Believe the Truth - Talk to Him

This quote from Joyce Meyer is true - if you care about, or are concerned about something, God cares about it, so you are able to talk with Him about whatever it is. Whether it is something about someone you love or something you are concerned about for yourself; God cares. This is the truth.

It is far, far too easy for us to be sidetracked by things which are not true; after all, Satan is the father of lies, so lying is something which he is very accomplished at doing. He lies to you a lot. For example . . . 
  • He tells you the people/thing about which you are concerned are much too small to "bother" God with as He is far too busy with much more important things. You believe him and keep it to yourself . . . which often means you end up carrying a heavy burden you do not need to carry.
  • He tells you the people/thing about which you are concerned are too big to bring to God; why would you possibly think God could, or would, do anything about this thing? You believe him and keep it to yourself . . . which often means you end up carrying a heavy burden you do not need to carry.
These are lies, but sadly we far too often listen to them, and believe them. If we are going to have a life of walking with God and the joy which comes with it, as we are model it to those we love, we must not listen to or believe these lies. We must believe the truth and the truth is . . .
  • Jeremiah 29:11-14a - "For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Then you will call on me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart. I will be found by you,” declares the Lord."
God wants us to call upon Him, come and pray to Him and when we do, He promises He will listen to us. When we seek Him with all our heart; He promises we will find Him. This is the truth - hold to it, tightly!

So, whatever is on your heart today; whoever your heart is breaking over, whatever leaves you feeling concern when you think about, the whoevers and whatevers in your life - they are the same whoevers and whatevers God cares about. He cares about everything and everyone you care about, so if you have not talked to Him about them, talk to Him. He is waiting to hear from you. If you have, continue to talk to Him.

Model to the ones you love what it looks like to be someone who does not believe the lies of the Devil. Model what it looks like to be someone who knows and believes the truth. Talk to Him.
