Read 1 Peter 5

Give all your worries and cares to God, for He cares about you. 1 Peter 5:7 NLT

Observation
How crazy is it to think that the the Creator of everything loves us and cares about us so much that He wants us to give Him all of our worries and cares. He wants it all; all of our fears, all of our stresses, everything that overwhelms us. He’s not burdened when we bring these things before Him, but He asks us to do it.

Application
As someone that personally worries about absolutely anything and everything, this scripture really speaks to me. This is a daily reminder that we need to constantly be carrying in our hearts. We can’t lose focus of what God has for us and what He’s doing in our lives, by getting sidetracked by our worries and fears. Give Him all your thoughts and cares and walk in freedom today and see how God uses you when you’re not bogged down with all the stress you’ve been carrying around.

Prayer
God, I just thank You that You care about us more than we could ever even imagine. God help us to seek You first before we let ourselves be consumed with worry and fear. Help us to stay focused on You and not lose sight of what Your word says.
