We fear things that we have no control over. We are anxious about things that we don’t know the result of. We worry because it is our way of controlling our fear and anxiety. We worry because we feel it gives us a sense of control but in reality, it merely shows how little control we have. If we truly desire to demonstrate our faith, while at the same time exhibiting some sort of control, we must control our emotions and go to God in prayer and let God be in control.
Lord, let worry be an alarm in my head that alerts me to go to You in prayer with the faith that the answer to prayer isn’t what matters, but peace is.
