If you know how to worry, then you know how to meditate.Apostle Gabriel Cross, from Pure Glory
Brother Gabriel makes a valid point. Both worry and prayer involve fixating our thoughts. So why not focus on something productive?
Worry often involves more stewing than doing. Yet prayer is doing at the highest level—even if it’s from our knees. I love how Young’s Literal Translation describes this:
Cast on Jehovah that which He hath given thee, and He doth sustain thee. He doth not suffer forever the moving of the righteous.Psalm 55:22 (YLT)
If we truly believe God causes all things to work for the good of those who love Him (Romans 8:28), then our issues are His issues. So give them back to Him, silly! (That was me talking to myself 😇).
This past January marked my forty-fifth year being friends with God. And I can confidently say, along with King David, “I’ve never seen the righteous forsaken.” — Psalm 37:25 (NIV)
Kind reader, thank you for stopping by today. 🙏❤️ prayers and love.
