Lord I don’t want to be anxious about anything, knowing that I can cast all of my anxious thoughts on You - but how difficult I find it to cast all my care on You, before I start to worry – what often happens is that I become more and more anxious over all the difficulties of life that are crowding in on me … and eventually I turn my thoughts to You and reach out to You in my helplessness.
Lord, in my understanding of Who You are I KNOW that You always are my Rock in times of troubles and over and again I have seen You help in time of need… but very rarely do You act in the way that I expect!!
Lord I know that I am not to be anxious about the provision of life and the needs of the home - nor am I to fret over the actions and attitudes of evildoers, who seem to encompass me on every side, for I KNOW and BELIEVE that the day is coming when evildoers will wither away like the grass of the field, as Your Word teaches - while those that trust in the Lord will dwell securely, under the shadow of Your wings.
Help me Lord to cast my anxious thoughts on You BEFORE I start to fret. Help me to reach out to You in my helplessness BEFORE I try to sort things out myself – for You have promised to be my help in time of trouble – Thank You for being such a faithful God,
“Search me, O God, and know my heart: try me, and know my thoughts:”
“Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you.”
