“And now just as you trusted Christ to save you, trust him, too, for each day’s problems; live in vital union with him. Let your roots grow down into him and draw up nourishment from him. See that you go on growing in the Lord”. -Colossians 2:6-7
Fear, or stress as it is better known these days, is signed off as a danger zone by God Himself. He tells us in Philippians 4:6 not to be anxious about anything. He highlights this by saying that we should trust Jesus for our everyday problems.
Why should we cast our cares onto Jesus and not just work them out on our own? Most of today’s stresses come from trying to cope with impossibility and these are things that Jesus triumphs in. Our greatest breakthroughs come when we’ve conquered our greatest battles. A teabag is only worth something when it’s been through hot water.
Take action: If you are experiencing some tough moments in your life right now – cast your care onto Jesus and let Him show you the light at the end of your tunnel.
