Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time: Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you. (1 Peter 5:6-7) 

Worry—feeling uneasy or troubled—seems to plague multitudes of people in our world today. It’s human nature to be concerned about the bad situations in our world and in our personal lives, but if we’re not careful, the devil will cause us to worry beyond what’s reasonable. 

Like a rocking chair, worry is always in motion, but it never gets you anywhere. So why do we struggle with it? And what good does it do? 

Worry is the opposite of faith. It steals our peace, physically wears us out, and can even make us sick. When we worry, we torment ourselves—we’re doing the devil’s job for him! Worry is caused by not trusting God to take care of the various situations in our lives. Too often we trust our own abilities, believing that we can figure out how to take care of our own problems. And yet, after all our worry and effort to go it alone, we come up short—unable to bring about suitable solutions. 
So stop worrying about everything, give it to God, and live in grace. Grace isn’t just divine favor—it’s power! Don’t waste another day of your life worrying. Determine what your responsibility is and what it is not. Don’t try to take on God’s responsibility. When we do what we can do, God steps in and does what we can’t. So give yourself and your worries to God and begin enjoying the abundant life He has planned for you. 
When I read today’s devotion I was blessed. To often we try to take on responsibilities that don’t belong to us and God is by our side waiting for us to hand it all over to him. Today, go to God in prayer, give your worries over to him and enjoy the day He has blessed you with. Worry doesn’t belong to you or I. One day at a time, that’s all we have to do is take one day at a time and make the very best of the day He has given you. I pray this encourages someone to enjoy the abundant life He has planned for you today. 
Have a beautiful and uplifting day in The Lord!
