“Leave all your cares and anxieties at the feet of the Lord, and measureless grace will strengthen you.” (Psalms 55: 22, the Passion Translation)
This sounds like a wonderful trade! With humility and reverence, we leave with God the fears and burdens we may feel. In return for our release to Him, God grants us not only a little grace, but measureless grace. And why wouldn’t it be limitless, considering the Source and His infinitude, and the fullness of His Love for us?
As we willingly choose to relinquish our cares—our personal control over life—we feel the great gift of God’s wise and loving control over all. Our anxieties fall away in God’s certainty and protection, His Truth and affection. We are strengthened because we are no longer carrying the load. We are letting God do it. And to Him it is not a burden at all. It is only an occasion to show us even more of His infinite goodness, and an opportunity for us to grow in our own understanding of what is true and right and real.
What a relief to know that we can give up these heavy concerns; that we can only gain power and poise and peace by letting God be God—our loving and grace-filled Father-Mother-Life!
