This week is based on the “Struggle of Anxiousness” sermon from the Saints & Struggles series. We are focusing on how God helps us in the midst of struggles. Slow down, read the text, and then let it read you…
“So humble yourselves under the mighty power of God, and at the right time he will lift you up in honor. Give all your worries and cares to God, for he cares about you.”
1 Peter 5:6-7 (NLT)
Slow down and read the passage again. Sometimes it’s not a matter of trust, but whether or not we believe God cares for us. There is nothing more certain in all of Scripture than God’s love for us. Whether we feel like we deserve it or not, God cares for us deeply. That’s why prayer is so important to anxiety, because it invites God into our struggles. Is it sometimes difficult for you to bring your worry/anxiousness to God? Why or why not? Spend the next few minutes bringing the worry and anxiety weighing you down before God in prayer.
