Mustard Seed Daily Devotion

It’s true! Believe it! God cares!

In the Word

Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you. 1 Peter 5:7

Of the Word

And my God will meet all your needs according to his glorious riches in Christ Jesus (Philippians 4:19). Have you ever found yourself so anxious about the “what if’s” that you closed your eyes to today’s blessings? Anxiety runs high in our society today. We’re anxious about world peace, financial security, family relationships and so much more. God gives us a simple plan to deal with our anxiety: pray about it! Yes, in everything, at all times, in all circumstances, bring your anxious thoughts and concerns before the Lord in prayer. And then leave them there because God’s peace, which is beyond our human understanding, will keep us focused on what truly is important, Jesus our Savior.

Walking with my Lord

Gracious Heavenly Father, when this world’s concerns and my personal frustrations bring about only anxiety and stress, lead me through the difficult times and grant me Your peace. Help me to remember Your promise to supply all my needs so worrying is unnecessary. You’ve got it all covered! In the saving name of Jesus. Amen.
