Lay it Down

I think God maybe trying to tell me something.  I meet with a couple women in two different meetings one day this week and the same word came from both of them.  The circumstances of why He told them this word was different but the impact was the same.

Basically:  When we continue to cry out to Him in anxiety over and over about the same thing or when our worry is overtaking our every thought.

He says to us, “I’ve got this! Stop worrying!”  and “You’ve lifted them up, now it’s time to lay them down!”

All we can do is Pray, Give it to Him and Trust He’s handling it.  Whether I’m praying for a friend, family, finances, whatever,  I tell Him about it and lay it down at His feet.   Man if I’d learned that a long time ago, there would have been a lot let sleepless nights.

So going back to God trying to tell me something.  I’m thinking, “have I been worrying?” about something specific.  Have I been talking to him over and over about a certain situation to the point of running out of words, hoping that the more I talk the quicker He’ll move?  I can say it with an emphatic “YES”!  I need to be okay just being okay and trusting that in His time it’ll all be good.  When I obsess about something, I usually act in hast and the outcome is never as good as it would be if I’d just trusted in His timing.

1 Peter 5:7 

Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you.

Philippians 4:6 

Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.

If you are reading this, I pray that you also will let this word speak to you.  Lift them up and then lay them down.  Whatever “them” are!

Lord I’m so grateful that you have given me Jesus and the Holy Spirit to help me walk through this life.  I ask you to help me to wait on You.  I ask you to give me a calm spirit.  I pray that I will remember these words that you have given me.  Amen!
