In Jesus’ Name, all powerful, all knowing, everywhere present, unchanging, and merciful Heavenly Father, I thank You that I can bring all my anxieties and burdens to You to be resolved. Psalm 37:3-4 “Trust in the LORD and do good; dwell in the land, and feed on His faithfulness. Delight yourself also in the LORD, and He shall give you the desires of your heart.”
Direct me to understand and use the instructions in Your Word (the Bible) on to how to deal with the problems and burdens that life presents. Teach me when I am weak to let go and give my situations to You, who is strong and powerful. Show me how this means letting go and letting God, which is a moment-by-moment choice that needs to be my daily lifestyle. Isaiah 41:10 “Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, yes, I will help you, I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.”
Make me aware of any burdens that I am carrying from the past that I can do nothing about, or potential problems in the future that I am dwelling on now. These things only take away from my ability to focus on Your goodness. Give me the strength and wisdom to transfer ownership of my burdens from myself to You. As the hymn Burdens Lifted at Calvary says, remind me to “cast Your care on Jesus today, leave your worry and fear; burdens are lifted at Calvary, Jesus is very near.”
It is a great blessing in the difficult and uncertain times we are living in to know and rest in what You express in Lamentations 3:22-23. “Through the LORD’s mercies we are not consumed, because His compassions fail not. They are new every morning; great is Your faithfulness.”
In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
