Joyce Meyer daily devotionals August 6 2022 :
We can be thankful that we don’t have to worry about things, figure out everything, or carry heavy burdens in our lives. It is actually quite refreshing—and something to be grateful for—to realize that I don’t need to have all the answers to my problems. We need to get comfortable with saying, “I don’t know the answer to this dilemma, and I’m not going to worry about anything because God is in control, and I trust Him. I’m going to rest in Him!”
When we’re overloaded with the cares of life—struggling, laboring, and worrying—we need a mental and emotional vacation. Our minds need to rest from thinking about how to take care of problems, and our emotions need to rest from being upset. Worry isn’t restful at all. In fact, it steals rest and the benefits of rest from us. So next time you feel you are carrying a heavy load in your mind, or you find yourself worried and anxious, remember, you can put your trust in God and enjoy His rest.
Prayer Starter: Father, I am grateful that You give me rest. Thank You that I don’t have to have all the answers all the time—I can trust in You and live a life of peace, contentment, and rest.
