Give Your Worries to God


What is "daily bread"? It is the necessities of life -- our physical and material needs that we're always worrying about. God wants you to ask him to provide those things so you don't have to worry about them. What do you need today? Energy to make it through the day? Finances? Wisdom? You've got two alternatives: panic or pray. Philippians 4:6 says: "Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God." God says you can pray about everything. Nothing is too great for God's power. Nothing is too insignificant for His care. Anything worth worrying about is worth praying about. If we prayed as much as we worried, we'd have a lot less to worry about! Give God your worries. Then you need to be specific. When you pray generically - "God, bless me" -- how are you going to know if He answered it or not? Notice the Philippian verse also says, " by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving." When you pray, be specific and do it with thanksgiving. Gratitude is the healthiest emotion you can have, psychologists say. The more you develop an attitude of appreciation for God, your family, and other people, the healthier you are emotionally.


“Give us this day our daily bread.”

‭‭Matthew‬ ‭6:11‬ ‭KJV‬‬
