Week 12 entry
1 Peter 5:7
“Cast all your anxiety on Him because He cares for you.”
“Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.”
Worries and fears—they show lack of faith, confidence and strength to trust in what God can do. Therefore worrying is a sin. Others may see it as natural, but the Bible tells us not to worry and to always put our trust in God in everything we do. Faith means trusting God, even when everything in the world doesn’t make sense. We have to keep and deepen the faith we have to prevent worrying. We should always remember that we have a God bigger than our problems, and we’re in deep trouble if we think otherwise.
CAST IT OUT. Surrender your worries and your whole self to God.
“Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see.”
Two good devo points:
We can be confident that God’s actions toward us are always perfect and just
“…but understand what the Lord’s will is.”
God, as to His perfect holiness, is right and just. He knows what’s for our own good, even if things aren’t going well for us. We may not understand it when problems and troubles go one by one, but we always have to trust God’s will. Ask God to fill you with the Holy Spirit and that may He reveal to you His perfect and wonderful will.
We are all unworthy of salvation. We were all born with a sinful nature. If it weren’t for God’s love and grace which poured out during the atoning work of Christ on the cross, we would experience no forgiveness nor salvation. But thanks be to God for His love that He gave His one and only Son, Jesus, who emptied the cup of God’s wrath and paid the penalty of our sin 2 millenia ago.
