All-knowing heavenly Father, I come to You through the Name of Jesus to thank You for the promise in Your Word that You have full and total control of my life. You say in Jeremiah 29:11, ‘”For I know the plans I have for You,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future” (NIV). I know and trust that Your ways are perfect and so much more complete than my own. There are often things in my life that I don’t understand, yet I know that Your plan never fails or changes. You knew the path of my life before I was even born.
Because of these truths, I ask that You give me Your eyes and Your heart. Give me the peace to know that I can, “cast all [my] anxieties on [You] because [You] care for me” 1 Peter 5:7 (ESV).
Pause to give the Lord all Your anxieties and burdens.
I ask that the process of giving these burdens to You be a daily one and not just happen when all else has failed. With all the chaos and uncertainty in the world, thank you for the peace and comfort conveyed in the following quote: “I don’t know what the future holds, but I know Who holds the future” ~Anonymous.
I bring this all in the Name of Jesus, Amen.
