Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.

God is Faithful

1 Peter 5:7 (NLT)      ”Give all your worries and cares to God, for he cares about you.”

 Psalm 55:22 (NLT)     ”Give your burdens to the LORD, and he will take care of you…..”

Father as I meditate on these two verses I am well aware that the worries and burdens of life are a fierce combination. One is interior (worry) and the others is exterior (burdens) and together they create a fearful disposition of dysfunction and defeat. Humanly speaking it is impossible to overcome them. We may ignore them, deny them, or try to bear up courageously against their assault. But the reality of their combined affect will ultimately be apparent.

“However”, what a beautiful word.  Father, You make all the difference in the world. And as we trust You with our worries and burdens you give us the assurance and strength to not only endure but also succeed.

We are mindful of your promise: ”The temptations in your life are no different from what others experience. And God is faithful. He will not allow the temptation to be more than you can stand. When you are tempted, he will show you a way out so that you can endure”. 1 Corinthians 10:13 (NLT)

Father the way you have shown us to deal with our worries and burdens is to simply trust your faithfulness. “God will do this, for he is faithful to do what he says……” 1 Corinthians 1:9 (NLT)

Thank You Father because in the words of that great chorus we also can sing:

Great is Thy faithfulness
Great is Thy faithfulness
Morning by morning new mercies I see
All I have needed Thy hand hath provided
Great is Thy faithfulness
Lord unto me

Thank you Father, in Jesus Name.
