“Do you pray about it as much as you talk about it?”
What a thought? Sit and try to think about that for a second. Is there a situation that is coming to your mind? It could be small, big, insignificant or completely life changing. I know for me personally, that makes me stop and think BIG time. Because we’re humans and sometimes we don’t think about giving our problems to God, we just try and work them out on our own. Worrying is sometimes just part of our nature. But, worrying will NEVER change the outcome.
The Bible talks A LOT about worrying. “Cast all your anxieties on HIM because He cares about you..” -1 Peter 5:7. “Don’t worry about anything; instead, PRAY about everything. Tell God your needs and don’t forget to thank him for his answers…”
-Philippians 4:6. Reading verses like that just remind me that I can’t do it alone and that we don’t have too!!!
God takes care of that for us!! It also made me realize that I can’t fight any of these battles or problems without Him. If we are being completely honest just need to realize that we are screwed up and we can’t do life or anything without God’s help. That is something that is extremely hard to grasp. Because we sometimes think we are super humans who can do everything. We don’t have any super powers but, we do have prayer. But, the power of prayer is STRONG. The power of prayer is incredibly incredibly strong. I’ve seen prayer CHANGE people’s lives. I’ve seen it work in so many different situations. I’ve seen is definitely work in my life. Prayer takes away worry, pain, confusion, concern, anger. Pray about it more than you talk about it. God can handle it.
