Here is Day Two of our current devotion series and if you have missed Day One – No reason to fret – you can find it here: Faith Over Fear: Season One // Day One
Each day you are bombarded with the cares of life. You try to manage your family, household, career, extracurricular activities, and your friends; but it all takes a toll on you.
You are giving all your physical energy and your mind into worldly cares that are zapping all your energy, your joy, and your love for life. You are always running to and from in a frazzled state of mind waiting for something to go wrong or having to dodge everything life keeps throwing at you. It won’t be long until you reach your next breaking point.
This is not the life God intended for us to live. He desires for us to live in peace and reassurance in all things, but the only way we can do that is by putting him first in each of these things. He seeks us early in the morning because he knows the demands of life will be too much for us to bare alone and he cares.
Choose him over being anxious about the things that are piling up on your to-do list. By choosing him, you allow him to refresh every part of your being before you start the things that once burdened you. This is the key to enjoying the chaos of your life.
Isaiah 40:31 but those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.
1 Peter 5:7 Casting all your anxieties on him, because he cares for you.
Proverbs 3:6 In everything you do, put God first, and he will direct you and crown your efforts with success.
Heavenly Father, I come to you, seeking you in the midst of my chaos. I am burdened with the needs that need to be met and I am unable to enjoy life as I am overcome with anxiety. I give all my worries to you LORD. Thank you and caring for me so much that you would take all my cares, burdens, and anxieties from me so that I may live my life for your glory. In Jesus’ Name, I pray, Amen.
What are you being lead to leave at the feet of Jesus today? Talk to Jesus about it, leave it, and find joy in his presence. He has all of your cares and burdens already mapped out for your best life. Believe it!
