Every time we start to feel burdened/anxious/overwhelmed, it is usually because we have not 'given' God our worries and fears. Or if we have, we may have taken those things back into our control subconsciously.
We tend to do it without realising it, and that often leads us to feelings of heaviness, because He has never designed for us to take on what He has promised to take care of.
So how do we overcome this? Read on!
Give your burdens to the Lord, and He will take care of you.
– Psalm 55:22
Once you have given something to God, leave it there. Trust that He will take care of what He has promised to take care of. He cares and loves you so much, and we pray that you will have a true revelation of His great love for you. ◡̈
Take a piece of paper and list down all the promises of God that you can recall.
Remembering His promises will also provide you with a tremendous amount of peace. Keep diving deep into the Word of God, and find out more of His promises each day. ◡̈
Recognise that He has promised to take care of you, guide you, and provide for you. Release your worries, cares and fears to Him! ◡̈
If you often find yourself worrying about the same thing, tell yourself this:
"I refuse to worry about this (fill in the blanks with what you are worried about) anymore, because God is taking care of it!"
Philippians 4:19 has assured us that God will provide for all our needs. Place your trust in Him, and His peace that surpasses all understanding will flood your mind (Philippians 4:7).
