We will sometimes go through seasons where it seems like everything around us is breaking or falling apart. Car breaks down, things in the house break down, short on money to buy food, no money to buy clothes, more bills than income, spouse not acting right. Sometimes it all hits at the same time and when it does, it’s enough to make us feel so overwhelmed. What makes it even worse is when we believe these problems are small and insignificant in the eyes of God.
We think that because our problems are not related to winning souls by the thousands or making mountains move that God is not really concerned with it and feel we are left on our own to fix them, left on our own to figure it out. Let me tell you, EVERYTHING that concerns you, no matter how big or how small, concerns God. This is why he tells us “Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God”. And when he said “Anything” that is exactly what he meant-don’t be anxious about ANYTHING.
God is so concerned with you, that every hair on your head is numbered and he knows when one falls out. So if he cares about your hair, SURELY he cares about your problems. Even if you created the problem yourself with unwise choices or decision making, God is STILL faithful to help you and deliver you.
Over and over the children of Israel messed up, over and over they disobeyed God, yet when they cried out to God, he heard their cry and rescued them. The same it is for you. God WILL help you, God will deliver you, God will bring you out, God will fix it. This is just a season that you are going through but because you are a child of God IT WILL PASS.
Don’t let anything distract you from giving God the praise-not your car, not your house, not your bills, not your spouse-Anything, it will only hinder your growth in God. Things will get better, things will get fixed and with whatever you lose, God is FAITHFUL to restore. Don’t Be Anxious.
