This is one of my favourite verses. Probably because I tend to worry a lot and I need to be reminded to pray and give thanks instead. Worrying about stuff doesn't change anything - it just wears you out. It is also bad for your health contributing to headaches, muscle tightness in your neck and shoulders, affects your eating (overeating or not eating enough), stomach aches, trouble sleeping etc. 1 Peter 5:7 says, Give all your worries to him, because he cares for you. This is why you don't have to worry, because he is looking after you.
CHALLENGE: Write down the things that you are worried about. Pray and give them to God. Now write the things that you are thankful for - thank God for them.
