Scripture For Today:
“Let a righteous man strike me—that is a kindness; let him rebuke me—that is oil on my head. My head will not refuse it, for my prayer will still be against the deeds of evildoers.”
Refuse to Worry pt 2
We have been studying what the Apostle Paul has taught us concerning having the Peace of God operating in our lives. Yesterday, we learned from Philippians 4:6 that we should not have a care in the world that concerns us. Amen!
We can read this as well in 1 Peter 5:7 which reads:
“Casting all your care upon Him, for He cares for you!”
How do we cast our cares over on the Lord? Well, as far as I know, there is only ONE WAY and His Name is Jesus! Amen! The only way to do that is through PRAYER.
I know the word “prayer” in not mentioned in that verse, but there is no other way to interpret the verse unless you are focused on prayer to do so.
What are you going to do about anxieties and all the things you continually worry about? You have to do something with them. Why not just “cast them upon the Lord?” Amen!
Let’s read that verse again in 1 Peter 5:7: “Casting all your care upon Him, for He cares for you!”
And in Philippians 4:6 again, we read, “Be careful for nothing; but in everything BY PRAYER and supplication with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God…”
Does this verse say to let your requests be known to God in the little things? YES. Even in the little things. YES, even in the big things. In the sort of middle things, too. It says IN EVERYTHING! AMEN!
I’ve heard some people say something to the effect of, “Well, I couldn’t bother God with these little cares and such. He’s too busy for that. I’ll just have to handle this myself.”
But God doesn’t want YOU to fret or be anxious about ANYTHING. That’s why He said “But in EVERYTHING – by prayer and supplication with Thanksgiving, make your requests known to God!” How much plainer does He have to say it?
