Rest and Fret Not
Some of our most wasted time is spent fretting and stressing over things that are out of our control. We all go through circumstances and trials that can cause us to stress, worry, and bring our spirits down. In some cases, people stress too much over what is out of their control that they lose focus of God and stop praying, reading their Bibles, and attending church. Stress can destroy a Christian's growth and weaken their faith. Everyone has problems in their lives, but God doesn't want us to worry about the problems. Our focus should never be on the problem, but on the One who can solve the problem. The psalmist says in this verse to rest in the Lord. Bring your burdens to Him, and leave them in His control. He has the right solutions to our problems. Don't cause yourself to stress, worry, and fret over what God can help and deliver you from. Have patience during the troubling times knowing that nothing is out of God's control when it's out of your control. So, whatever you may have on your mind today that is bothering you, trust God, cast those burdens at His feet, and rest in Him because He cares for you.
Rest in the LORD, and wait patiently for him: fret not thyself because of him who prospereth in his way, because of the man who bringeth wicked devices to pass.
Psalm 37:7 (KJV)
