How can I turn all my worries and problems over to God?

Post by POKNAT on Sat Sep 24, 2011 5:01 am

It is sometimes a disconcerting truth for many Christians that even
though we belong to God through faith in Christ, we still seem to
experience the same problems that plagued us before we were saved. We
often become discouraged and bogged down in life’s cares. The fact that
both the Old and New Testaments address this problem the same way
indicates that God knows problems and worries are inevitable in this
life. Thankfully, He has given us the same solution
He gave in both Psalms and Peter’s letter. “Cast your cares on the LORD
and he will sustain you; he will never let the righteous fall” (Psalm
55:22), and “Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you” (1 Peter 5:7).

Contained within these two verses are several amazing truths:
God will
sustain us, He will never let us fall, and He cares for us. Taken one
at a time, we see first that God declares both His ability and His
willingness to be our strength and support—mentally, emotionally and
spiritually. He is able (and best of all, willing!) to take everything
that threatens to overwhelm us and use it for our benefit. He has
promised to “work all things together for the good of those who love
him, who have been called according to his purpose.” Even at times when
we doubt Him, He is still working
for our good and His glory. And He has also promised that He will allow
no trial to be so great we cannot bear it and that He will provide a
means of escape (1 Corinthians 10:13). By this, He means that He will
not let us fall, as He promised in Psalm 55:22.

The third statement—“he cares for you”—gives us the
motivation behind His other promises. Our God
is not cold, unfeeling or capricious. Rather, He is our loving heavenly
Father whose heart is tender toward His children. Jesus reminds us that
just as an earthly father would not deny his children bread, so God has
promised to give us “good gifts” when we ask Him (Matthew 7:11).

In the spirit of asking for good gifts, first we must pray and tell the
Lord that we hear what He's saying in John 16:33, where Jesus says,
"These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you may have peace. In
the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have
overcome the world." Then we should ask the Lord to show us how He has
"overcome" our problems, our worries, our anger, our fears and our

The Lord reveals to us through His Word, the Bible, that we can be of good "cheer," that we can

1) rejoice in our problems because God will use them to our benefit.
"Knowing that tribulation produces perseverance; and perseverance,
character; and character, hope" (Romans 5:3-4);

2) see our "worries" as an opportunity to practice Proverbs 3:5-6, "
Trust in the Lord
with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct your paths";

3) counteract our anger by obeying Ephesians 4:32, "And be kind to one
another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God in Christ
forgave you"; and

4) deal with any sinful feelings by believing and acting upon the truth
of 1 John 1:9, "If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to
forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness." All of
our problems can be dealt with through simple faith in God's Word.

God is bigger than all our worries and problems put together, and we
must realize that if we are to have any victory in our lives. Everyone
suffers with these difficulties, because the Bible teaches that
temptation is "common" to mankind (1 Corinthians 10:13). We must not let
Satan deceive us into thinking that all our problems are our fault, all
our worries will come true, all our anger condemns us, or that all our
guilt is from God. If we do sin and confess, God forgives and cleanses.
We need not feel ashamed, but rather take God at His Word that He does
forgive and cleanse. None of our sins are so heavy that God cannot lift
them from us and throw them into the deepest sea (see Psalm 103:11-12).

In reality, feelings come from thoughts, so, even though we can't change
how we feel, we can change how we think. And this is what God wants us
to do. For example, in Philippians 2:5, Christians are told, "Let this
mind be in you, which was also in
Christ Jesus."
In Philippians 4:8, Christians are told to think on things that are
"true," "noble," "just," "pure," "lovely," "of good report," and
"praiseworthy." In Colossians 3:2, we are told to "set your mind on
things above, not on things on the earth." Therefore, as we do this, our
feelings of guilt diminish.

So, each day, taking one step at a time, we should pray for God's Word
to guide us, read or listen to God's Word, and meditate on God's Word
when the problems, worries, and
of life come along. The secret to giving things over to Christ is
really no secret at all—it's simply asking Jesus to take our burden of
"original sin" and be our Savior (John 3:16), as well as submitting to
Jesus as our Lord in day-to-day living.
