“Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you.” 1 Peter 5:7 NIV
I am a worrier and I am exceptional at it. I can worry with the best of them. I didn’t think anything was wrong with worrying, until it started to take over my life. I couldn’t go a day without worrying. I even based my decisions on my worries.
What I didn’t realize was that by worrying I was telling God that I didn’t trust Him and I believed that I could handle things on my own. How could I not trust the One who has provided for me better than I could ever imagine? What on earth made me think that I could handle things better than the Creator of the universe? Worrying was a burden that I was never meant to bear.
It’s time to step out of the role of worrier and into the role God actually meant for me to be in, the role of a conqueror. When worries come it’s not my job to hold them inside. It’s my job to turn them over to God, the Lord Almighty. I can’t do this alone. I need the One, who through Him, all things are possible. It’s time to kick the habit of worrying.
“With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.” Matthew 19:26 NIV
