day : Throw all your worry on him, because he cares for you. 1 Peter 5 : 7
LISTEN : When faced with trials and difficult situations you may be tempted to ask, “Does God truly care about me? If He cares, why are my problems not fixed? If He cares, why has things not changed?” (Judges 6 : 12, 13). Beloved, God truly cares about you. No matter how miserable, frustrated, heartbroken and depressed you may be, God is still faithful and truly cares for you. (Deuteronomy 31 : 6 – 8 ; Psalms 37 : 28 ; 94 : 14). The faithfulness of God is for all generations. Therefore, always trust His faithfulness and He will crush your worries under His feet. Do not allow the devil deceive you to believe the lies that God does not care about what you go through, and will never care. Our verse of the day says, ” Throw all your worry on him, because he cares for you. (1 Peter 5 : 7). Beloved, because God created and gives us life daily, let him also take care of all the things that we are worried about. Why should I doubt God’s ability to meet my needs, fix my problems and better my life when I know He created me with no mistakes? Beloved, God cares about you as much as He cares about me. So, if I know God cares about me, what should I do? I should have faith in Him, quit worrying myself, trust His promises, determine never to give up on Him, refuse to fear or faint in the face of troubles, and wait patiently for Him. Friend, why worry when you have God to lean on? Why destroy your life when God has offered to help? Henceforth, throw all your worry on him, because he cares for you. Be wise!
