Joseph Prince - Give Jesus Your Cares And Live Stress-Free
You know, we live in a very frantic pace right now, one moment you're wishing, you know, each other Happy New Year, next thing you know it's Christmas, right? And it's like you go up to the attic, you bring out your Christmas decorations. Once again, I thought I just put it aside a few months ago. It feels like time is accelerating. Do you feel that way? And with it comes this frantic pace that is causing stress. And now there are many studies that proven that stress, chronic stress can lead to depression, destructive habits, cardiovascular problems, and all kinds of physical conditions. God never meant for you to live in stress. He wants you carefree. And yet, the devil would always come to you and say, "How can you be so carefree because you are being irresponsible". He has given us this idea that when you are worried about someone, you care for them, when you're worried about something, you care for the thing, you're showing your concern.
When actually, one of the biggest, one of the most powerful thing you can do towards the Lord is to let go to him. Can have a good amen? Have you noticed that the first area of redemption, the very first area of redemption that the Lord accomplished for us started in the garden where his passions started, right? And what did he do there? He was praying and the Bible tells us he sweat blood. The very thought of becoming sin at the cross, we cannot understand this because we are people that have lived with sin all our lives. We cannot imagine the holy nature of our law sinless, amen, the Son who loves the Father. Just the very thought of becoming sin at the cross, and he's not there yet, caused him to sweat blood. It is a medical condition and I think Brother Paul is here, Dr. Paul, will forgive me if I pronounce it wrongly. It's a condition called hematidrosis. Okay, I got it, right. He's nodding his head. Praise the Lord. Thank you, Jesus.
I thought I was praying in tongues for a while. But hematidrosis, okay, it is when your body's under extreme stress or emotional stress. Your capillaries burst and blood is mingled with your sweat. So Jesus, the very thought, that anticipation of him becoming sin for us, caused him to sweat blood, how much more when he became sin? Oh, how he loves us, amen. Today, you and I, we are the righteousness of God in Christ because he took our place at the cross, amen. At the cross, the Bible says God made him to be sin for us who knew no sin, that we might be made the righteousness of God in him, amen? We who knew no righteousness is now the righteousness of God in Christ. He didn't deserve to become sin. We don't deserve to become righteous, but he did become sin, and you and I have become the righteousness of God in Christ. When he became sin at the cross, all the judgments of God, the curse, the condemnation all fell on him now that we are the righteousness of God in Christ. All the favor, the goodness, and the blessings of God fall on us, amen? He got what we deserve, so that you and I, we can get what he deserved. That is grace, unmerited, unearned favor, amen.

The law was given by Moses, but grace and truth came by Jesus Christ. Notice grace and truth came by Jesus Christ. Now, the law is given by God, but notice truth is on the side of grace. It is the truth that sets us free, the truth of grace. The law is true, but it cannot make you holy. The law cannot make you righteous. The law cannot bless you. But grace and truth came by Jesus Christ. Some things have changed under the law. God demanded righteousness from man. Under grace, God imparted righteousness to man as a gift. When God gave the law, the Jewish people tell us it's the first Pentecost from Passover, the very first Passover. Fifty days after, they were at Mount Sinai, God gave the law and 3,000 people died at the foot of the mountain. When the day of Pentecost was fully come under the new covenant, God gave the Spirit and 3,000 people were saved. The law says, "I'll by no means clear the guilty, but I'll visit your iniquity to the third and fourth generation". Under grace God says, "Your sins and your iniquities, I will remember no more". Something have changed, amen, and we gotta move our pulpits from Mount Sinai to Mount Zion.
The law, one good way to remember but the law is this, nothing wrong with the law. The law is holy, but it cannot make you holy. It is righteous, it cannot make you righteous. The law is like a mirror, all right, you hold up the mirror, okay, and you see ugly. You cannot blame the mirror for that. The mirror is just true, inflexibly true. Aren't you glad I pick up this instead of this? So, there's nothing wrong with the law, but if you say, "Well, Pastor Prince, I still believe in keeping the law," let me just tell you this, you must keep all. The Bible says in James if you fail in one, only in one, you're guilty of all. Are you listening? So, even though you're not an idolater, but you lie, God sees us an idolater, and an adulterer, and a liar, amen. If you break one, you're guilty of all. By the same token, he has arranged it in such a way you do one right thing, believe on Jesus Christ, and you are justified in all, hallelujah!
I'm glad we are under the New Covenant. And if you're concerned that this kind of preaching, which is the gospel actually, causes people to be licentious, the Bible says in Romans 6:14, "For sin shall not have dominion over you because you are not under law, but under grace". For sin shall not have dominion over you because you are not under law, but under grace". Now, we can say like this, under law, the law, the essence, the main characteristic of the law is demand, demand. Grace supply. The law demands righteousness, grace supplies righteousness. Now effectively, when you live under mindset, "Wow, you know, I got so many things to do this week. I'm under demand. All right, my spouse demands this of me, all right? My children demands this of me. My boss demands this of me, and I demand is of myself".
Now, it's unspoken, but it's that kind of spirit that you live in. If you are demand minded, effectively, you are actually functioning under law. No wonder you're feeling the symptoms of the curse. No wonder you're feeling, you know, high strung, and your stress, and you're full of anxiety because your demand minded. Suppose you wake up every morning and understanding that Jesus died on the cross, he unleashed all the supply that you ever need, amen? It's as if he gave God a righteous outlet to bless sinful men. That's what he did, amen? So today, under grace, you wake up in the morning you say, "Supply is coming my way. It's all supply. I'm under grace, so if I need something, yes, the deadline is up ahead but when the time comes, the supply is gonna be there. Even right now, the supply is coming to me for wisdom to operate in that. Yes, I know my teenage daughter is getting a bit rebellious, but with supply for wisdom to handle her is coming," amen, amen? And don't worry about tomorrow because when tomorrow comes, the supply will be there. See, you live your life supply minded and not demand oriented so effectively, that's how you live by grace.
Now, back to Jesus in the garden. When that happened, he sweat blood. There's a redeeming quality to the blood of our Lord Jesus. And remember what God said to Adam, the first Adam. Jesus is the last man, the second Adam. See, Adam is like the federal head of the human race. Whatever he did affect all of us. God sent Jesus to be the federal head of the new human race, amen? So, in the garden when Adam sinned, God said to Adam this in the garden, "By the sweat of your face, you will eat bread. And for the woman, you'll bring forth children in pain," right? Now, the curse is not bring forth children. The curse is not in the work. God gave man work before the curse came. God told man to keep the garden, right? But stress in work is the curse. By the sweat of your face, you will eat bread. From now on, you will sweat to eat bread. You will sweat to get the good things in life. So, what happened in a garden was finished in another garden. Jesus sweat blood and when he sweat blood, because of the redeeming quality of his blood, he redeemed all of us from the curse of sweat, hallelujah! That was the beginning of his passion, amen?
So, turn to your neighbor right now, smile and say, "Thou shall not sweat". Pastors and leaders, listen to me. It is said like there's more than 50% of pastors that are leaving the ministry today because of stress, burnout. You know, let me just say this to you. God wants us, pastors, it's not about us. The church will still go on without us. We get to do this, amen? We learn to participate in what God is doing. It's not like everything depends on me. I know it's very easy for me to say that but understand, I have a quite a large congregation and we just paid off $400 million building. So, you think about it, the stress I could be under, but I learned from the Lord a long time ago. When I asked him for Word, we were building this building. Nobody thought that we could do it.
In fact, my leaders, they prayed like "Pastor, if God tells you to build this building..".. And we had to, in Singapore, land is scarce, all right, property is expensive. So, when we went for a few properties and all that, finally we got this spot and they told me this. This how encouraging my leaders are. "Pastor, if God speaks to you, we are with you". So everything still comes back on me. You know what I'm saying? I better hear God. And but I asked the Lord for a Word and the Lord gave me a Word from Ruth. It says, "Sit still, my daughter, until you know how the matter will fall out. For the man will not be in rest until he has finished the thing this day". And I know who the glorified man is at the Father's right hand. God is saying to me if I work, he rests. But if I rest, he will go to work, he will go to work.
And I'm pleased to tell you, all right, in five years of building that building, in five years, we only raised like a public, you know, we call it a miracle seed Sunday for the building only four times out of five years. One year God said to me, "Don't do anything". My leaders were kind of panicking at a time. And they said that, "Pastor, aren't we supposed to have a miracle seed Sunday soon"? And I said, "Don't worry. God says not to do it". You know what? The supply came. I just I thank God. I remember if rest, he'll work, amen.
So, you are redeemed from the curse of sweat. And as he prayed, the Bible says, his blood fell to the ground. The ground was cursed. God says, "From henceforth, the ground will bring forth thorns, but because of the redeeming quality of his blood, when he touched the ground, the ground that you walk on today is grace ground, blessed ground, favored ground, redeemed ground. Everywhere you go, you're a blessing, amen? You're a blessing to your friends, to your relatives. Talking about relatives, there was a man who told his wife this, "It's not that I hate your relatives, darling. It's just that I love your mother-in-law more than mine". You will get it. So, what the devil wants to do, all right, if he knows that God's ways are ways of rest, of all the blessings that Jesus could give, Jesus stood before the people of his day and he said this, "Come unto me". Of all the blessings he could give them he says, "Come unto me, and I will give you rest".
God said in Hebrews chapter 4, "There's only one thing for us to fear". Look at Hebrews chapter 4, verse 1. "Let us therefore fear, lest, a promise being left us of entering into his rest, any of you should seem to come short of it". The only thing to fear is to fear not being at rest. Whoa, whoa, whoa. Like the only fight is to fight, not to fight. We fight the good fight of faith, you know what that means? Rest. When the devil says, "Aren't you gonna fight me"? Say, "You're defeated". "What are you saying, Pastor Prince, we just don't worry, and God will take care of everything"? Yes. "It's easy for you to say, you know, because God has..".. But you haven't seen the stress, the troubles I went through, amen? You were not there when the building was presented to me and it wasn't 400 million. It just grew. You know how it's like as time goes on and hidden costs and all that.
And the weight that I feel, I have to do the very same thing as the pastor that you would do. I have to cast all my cares upon him. Look at this verse. This is a beautiful verse. 1 Peter 5, verse 6, "Therefore humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God, that He may exalt you in due time". Do you notice it's a comma after that? It continues, "Casting all your care". In other words, when you are casting all your cares on him, you are humbling yourself before God. You know, it's pride to say, "I'll take care of this. I am responsible for this". God says, "When you cast all your cares upon me, you're humbling yourself". And when you humble yourself, God will exalt you. Just like your pastor, he's a humble man, and God has exalted him, amen? And the context here, I love to preach in context because it's all in the context. "Casting all your care upon him," why, why God wants you to cast all, not just half, all your cares upon him, why? "For," means because, "He cares for you". I don't focus much on the casting your care. Focus on, "He cares for me," and then you pray that prayer of casting all your cares.
Let's suppose you have a care about your teenage son, okay, and he's going around with bad company or, you know, he's into wild partying and all that, and you just can't seem to... he's left church. You say, "Lord, this is my heaviest care". Well, do it business-like. Find a time where you can go somewhere and say, "Father, right now in Jesus's name, all these cares I have about my son," amen? Whatever it is, "My cares about this symptom in my body," all right, I cast it into your hands right now completely and irreversibly, in Jesus's name". And once you have done that, see God taking your care, even you want to write down on a piece of paper one by one all your cares, all right, say, "Father, these are all my cares". Crush the paper and then says, "Father, it's now in your hands".
Do something like that, do it business-like, like your business transaction, amen. And write down somewhere, you know, your smartphone or just make note of this date, this time, amen, and note it down so that next time when the devil comes and tells you, "What are you gonna do about that situation"? You can go back and say, "See, it's all in God's hands now. What are you going to do? Not me," amen? He's gonna take care of it. The devil always try to point you to you because the law is saying to you, "Thou shall not, thou shalt not, thou shalt not". The focus of the law actually empowers the devil, who is the accuser. If you always focus on yourself, then the devil can just point, "Look at your thoughts just now when Pastor Prince went up there, all right, you thought, 'I've never seen an ugly thing like that'". You know, and all of a sudden, you realize you're a Christian, "I shouldn't be thinking that way". Too late.
And then you catch it, what do you do? What do you do then? Thank God. You know, there's a verse of Scripture that says the high priests of Israel... and who is your high priest today? Jesus. The high priests wears a golden plate on his forehead that says, "Holiness to the Lord". And it says this in Exodus 28, you can look up later. It says it's on his head that the people of Israel may be accepted before the Lord. God does not accept the people based on their thoughts, but based on the thoughts of their high priest, amen. As he is, so are we in this world, amen. How is he, how do you think he is? He's under God's unclouded favor, right? So are you in this world. Do you suppose he's young, strong, healthy at the Father's right hand? So are you in this world, amen? Do you suppose that the enemy's under his feet and how far above all principality and power? As he is, so are you in this world. And God wants your focus to be on him.
God is not focused on you in the sense of like your behavior and all that. God is focused on your representative, the new man, the new federal head of the human race, the Lord Jesus Christ who's now glorified, crowned with glory and honor at the Father's right hand who is our high priest, amen. If he is good, God accepts you. If he is no good, God rejects you. In ancient Israel when the high priest goes into the Holy of Holies, all the people outside, they are praying, they are praying with trepidation. They hope he comes out because if he doesn't come out, he drops dead and they have to pull him out and say, "Rubenstein, you're next," all right, they're in trouble because as the high priest goes, so goes Israel. The standing of Israel is wrapped up in their high priest.
It's not a question of how good Israel is. They can be good but if their high priest is bad, God rejects the nation. By the same token, if they are bad, which usually is the case, but their high priest is good, God accepts the entire nation. They can look forward to a year of bumper crops, victory over their enemies and blessings, amen. You know who is your high priest today? The only problem with Israel is this, people, their high priests dies. So, Goldberg could be very good this year, but Goldberg is getting old. Rubenstein, his son, is a party animal and he's succeeding his father. So, they are never so sure because their salvation is all dependent on how good their high priest is and now the high priest is dying. The good one is dying. But you know what the Bible says? That our high priest, he lives after the power of an endless life, amen. As he is, so are we in this world. Can have a good amen?
The prophet is different from the priest. The prophet comes from God to speak to you. He represents God to the people. The high priest represents the nation of Israel to God, you understand? So, Jesus is called not a prophet, but the high priest today, amen. He's been our high priest for 2,000 years, amen. He represents us to God. When Goliath came into the valley of Elah and it challenged Israel to send a champion to fight him, you know, this nine-footer Goliath, ugly. That means, oh man, he was big, and he was ugly, and he was mean, and he was asking Israel to send a champion. "If I defeat him, you surrender but if I lose, I lose, you guys will have to bow before us". No one took up the challenge for 40 days. Along came the shepherd boy. God sent the shepherd with an errand to bring the bread of life to the world. Amen.
The greater Son of David came, and David met Goliath in the Valley of Elah. What an encounter. One little stone when up, up, up and the giant came tumbling down, amen? So, all the standing, all the hopes of Israel, was wrapped up in that boy. He wasn't going down as himself, he was going there as representative of the entire nation. And he did something that I just wish that the heroes in the movies can learn because every time the monster dies, all right, invariably you find the hero kissing the girl. Don't kiss the girl, they can do that later. Decapitate the monster because invariably they always get back up, right? While he's kissing, it always rises.
So, David decapitated Goliath. He knew how to get a head. And all Israel shouted. They screamed the victory and chased down the Philistines. And the Bible tells me something very, very unique. It says that David brought Goliath's head. The Valley of Elah is miles away from Jerusalem, but it says that David brought Goliath's head to Jerusalem. I was thinking, why did he bring... you know, I think about things like this in the Bible. Why will he bring into Jerusalem?
Many years after that, I was reading a Rabbinical account. Some rabbi said that David actually brought the head to mount called Gal Goliath and Gal Goliath is named after Goliath, the skull of Goliath where later on it's called the place of the skull, where the greater Son of David would die for us conquering a greater enemy, hallelujah! So today, God is saying to us, "Cast all your cares 'cause the victory has been one". He doesn't want you to carry any carry on yourself, amen. So notice what is the verse that comes after casting all your cares. Look at the context, "Casting all your cares on him, for he cares for you". The very next verse, "Be sober, be vigilant. Your adversary, the devil, walks about like a roaring lion seeking whom he may devour". In other words, he's looking for people full of cares, people who are stressed.
Listen to this, the devil cannot manage a peaceful Christian. He just cannot handle you. He's gotta have you full of cares. Notice he goes about seeking whom he may devour. That means some people are undevourable. For him to be seeking whom he may, some people are undevourable and these are the people who have learned to cast all your cares upon the Lord. And once you've cast all your cares to the Lord, listen, don't take it back in your thought life. That's why I say write it down somewhere. And the devil will come and say, "What are you gonna do about the situation? The deadline is coming. Do you have the money for it? What are you going to do? What are you going to do? You have to be responsible. What are you going to do"? You're gonna say, "I ain't got it, he's got it," amen. He's got it.
Once you cast your cares, honor the Lord by not taking it back and tell him, you know, when you feel like you're tempted to be worried or stressful again, say, "Lord, I gave it to you that time. I'm gonna honor you by not worrying about this. I refuse to worry about it". Like a man who came back from church one day and he walked into the living room, saw his wife, swept her off her feet. He carried her. And she says, "Darling, you've never done this before? Is it because after church you love me more"? The pastor says, "No, the pastor told me to lift up my problems to God". "That was bad, Pastor Prince".
Okay... mercy. There are some serious issues people deal with, all right, conditions in their body. Have you noticed that those areas that you're not concerned about, grace seems to flow? Like for me, I'm never concerned about money. That's one reason why when this 400 million building came up, I'm just not concerned about money and doesn't mean I have a lot of it. I grew up in a in a poor family, but I learned years ago when I was a college boy that God will take care of me. And God taught me from this, I was learning about sowing and reaping, and I remember I was down to my last $10. And I realized my older brother also had a need, financial need. I heard him asking my mom for some money. And what I did was that unbeknownst to him, I put my last $10 into his wallet. And for some reason that day, someone will bring me out for dinner, someone will come and give me money. It's never happened before.
So, I learned this one area I don't have to worry. In all my adult life, I don't worry about money. It doesn't mean I have a lot of it. I can use a lot more. You know, but it just seem the area I'm not worried about is the area where provision is flowing. I saw this vision years ago of golden pipes, different golden pipes coming from heaven. And later on I found in the Book of Zechariah chapter 4 that Zechariah saw the same golden pipes feeding golden oil to the menorah, the lampstand. And these golden pipes coming down from heaven on this man, one was for parenting skills. One was for wisdom. One was for health and healing. One was financial supply, amen? So, a lot of golden pipes coming down. Supply is flowing to him all the time.
You see, we have this idea when you pray, then God starts supplying. But in Galatians chapter 3 it says, "God is constantly supplying the Spirit". The Greek there is present tense, constantly supplying you the Spirit. Even right now, hey, you're not leaking. "I used to be full of the Holy Spirit. I think I leaked somewhere". No, open your eyes and see you're constantly being filled. Galatians chapter 3, verse 1 all the way to verse 5, read it. And it says not only that in the present tense, God is constantly working miracles amongst you, constantly. God is working miracles constantly among you, amen? So, it's not as if you start praying, then God supplies. Ever since Jesus died, all the supplies of heaven and all the goodness of heaven, all the heavenly supplies has been unleashed upon a lost, crying, sighing world, amen.
So, "If that is true, Pastor Prince, how come I don't see the supply? How come I don't see the manifestation"? Because you know why? I saw this vision of the golden pipes and the oil was coming down on this man, different, different areas of his need. And then all of a sudden he was worried about an area of his life. Let's say he has some symptoms, the devil is putting some symptoms on him and he start being worried about his health, the supply stops. When he worries, the supply stops and that's why Jesus said in the Sermon on the Mount, "Take therefore no anxious thought and God will feed you better than the birds of the air. Are you not of more value than they"? Jesus says literally, "Let go and his supply will flow," amen. Let go and you'll be better clothed than the lilies of the field who are better clothed than Solomon, the wealthiest man in history in all his glory. "Wah, that sounds so simplistic, Pastor Prince. Let go and the supply will flow, yes"! Sit back, I want you to watch this testimony from this lady of healing and listen to what she said.
Belinda: I went for a regular doctor's checkup after my mammogram because five years earlier, I had an early detected case of breast cancer. During this routine exam, the doctor examined me said she had felt a lump. She then conducted an ultrasound on me but because the scan wasn't very clear, she requested that I stick around to have another one done by the radiologist. I agreed but also began speaking Scriptures over the lump. I refused to give into fear. As I was waiting, I received your daily grace inspiration email entitled Choose Not To Worry. The devotional encouraged me not to worry and quoted Matthew 6, verse 27. "Which of you by worrying can add one cubit to his stature? There was also a testimony of a woman in your church who was diagnosed with lumps and her breasts after a mammogram, but she believed that she was healed. She even wrote on her medical report that Jesus is her healer. In a subsequent ultrasound scan the very same day revealed no evidence of any lumps". I almost burst into tears because I knew that it was for me". I began to meditate on that Scripture and several other healing Scriptures. Even though I wanted to call my husband and friends to pray for me, I didn't because I felt that God was telling me to trust him. An hour later, the radiologist conducted the scan on me twice, but she was unable to find the lump and I had to point out where it was. However, all she said was, "I can't find anything. There's nothing on the film, and I can't find anything".
Joseph Prince: "Well, Pastor Prince, I'm unemployed. What do I do, Pastor"? Watch this next one.
Anita: I worked in a manufacturing plant as a production supervisor and was laid off and January. Just before I was told the news, I heard in my heart, "All things work together for my good". I am a divorcee and a mother of two teens, so I was the sole provider for my household, or so I thought. I continued to concentrate on the grace of God that has been given to us as believers. I taped your program every day and watched it nonstop. I even kept it on while I slept. As I watched and listened, the love of my heavenly Father became so true in my heart that I just knew everything was going to be fine. Whenever the bills were due, I would hear him tell me, "My grace is sufficient for you". Sure enough, everything always worked out. In July, I was offered a position as a manufacturing supervisor for about the same pay as I was getting in my last job, but I just knew in my heart that it wasn't the position I wanted. I had prayed and asked the Lord for position as a human resource manager and turned that position down. In November, the CEO of that organization called me and said that she was looking through the former human resource manager's desk and saw my resume. She said that it was a divine appointment because she had decided that she wasn't going to fill the position until the following year, but she wanted to interview me. At the interview, she hired me on the spot. She said the Lord had sent me to her. When she asked about my salary expectations and I answered, she said that she was going to give me significantly more than what I wanted. Praise the Lord. This was my dream job, and I know the Lord sent me here. I just wanted to encourage those who are unemployed to make your requests known to God and let his peace guard your hearts and minds. In Christ Jesus, our heavenly Father cares for everything that concerns us.
Joseph Prince: Amen. Let me just share this in closing. On the night that Jesus was betrayed, the Last Supper, one of the things he left behind of all the things that he could do, he actually said this, "My peace I leave with you, my peace, that peace you saw me operate in, that peace when the storm was brewing in the Lake of Galilee and the winds were blowing and I was asleep in that boat, that same peace. When they came to arrest me with one word, they fell before me, that peace that you see me operating in, I leave with you. My peace I give to you, not as the world gives do I leave with you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid". Do you know the word "peace," he would have spoken Aramaic Hebrew to his disciples, right?
In English it's peace, but in Hebrew, it is shalom. "Shalom I leave with you. My Shalom, I give to you". Shalom, according to Strong's Concordance definition is the word "welfare, health, provision, and peace". It's not just peace, it's health, it's provision. So, he saying Jesus never lacked. He never told his disciples, "I can't go on with you guys today because I'm sick. I've been down with this flu". No, he's always healthy. "My shalom I leave with you. My health I leave with you. My peace I give to you, not as the world gives, do I give to you". Then, Pastor Prince, if he gave it to us, how come something is missing? Something went wrong in the distribution line. I didn't get it".
Well, notice that verse ends with what? "Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid". The only thing that he asked us to do, "Let not your heart be troubled". Memorize that verse and every time you feel your heart being troubled, quote that verse, "Let not your heart be troubled," amen. Make it like a game every day. Here comes a temptation to be troubled, "Let not your heart be troubled," amen. Victory number two, victory number three. Make it like a game. If you'll let not. I can't let not for you. Your pastor can't let not for you. Your spouse cannot let not for you. Only you can let not for yourself. But if you will let not your heart be troubled, the peace that he has given to us will rise, will spring forth speedily, amen, and make you whole. So, peace I leave with you, let not your heart be troubled. In the Greek it's an imperative, "Let not your heart be troubled". He loves you so much he doesn't want to see you troubled. I look at my five-year-old and all I want to hear from him is a good belly laugh. I love to see him carefree. I don't see him, "Daddy, when it's my next meal coming from"? See how much God loves you? Let not your heart be troubled, and no one can do that for you. Memorize that verse and quote it every time the care comes and know that he loves you, amen?

God's gonna give you houses full of good things that you did not fill. He will give you a restoration that you can never dream of. You'll look back and say, understand where I'm coming from, this is from the Lord. "I'm glad that happened or else I would have moved into this house. I wouldn't have moved to this location". Something is happening, amen. Restoration is coming your way. If you say, "Pastor Prince, I want this peace that the world cannot give. The world gives you a peace that's temporal, that's based on outward circumstances, but I want this peace". Well friend, you get it from the Prince of peace, amen. Jesus died on the cross for your sins. While you were yet a sinner, God loved you and God sent His Son to die on the cross and he bore our judgment that today we will bear his favor. He bore our curse that we might carry his blessings. He was made sin that you might be made the righteousness of God in him. If that is you wherever you are, you say, "Pastor Prince, pray for me. I want this salvation. I want this peace. I want to know when I walk out of this place, God is my Father and I can live the let-go life".
If that is you wherever you are right now, pray this prayer with me right now. Everyone praying out loud say, Heavenly Father, I thank you for the gift of your Son, my Lord Jesus Christ. I believe he died for my sins. He rose again from the dead because death has been conquered. I have no fear of tomorrow. I thank you I'm watched over, loved, deeply loved, and highly favored in Jesus' name. Jesus is my Lord, amen". Do you receive that? Praise God. God bless you. Thank you very much. It's been a privilege to minister to you. Amen, God bless you. Thank you.
