Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you. I Peter 5:7
“I found it in the last place I looked for it!”
Have you ever heard yourself say that? I have. But when you think about it, what a silly thing to say. I mean, once you have found what you were looking for, would you really keep looking? We’ve all misplaced something and have racked our brains and ransacked our homes looking for it. Sometimes the search took days … maybe even weeks, but when we finally found it, that was the end of our search.
And yet, when we are anxious about something and we take it to God who holds all the answers, why do we sometimes continue to attempt solving the problem ourselves? David assured us (Psalm 46:1) that God is our ‘refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble’. So, why would we look any further for assistance?
Whether it’s misplaced car keys or a serious crisis, God knows all about it. Call on Him and take Him at His word today!
Prayer Focus: Jesus, when I am looking for the answers to my problems, I know that You already hold the answers in Your hands. Let me look no further than You for the help that I need.
