Are you feeling weary, burdened or overwhelmed today? Take a deep breath. God sees you. We all have moments in our lives that try to overtake us, but the truth is, they don’t deserve that kind of power! The best way to fight worry is to dive straight into scripture for encouragement and peace. Here are some verses to meditate on today.
Give your burdens to the Lord, and he will take care of you.
He will not permit the godly to slip and fall. Psalm 55:22
Hear my cry, O God, listen to my prayer; from the end of the earth I call to you
when my heart is faint, lead me to the rock that is higher than I.
For you have been my refuge, a strong tower against the enemy. Psalm 61:1-3
Though we are overwhelmed by our sins, you forgive them all. Psalm 65:3
For the Lord your God is living among you. He is a mighty savior. He will take delight in you with gladness. With his love, he will calm all your fears. He will rejoice over you with joyful songs. Zephaniah 3:17
I am leaving you with a gift—peace of mind and heart. And the peace I give is a gift
the world cannot give. So, don’t be troubled or afraid. John 14:27
Then Jesus said, “Come to me, all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you. Let me teach you, because I am humble and gentle at heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy to bear, and the burden I give you is light.” Matthew 11:28-30
Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done. Then you will experience God’s peace, which exceeds anything we can understand. His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus.
We come to you now and thank you for who you are. Thank you for the way you love us—unconditionally, uncontrollably and so undeservingly. Help us to lay our worries at your feet. When we are overwhelmed, lead us to the rock that is higher than us. Lead us to you. We love you, father. It’s in your name we pray. Amen.
