Worry

A necessary portion of prayer…

“Give God Your Worries”

“When I kept things to myself, I felt weak deep inside me.” – Psalm 32:3

“Ask yourself two questions: Is there any unconfessed sin in my life? Confession is telling God you did the thing he saw you do. He doesn’t need to hear it as much as you need to say it. Whether it’s too small to be mentioned or too big to be forgiven isn’t yours to decide. Your task is to be honest … Are there any unsurrendered worries in my heart? “Give all your worries to him, because he cares about you” (1 Peter 5:7). The German word for worry means “to strangle.” The Greek word means “to divide the mind.” Both are accurate. Worry is a noose on the neck and a distraction of the mind, neither of which is befitting for joy.”

From devotions this morning, in “Grace for the Moment” by Max Lucado, is this reminder that the ‘size’ of your confession isn’t up to you. The magnitude of your concerns will never be greater than His ability to carry them for you.
