Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done. (Philippians 4:6 NLT)
Let us imagine you have just received a letter and a cheque from the White House, and in that letter the President tells you “Don’t worry about anything; instead talk to me about everything. Tell me what you need and you would have it”.
How will this letter shape your thought life?
Are you going to continue worrying about things you need in your life?
How will you embrace this news?
I believe you are going to renew your mind, and start preparing your field to receive all the things you need from the White House. I can say that each time you have a need, you wouldn’t hesitate to call the President.
Let us consider the bigger picture now:
Your Father in Heaven is the Creator of the universe. The Scripture says “The earth is the L ord ’s, and everything in it.” (Psalms 24:1 NLT). He owns everything so He doesn’t want you to worry about the little things you need. Jesus said “Look at the birds. They don’t plant or harvest or store food in barns, for your heavenly Father feeds them.” Notice He used your Heavenly Father, not their Heavenly Father. He concluded by asking you this question; “aren’t you far more valuable to him than they are?”(Matthew 6:26 NLT).
Friend, God wants to hear from you. He wants you pray about everything, tell Him all you need and thank Him for all He has done.
“Keep on asking, and you will receive what you ask for. Keep on seeking, and you will find. Keep on knocking, and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks, receives. Everyone who seeks, finds. And to everyone who knocks, the door will be opened. (Matthew 7:7, 8 NLT)
Today is a new day and I want to encourage you to quit worrying and begin talking to God about everything. Everything means Everything; the big ones and the small ones, the funny ones and the bitter ones, etc. God wants to hear from you, He wants to have relationship with you.
One important thing I want you to know is that God isn’t only concerned about your needs…He wants to be part of your life. However, we often ignore this great privilege.
God bless you
