How many times do we have to hear it before we finally realize that GOD WILL TAKE CARE OF US! It’s repeated so often throughout the Bible- give your burdens/cares/struggles/yoke/etc. to the Lord and He will take care of you. Maybe, just maybe, this command is repeated so much because God wants us to believe it! And maybe He knows the kind of people we are, and that sometimes it takes a whole lot of repetition for His words to not only stick in our thick skulls, but for us to actually act on it.
Don’t give up.
Don’t give in.
Don’t forget who’s really in control. (Hint: It’s not you.)
Need some more proof that God really is on your side? That He cares for you? Check out a few of these verses:
1 Peter 5:6-7
Casting all your anxieties on him, because he cares for you.
Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.
Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.
Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
I have said these things to you, that in me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation. But take heart; I have overcome the world.
…and about a bazillion other verses!
God’s got this!
