“Will I be able to do this? It doesn’t seem possible. I don’t want to fail. I just need to rely on God. But why do I feel so anxious? Shouldn’t I feel his peace?”…
Are all thoughts that have crossed my mind tonight. I laid down hours ago but worry and fear of failure seemed to keep me awake.
But, Holy Spirit ever so gently brought this scripture to my remembrance.
“There is no risk of failure with God. Why should I let worries paralyze me?”
We sometimes forget who has chosen us and how he saves us every single time, no matter the circumstance. He is our refuge, our great strength, and will always meet our weakness with his strength.
Why would I worry when God is in control and is working everything out for my good?
Why would I worry when God is for me? Who could be against me?
Why would I worry when he says I am more than a conqueror and victorious?
For those of you dealing with worry tonight, rest in his love.
Rest in the fact that there is nothing God won’t do for you that is for your good.
There is no such thing as failure with God, because even if we stumble he upholds us with his right hand.
Tonight I thank God for being the only one who is truly steadfast. He is always awake and always willing to listen and speak what I need most. He is gentle, kind, and so patient. He is my strength, my help, and my peace.
