Friday Devotional - Turning Anxiousness to Excitement

So whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God.
— 1 Corinthians 10:31

Man with head in hands depicting anxiousness

I see and hear about a lot of anxious people these days. People are scrambling to do their due diligence in life. There’s spouses, kids, and grandkids. There’s church, work and errands. There’s life…and all that comes with it. But we also need to start turning that anxiousness into excitement. God’s got us…He’s got you. (Psalm 5:1-3) talks about crying out to God with our needs, and then waiting with anticipation to see what He’ll do with it. When you feel anxiousness welling up in your life, flip the switch in your mind. Give it over to the Lord, trust that the Holy Spirit will help, and then be excited to see what God does with it.

God promises us in His Word that He’ll be in us, beside us, and flow out of us when we put our trust in Him (Acts 1-2).

That the Lord will keep us in perfect peace as we stay close to Him. (Isaiah 26:3)

That we can do all things through Christ who gives us strength. (Philippians 4:13)
