Pray: Dear God, there are various things weighing on our minds, today and every day. But instead of worrying, feeling fearful, and complaining, we are choosing to hand our concerns over to You. 1 Peter 5:7 is such a comforting verse, Lord. It reminds us to cast all our anxiety on You because You care for us. Thank You, Father, for this reminder. We cling to this today. And we thank You for caring for us. That statement alone brings us immeasurable peace, to know that the Creator of the universe cares for us. We are so thankful to know that You are there and that You are taking the weight of our anxieties. Reading stories in the Bible, such as the one with Daniel in the lions’ den, brings us comfort. We see that You will work miracles to protect us and rescue us. When we remember this story, it reminds us that we have nothing to worry about. Our amazing Father has our backs, no matter what we are facing. Our awesome God shuts the mouths of lions, parts the water, and protects us in the fires of life. Thank You, God, for Your amazing power and strength! We have nothing to worry about and nothing to fear! Thank You, Lord. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
Practice Gratitude: What are you grateful for today? I am grateful to know that the Lord cares for us. I am grateful to know that God will protect us and rescue us, even by shutting the mouths of lions. And I am grateful to know that our heavenly Father always has our backs.
