Win the War Against Worry This Holiday Season – 1 Peter 5

The holiday season is often stressful.

Shopping, travel, and time with people (you may or may not get along with) can be stressful. In the season for “peace on earth” many people are plagued with worry.

Worrying is like running on a treadmill. It takes a lot of energy but you don’t get anywhere. Tweet This

When we worry, we are basically telling God that we don’t trust him. In one simple sentence Peter tells us what we should do with our worries and cares.

“Give all your worries and cares to God, for he cares about you.” 1 Peter 5:7  

God cares, so give him your cares! Tweet This

When we give God our worries we release control of our lives. Giving your worries to God is a way telling Him, “Hey looks like you have got a problem down here!”

Some of us are worried about giving God our worries, but God is more than capable of handling all of your problems way better than you ever could

If you trust him with you future, he will take care of everything. So next time you are overcome by the problems of life…

Don’t worry, trust god!
