Lifting the Rock

Cast all your anxiety on Him because He cares for you. 1 Peter 5:7

We see yesterday, we see last year, but there is no way we can look into even the next day. Unlike us, our amazing God has no time limits. We don’t always see how our problems are going to be fixed, so we constantly think and beat ourselves over how to make them all better.

Yet, our awesome God has already taken care of the problem. Our job is to trust Him fully with absolutely everything. It sounds so easy, but having that kind of child-like trust in Him is exactly what He wants. If God is our Heavenly Father, He wants us to come to Him and put all of our cares upon Him! We might need to take small steps to give it all up into His mighty hands, but it will surely be worth it.

To illustrate God taking care of our problems before we even know it, I would like to remember Easter morning. When the women were walking to Jesus’ tomb, they found themselves in a huge problem. “Who will roll the stone away from the entrance of the tomb?” (Mark 16:3) They had absolutely no idea God was behind the scenes (as always) controlling the situation. He had already taken care of the problem. The rock was gone! Jesus was gone!

God is in charge of the situation, no matter what! He is already two steps ahead of us. With Him, our problems will be solved. If not today, then tomorrow it will be better. He will lift “the rock”. Of course, we will have new problems to face, but when we feel God’s strong hand and peace within our hearts, the problems will be much easier to face.

Him+Her Talk
