“Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.”
Philippians 4:6-7

My theme lately has been to “Roll it over to Jesus!” It is so easy sometimes to “handle” a situation or try to handle it, instead of giving it to the Lord. Giving it to the Lord is definitely a lot better!

George Muller, a Christian evangelist who lived in the 1800s, cared for 10,024 orphans during his lifetime. He established 117 schools which offered Christian education to more than 120,000 children. He distributed over 285,000 Bibles. At the age of 70, he began a 17-year period of missionary travel where he preached in almost forty countries.

Wow! Youth renewed! Helping just one orphan could be a lot of work. One school is a tremendous amount of work, let alone 117! How many Bibles did he give out? 285,000! At 70, he started his 17-year missionary travel!

Muller said, “For more than seventy years I have not been anxious.” “I have rolled my burdens on the Lord, and He has carried them for me. The result of that has been that the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, has kept my heart and mind.”

Now we know his secret! The Word and the power of The Word! He took it! He believed it!

Roll your challenges unto the Lord! He told us to! He can handle them and He wants to. When you find yourself being anxious or laying in bed awake instead of sleeping, quote Phil 4:6-7 and meditate on each word. Ask the Holy Spirit for help. The Word will truly come alive and work.

Many Blessings,
