Scripture of the Day:   

Philippians 4:6

“Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.”


Don’t Be Anxious About the Outcome

We’ve been talking these past few days about rolling your cares over on the Lord. He is more than able to handle your situation. Amen. No matter how bad it may seem to you – He is able to make it go away and deliver you from all your troubles. Glory to God!

When we roll our cares over on Him, we are demonstrating that we have Faith in His Word. Since Jesus IS the Word, we are demonstrating that we have Faith in Him. Amen!

A verse in Psalm 37 helps us to see what Peter was talking about in our verse of the day just a little more clearly. It says:

“Commit your way unto the Lord; trust also in Him; and He shall bring it to pass.”  AMEN!

The words “roll” or “cast” or “commit” are all the same root words which means to TRUST him. Amen. Isn’t that what the Bible is saying in these verses? To just TRUST HIM?

Notice God is not going to TAKE your cares away. It does not say that at all. YOU are going to have do something with them. You can either cling to them and hold onto them – and be completely responsible for them…or you can GIVE THEM TO HIM.

Some misguided people will ask me to pray that “God will help me get through this.” That is the wrong attitude to have. You should be praying that God will deliver you from this. Not get you through it. You should be praying that you are giving the care of this situation to God and then you thank Him (in advance) for the deliverance. 

If you insist on worrying about your situation, whatever it is, then you are telling God that He is not in charge – YOU ARE. And God will not TAKE anything from you. Not even your cares. 

Think of it like this… When you got born again, what did you say? In some form or fashion, if you truly asked Jesus to be your Savior, you probably said something to the effect, “Lord I give you my life.” Am I right?

What good will your sin filled life do for Jesus. NOTHING.

But, when you GAVE HIM your life – He became responsible for it. And the only way He could save you from your sinful self was to destroy that sinful person and then give you a NEW LIFE – a rebirth – a BORN AGAIN spirit that is the NEW YOU.

But it did not happen until what?

Until YOU gave HIM permission to do it! Glory to God! Don’t shout me down when I’m preaching good. Amen!

Is all of this starting to make sense now! I pray it is. I pray a light of revelation just switched on inside your spirit man. Glory to God.

I want to pray for you right now…Let’s pray that this new light of revelation will allow you to begin to walk with the Lord with no cares for this world, no cares about your life, no cares about whatever is plaguing you right now. Let’s pray for absolute deliverance from all of your cares and all of your troubles. Why? Because He says you can do that! Amen!

Let’s Pray!

Until next time, this is Pastor Bob Thibodeau reminding you from 1 Thessalonians 5:17 in the Living Bible to “Always Keep on Praying!”  Be blessed in all that you do!
