Give It To Jesus

Posted on - in Encouragement

“Therefore humble yourselves under the mighty hand hand of God, that He may exalt you in due time, casting all your cares upon Him, for He cares for you.”

1 Peter 5:6-7

Faith tells us, not how it is, but how it’s going to be. It’s always better later, so much so we have to get pass the thorns to smell the roses. A band aid fixes fixes no wound, it only covers it up. Humpty Dumpty could not be mended because he went to the King’s men, instead of going to the King. These days and times, the rain beats our houses with pain, hurt, depression, anger, addiction, lost, pride, guilt, broken heart, struggles, hate, betrayal, confusion, worries, inflation, and fear, which often can silence us and make us forget Who is on the throne and reigns over everything. As it is written, “God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.” But who are we running or talking to? Mother Teresa, said it best, “My secret is simple, I pray.” We have to bring it all to Jesus as the opening Scripture tells us.

Praying is simply talking with God about everything. Jesus will always gives us beauty for ashes, if we bring it all to Him. I am convinced that caterpillars goes off the grid to be alone with Jesus in conversation, and the reward is being transformed into the beauty of a butterfly. Giving it to Jesus, is simply showing life and death who’s in you, as it is written, “According to my earnest expectation and hope that in nothing I will be put to shame, but with all boldness, as always, even now Christ will be magnified in my body, whether through life or through death.” I always find myself at ease after giving it all to Jesus. As it is written, “You will show me the path of life; In your presence is fullness of joy; At Your right hand are pleasures forevermore.”

A gift is not a gift unless it remains in the present

Let’s let go of all our fears, worries, stress, burdens and all that which concerns us, by giving it all to Him through prayer. If we are going to pray about it, then let us not worry about it, as it is written, “Leave the bull at the altar.” The Love that Jesus has for us is everlasting and we have a friend in Him. No matter what the situation is, we can tell Him. As it is written, “Come now, and let us reason together, says the Lord. Though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be white as snow; Though they are red like crimson, they shall be as wool.” We serve a God of relationship. God shows no favoritism, and no matter who you are or aren’t, God loves you and wants to hear from you.
