One day my mother was fussing as she struggled to fasten her seat belt. Hearing her sigh of frustration as I sat in the driver’s seat, I said, “Let me take care of it”. I slipped the latch for the belt into its place and she relaxed.
Afterwards I thought of how often God must want to say to us as we fuss and fret over a situation, “Let Me take care of it”. While we figuratively bang our heads against the wall, trying this way or that to solve the problem, God waits for us to ask Him for help. He wants to say, “Let Me take care of it”.
Scriptures to Consider: Ps. 103:13, Luke 11:9, 10, I Peter 5:7, Philippians 4:6,7

Excellent illustration, the verses are very helpful, thank you.
I really like that first verse you listed. It fits your illustration to a T. When I read it in the Bible, my mind immediately thought back to your post and I could picture the Lord leaning over and saying “Let me take care of it.”
🙂 Thank you.
I appreciate the scripture references as well, sister P. I’ve read all of them before but needed to read them again. It’s so easy to fret about an unknown future, yet God has the whole world in His hands.
Thank you. Especially right now, I need to remind myself of this!
