If I asked you what you ponder most, what keeps you up at night, what would you say? Your marriage, kids, job, health, finances, education? Scriptures tells me that there is a better way than worry. It is trust.
“Commit your way to the Lord [roll and repose each care of your load on Him]; trust (lean on, rely on, and be confident) also in Him and He will bring it to pass.”
Psalm 37:5 AMPC
Repose here means to lay something to rest on. To unload your cares on God. Committing everything to God in prayer.
Trust means just what this verse says: to lean on, rely on and be confident in God because “He is before all things, and in him all things hold together.” Colossians 1:17 NIV
“Trust him and he will help you.” Psalm 37:5
Trust brings help.
“But blessed is the one who trusts in the Lord, whose confidence is in him.”
Jeremiah 17:7 NIV
Trust brings blessing.
“You will keep in perfect peace those whose minds are steadfast, because they trust in you.” Isaiah 26:3 NIV
Trust brings peace.
Therefore, “I will trust, and will not be afraid; for the Lord God is my strength and my song, and he has become my salvation.””
Keep unloading that worry bus at the feet of Jesus. And begin to trust and rest in Him instead.
