Why worry, after you pray?
You prayed right? You just let go and let God right? You just put everything in his hands right? You believe in him right? He have brought you through before right? He never forsaken you right? When others turned away, he was still there right? Then why are you still worried?
If you answered “yes” to all the above, then you my child know that he is real just as well as he is able. If you are worrying just after you turned it over to him then you have wasted your time. You can’t do both. If you’re going to worry, why pray?
When you place it in his hands, trust him. Believe before you pray, while you pray, and after you pray. It’s like giving someone something that you don’t want back, but in the back if your mind days later you wonder are they going to give it back. No, you gave it to them as in it’s yours now. You can have it. Here take it, no questions asked. So there’s no need to wonder what they are going to do with it or how they will deal with it. Right?
One thing I have learned about handing over my worries to God is that “I don’t care how he handles it, long as it is out of my hands.” Lol. Obviously it was too big and too much for me. So why not pass the test by giving it back to him, with trust that he will take care of it for you? He just want you to trust him instead of man or your own understanding. You will be greatly be rewarded just by trusting him instead of trying to do it on your own. Yes, its hard to not worry about it physically, but it is spiritually needed.
God gives his biggest battles to his strongest children. Meaning, he trust you to know what to do when you are encountered with afflictions. So why not trust him?
Thank him for those afflictions, trials, and struggles along the way. No one that seeks a closer relationship with him will have it easy. Stop complaining, grumbling, and murmuring, God hates its. He do not hear our complaints and worries. He wants you to call on him for help. Give it back to him, with a humbled heart for him to take care of it. The battle is not always yours. Let go, get out his way, and step aside. He got you. But you have to believe and pray more than you worry.
I come to you tonight with a humbled heart and opened mind. I have been worrying about something that only you have control over. I am sorry for standing in your way, instead of staying out of your way. As I kneel before you tonight Lord, I ask that you lift this burden up off me, for it is too much of a load for me to carry alone. I ask that you take it in your hands and have your way with it so that it will bring me closer to your victory in the end. I cannot do it by myself. And I will not do it by myself. I need you oh Lord. I want to pass this test and my future tests. But I need you to stay by my side the whole way through. Walk with, stay with me, and never leave me. In Jesus name I pray, Amen!
