PRAYER: Dear Father in Heaven, I turn my life over to YOU, casting out my anxieties and worries, in Jesus Name!
WHY PRAY THIS?: Luke 12:27-31 says “Consider how the wild flowers grow. They do not labor or spin. Yet I tell you, not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these. If that is how GOD clothes the grass of the field, which is here today, and tomorrow is thrown into the fire, how much more will he clothe you—you of little faith! And do not set your heart on what you will eat or drink; do not worry about it. For the pagan world runs after all such things, and your FATHER knows that you need them. But seek HIS kingdom, and these things will be given to you as well.”
Many of us rely on our own power, instead of the power of GOD. Instead of going to the ONE who is truly all-powerful and all-loving, we hold back. For some reasons, Maybe we won’t be accepted. We are imperfect and weak. Some said “Why would God love me?” Many of us who are sanctified even stayed back, instead of opening our lives up to GOD, we merely lean on our own understanding, limitation, gifts, and power. Then we ask: why haven’t I grown in holiness? Why has my prayer not yielded much fruit?
NOTE: If GOD is truly all-knowing, all-powerful, and all-loving, doesn’t HE know better than you and me? So, to turn our lives over to HIM, we have to cast out anxiety and worry. Notice one of the most recurring themes in the Bible is to not worry and have no fear. In fact, I was made to realize that “if we seek GOD for HIS own sake, not just for what HE does for us, then we will be rewarded more than ever!” Peace be unto You!
