“Give all your worries and cares to God, for He cares about you.”
We forget this sometimes because life always doesn't go the way we want or think it should. But God cares so much He gave us His Son to bridge the gap to Him for eternity. Verse 8 goes on to say, “Stay alert! Watch out for your great enemy, the devil. He prowls around like a roaring lion, looking for someone to devour.” This is not our home, our great enemy is working on ways to keep us from believing the truth about God's love. What are we listening too? Because if we remember what God did for us and don't get caught up in the world perception we will continue to move towards Christ who will set us free.
Verse 10 is so incredible and something we should remind ourselves of all the time. “In His kindness God called you to share in His eternal glory by means of Christ Jesus. So after you have suffered a little while, He will restore, support, and strengthen you, and He will place you on a firm foundation.” When our faith is perfected by Jesus we grow and we see that no matter the situation God uses it for growth. Romans 8:28 says, “And we know that God causes everything to work together for the good of those who love God and are called according to His purpose for them.”
The devil has nothing on us unless we let this world control our thinking. We must renew our minds daily and work on seeing that God cares for us and wants a relationship with us. Stand firm in Him and whenever you feel tired pray and ask Him because He will give you rest, it is in His word. Matthew chapter 11 verse 28 says, “Then Jesus said, “Come to me, all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest.” Focus on Him and rejoice that we have eternal life because if Him. Amen
