We serve such an AWESOME God. He is mighty and so powerful that the mountains will crumble or move at the sound of his voice, yet we don’t trust him with our day to day problems. Just look at the earth he created and you don’t think he can handle your finances? Look at nature and the wildlife that not only he created but provides food and water for every day and you don’t think he can provide for you? Look at the human body that he created, that man has been studying for years and still can’t explain how it all works but you don’t think he can handle your marriage or other relationships in your life? Now as you read this, you will say “Yes, of course I do” but do you really?
As I began to think about this I realized the answer for most of us is No. You see, if we truly trusted God with these things we would not stress or worry over these things. We would truly give these things to God and not continue to take them back from him. We say “God I am giving this to you because I don’t know what else to do” and a few minutes after that prayer we are worrying about it again. That is not truly giving it to God. We have more trust and faith in a new car than we do in God. When you get in that new car you don’t stop every 10 feet get out, walk around the car, get all anxious and worried thinking am I going to make it to my destination. No, you sit back and relax trusting that car is going to get you to your destination. You can’t see your destination from where you are but you have faith in that car that it will get you to your destination. This is how we should be with God. When we give things to God, we should sit back and relax, knowing he’s got this.
A Chiropractor told me a couple of years ago that 90% of the back and neck pain he saw had nothing to do with physical injury or disease. He said the body was not designed to carry the weight of the world on its shoulders. I was there to see him for this very thing, back pain. I wasn’t saved then and I didn’t want to talk about it with him because I had a feeling it had to do with God and I wasn’t interested but that comment has remained in my mind. After I was saved, I realized God didn’t create our bodies to carry the weight of the world on our shoulders because he planned to carry that weight for us.
Let’s pray today and ask God to forgive us for not trusting him to carry our weight. There is nothing he can’t handle and as Christians we know this but we tend to try and hold onto things, when all we have to do is say God I give this to you. Let’s give it all to God today. I promise you he can handle it so much better than we ever could. Let’s start truly trusting him today.
I hope each of you have a great day in Jesus Christ.
