It’s All About God
I Peter 5:6-7
Now why would God bother to tell us to cast all our anxieties on HIM? Well, because we have a problem that way.
American Institute of Stress notes that “75 to 90 percent of all visits to a primary care physician’s office are related to stress disorders.”
Did you realize that NOT ONCE does the Bible say, “Worry about it” or “Stress over it” or even “Get over it.” But over and over again, Scripture clearly says: “Trust God.”
Now, we need to be clear here: God doesn’t promise that the causes of our anxiety will disappear. He just promises that (when we look to Him) our anxiety will disappear.
So sometimes God doesn’t put out the fire. Sometimes He doesn’t remove the cause of our anxiety…but then, sometimes He does.
There’s an old saying “Let God be your co-pilot!” which others have corrected to say, “If God is your co-pilot, switch seats.”
So, the question this morning is: Is the Father in control of your life, or are you still trying to be in charge…you just let Him assist you?
