Surrendering Our Worries: Choosing God’s Peace Over Stress

Mar 13, 2024

“Therefore, since we have been made right in God’s sight by faith, we have peace with God because of what Jesus Christ our Lord has done for us” (Romans 5:1).

In the midst of our daily lives, it’s easy to concede to worry and anxiety, forgetting the peace that Jesus has already given us. We often struggle with surrendering our worries to him, because giving up control is so difficult. Instead, we choose to shape outcomes according to our limited understanding. When we fully accept His divine wisdom and power as supreme, we can truly be liberated from the vicious cycle of stress and burnout. The choice is ours—to either carry our burdens alone or rely on God, trusting in His plan.

We can alleviate self-imposed pressures by tapping into God’s peace that is already within us. God is the same yesterday, today, and forever. He never changes and neither does His love for us! When we make Him the main focus and commit to letting HIM control the outcomes, we no longer have to worry about changing circumstances or being afraid of what lies ahead.

Your Call to Action

Step into the peace and comfort that only faith in God can bring. Surrender your anxieties, embrace His eternal love, and let His divine wisdom guide your life. You are not alone. You have the ultimate companion navigating with you through every twist and turn. Let God’s peace reign in your life today.

“Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid” (John 14:27).

“But he was pierced for our transgressions, he was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was on him, and by his wounds we are healed” (Isaiah 53:5).

“The Lord gives strength to his people; the Lord blesses his people with peace” (Psalm 29:11).


Our Father, which art in Heaven, Hollowed be Thy name. Thy Kingdom come, Thy will be done, on earth as it is in Heaven. Give us this day, our daily bread, and forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those that trespass against us. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. For thine is the Kingdom, the power, and the glory forever. Amen.

A Comforting Closure

Trust in God and watch as His peace replaces your worries, guiding you through the unpredictable journey of life.
