Pray & Walk Away

feb11“Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to his life?” Matthew 6:26-27 (NIV)

While I can quote all kinds of catchy, spiritual phrases about not worrying; I rarely ever stick to them. I’ve tried the “Let Go – Let God” and “It’s in God’s Hands.” My newest one is “Pray and Walk Away.” Easier said than done. My natural instinct is to be concerned – translated worry – but the Bible calls it a waste of time. And the reward for worrying: stress, frustration, disappointment and usually more trouble.

If God takes care of the birds, then we know He has even better things planned for us. One of the things my Granny always did was to lay things at the feet of Jesus. If your name was on her prayer list, you were prepared for God to shake things up. God expects us to bring our burdens (big, small, silly, serious, life or death) to Him because He has the answers. When we pray and leave our burdens at His feet, we need to walk away and wait until He answers in whatever manner He chooses. Instantly our burden is lifted off of us and more blessings follow as we watch God’s answer unfold.

“Dear Jesus, Help us to lay our burdens at Your feet then walk away and let You take care of them. Give us the strength and peace of mind to wait patiently for Your answers. May we enjoy the freedom of not carrying the burden that we don’t want to pick it back up.”

For His Glory
