“But Lord,” exclaimed Ananias, “I’ve heard many people talk about the terrible things this man has done to the believers in Jerusalem!”
Acts 9:13, NLT
It’s Already Taken Care Of
In the Scripture, when God told Ananias to go pray for Saul, Ananias didn’t want to go. Saul was the biggest persecutor of the church. But Ananias didn’t know that Saul’s life had been changed on the road to Damascus. He was worried and started telling God all the reasons why he shouldn’t go. He didn’t realize that God had already taken care of what worried him. When he went and prayed for Saul, instead of finding an enemy, he found an ally.
Some of the things we worry about, God has already changed. He’s already set the miracle into motion. He’s already spoken to the right people, lined up the healing or breakthrough. It’s just a matter of time before you experience it. There’s no reason to be worried over that situation at work or that negative medical report. The threat has already been taken care of, and the solution is en route. Stay in peace, and as Ananias did, you’ll come into what God has already done. Don’t let worry rob you.
A Prayer for Today
“Father, thank You that You are in control of all the situations in my life, and You are always working behind the scenes. Thank You that I don’t need to understand everything along the way, and that I can simply trust You. I’m not going to live worried, upset, or discouraged. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.”
