He Cares for You

Description

God never meant for you to carry the weight of your life. Instead, He says to bring your burdens to Him so that He can carry them for you.

Lamentations 5:1

"Remember, O LORD, what has come upon us; Look, and behold our reproach!" NKJV

Prayer is something often spoken about in church, and yet it is seldom practiced on a regular basis. Some of this may be due to the misunderstanding of what prayer is and what it is not. When we come to the Lord in prayer, He desires that we come as the broken people we are. He desires that we bring our cares, our worries, our pains and our suffering to Him because He loves us.

1 Peter 5:6-7: "So humble yourselves under the mighty power of God, and at the right time he will lift you up in honor. Give all your worries and cares to God, for he cares about you." NLT

We don't need to pretend with God. He knows our hearts and understands our weaknesses. When we come in honest conversation with Him, we can find peace and joy in that time of fellowship. God never meant for you to carry the weight of your life. It's too much for any of us. Instead, He says to bring it to Him so that He can carry it for us. So when we come in prayer, we can come in joyful surrender knowing that God loves us and that He has our life in His hands.

Life Lesson: When the burdens of life overwhelm you, take them to God in prayer.

Dear God,
Thank You for the blessing of prayer. I come to You with nothing but empty hands and a heart that desires more of You. Please Lord, take my life and do with it as you please. I trust You and desire to glorify Your name in all that I do. In Jesus' name, Amen.
