January 16 | God Will Take Care of You

“Give all your worries to God, for he cares about you.” 1 Peter 5:7 

Think about the things you worried about last year, or even last week. How many came to pass? Statistically, 10% at most! Did all your worrying make them better or worse? Consider the physical and emotional toll of worry. Dr. Charles Mayo, founder of the famous Mayo Clinic, said, “Worry negatively affects the circulation, the heart, the glands, and the whole nervous system. It profoundly affects your health. I have never known a person who died from overwork, but many who died from worry.”

The Bible says, “Give all your worries and cares to God, for He cares about you” (1 Peter 5:7). By committing each day to the Lord, you are trusting Him to go before you and to work things out for your good. When worry comes to prey on your mind, attack it with the promises of God. Bring your fears to God and watch them shrivel and die. It’s wonderful what happens when Christ displaces worry at the center of your life (Philippians 4:7). George Muller said, “The beginning of anxiety is the end of faith, and the beginning of true faith is the end of anxiety.”

Consider: In your prayer time today, bring the Lord every fear that has been robbing life. Cast your cares upon Him because He cares about you.
