Give all your worries and cares to God, for he cares about you
(1 Peter 5:7, NLT)
God desires to take care of whatever may be concerning you today. He invites you to give your worries and cares to Him simply because He loves you!
How do you give Him your cares? First of all, understand that cares show up in your mind. When negative, self-defeating thoughts of worry come, you have to recognize them as cares and replace them with the Word of God. For example, if you are concerned about a need today, say out loud, My God shall supply all my needs according to His riches in glory. If you have fear about something, say out loud, God has not given me a spirit of fear, but of power, love and a sound mind. If you have sickness in your body, declare, By His stripes I am healed. As you meditate on the truth and focus your heart and mind on the Father, those cares and concerns will disappear.
Then, thank Him for giving you peace and joy. Thank Him for working in your life. As you keep an attitude of faith and expectancy, give Him your worries and cares and get ready for the blessing He has for your future!
A PRAYER FOR TODAY
Father in heaven, I come to You today casting my cares on You. I choose to believe Your Word and trust that You are working behind the scenes on my behalf. I give You all the praise and glory in Jesus name. Amen.

How many are my iniquities and sins?
Make known to me my rebellion and my sin.
Lord, You know that the human heart is rebellious. You are fully aware that this is a fallen world. We see evidence of it before our very eyes on every evening news broadcast. We witness again and again the ugly realities of stubbornness and resistance and selfishness. We not only watch the flesh battle the flesh, we're engaged in the battle ourselves! Our Father, please give Your people the ability to survive these difficult times.
I pray, Lord, that our fallen condition will not cause us to compromise our convictions in the delicate days of the future. May we stand on tiptoe, like the ancient Hebrews in Exodus 19, who heard the horn as it blew and saw the smoke and the cloud and the lightning that flashed on Sinai and realized that You are to be taken seriously. Find in us hearts willing to do that. Give us an unselfish generosity---great heartedness---in the process of transitioning us from the way we were to the place we will be.
Lord, may we trust You completely. Just as Moses trusted You to get the Hebrews out of Egypt, so we trust You to get us into the promised land, bringing us safely to the other side of death, through bodily resurrection and on to new life in a new creation. Go before us, Lord, stay behind us, and surround us with what we need to overcome our rebellion. Give us a sense of peace and confidence that You are in the lead, not us. And cause us to trust You completely as we walk sensitively and humbly with our God through the days before us. We ask it in Jesus's name. Amen.
