Every Detail: An Excerpt from "Prayers to Calm Your Anxious Heart"

Hi Friends,

I hope this new season finds your heart well. I felt led to share a chapter from Prayers to Calm Your Anxious Heart. May it calm and encourage your heart. 

Every Detail

Do not be afraid or discouraged, for the Lord will personally go ahead of you. He will be with you; he will neither fail you nor abandon you. (Deuteronomy 31:8)

How immensely encouraging and comforting it is to know that God Himself personally goes before us. Absolutely nothing takes Him by surprise. When we’re uncertain or confused, He is consistently steady and near. When our closest friend moves out of state, when our job description changes extensively, and on days when tears sting our eyes more than once, we don’t have to allow anxiety to get the best of us.

When uneasiness clatters against our hearts, how reassuring it is to know that the Lord is with us and for us, clearing the way ahead. He knows every turn and all the details of our path, and in His kindness and goodness He orchestrates the specifics that deeply concern our hearts. Through each disappointment or setback, He never fails us or abandons us.

Nothing in life remains constant, and course changes inevitably happen. Yet, “Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever” (Hebrews 13:8). He is the solid Rock our hearts lean on when the unexpected occurs. We never have to fret or yield to apprehension, because whatever each day holds, He is with us—His beautiful presence leading, calming, and reassuring us every step of the way.

PRAYER: Lord, I’m grateful that You see the big picture in my life, and yet You still oversee even the smallest of details. When unexpected changes happen, help me remember that You go before me in all I do, orchestrating all that concerns my heart, planning my way today and every day. Because You oversee everything, never failing me or abandoning me, I can choose to resist apprehension and rest in your faithfulness. I love that Your awesome, mighty presence leads me, reassures me, and calms me. You are the solid Rock stabilizing my heart, and I am grateful. In Jesus’s precious name, amen.

Focusing on Him and Trusting Him,
