Do your worry a lot about your safety? Are you afraid of what people think of you? Do you read about the possible side effects of your medications and then become convinced that your feel every one? It is normal for active minds to go the way of “what if something bad happens,” but before these thoughts gain too much influence, it is vital to turn them over to God. Replace the fear for harm with faith in him.
Placing your trust in God completely will change your life and your thinking. Even everyday concerns will be cast in a new light. Nothing can hurt the heart that is held in God’s hands.
Building up our belief system can require that we build up immunities on a spiritual level. As we are exposed to tests of faith, to trails, and to rocky days, we are developing stronger spiritual responses. We learn when we take our comfort in God, and we gain knowledge when we seek guidance in his Word.
If we respond to situations out of an absolute trust in God, eventually our attitudes and belief with follow . Our reliance on God becomes second nature as we relinquish our human nature and take on a new identity in Christ.
Dear Lord, I trust you. I trust you. I entrust my life to you. I give you my thoughts, actions, worries, and preoccupation with image. Things do and can go wrong. Help me not beckon them with added worry, but actually release them from my thoughts. Fill my mind with your promises. Lord, I’m facing a new day with new possibilities. God, help me react to each situation, person, decision, and opportunity with complete faith. I want to walk in goodness and righteousness. May the longings of my heart begin to take on the shape of your will for my life. Give me clarity so that my first response come from a pure desire to please you.
In Jesus name I pray
Trust in the Lord and do good; dwell in the land and enjoy safe pasture. Delight yourself in the Lord and he will give you the desires of your heart.
Psalm 37: 3-4
