1 Peter 5:7
Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you.
It’s easy to think of God as too important. Obviously, He’s pretty great – He made the world in seven days, heals the sick, raises the dead and has a habit of performing miracle after miracle. But I think because we see him as so great, we forget that He also I cares about the things we care about.
I remember a few years ago I was suffering with really bad acne. My face was covered in spots – it was so bad that my skin actually felt sore. My mum told me to pray about it, and I laughed, saying “but it’s just my skin, God doesn’t care about that. Surely there are better, more important things to pray about”.
But now I know that’s a lie that the devil loves to feed us. God does care, and He does want us to talk about it to Him. He wants us to pray about everything – even our tiny, pointless little worries. He wants us to never stop praying!
This is something that I’m trying really hard to work on. I want to talk to God as if He’s my best friend.
If you want this too, the best thing to do is to pray about praying. Ask God to help you pray instead of worry.
