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.
- Jeremiah 29:11-14a - "For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the ", “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.
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.
