Don’t Worry; Trust Him!
Because we are not sure what tomorrow holds, it is natural for most of us to worry. But besides being an utterly unhelpful exercise, worry indicates that we do not trust the One who has promised to take care of us. Yes, the Lord did promise that, and you can find no better cure for worry than taking his words to heart.
Luke 12:22-31 –Then Jesus said to his disciples: “Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat; or about your body, what you will wear. For life is more than food, and the body more than clothes. Consider the ravens: They do not sow or reap, they have no storeroom or barn; yet God feeds them. And how much more valuable you are than birds! Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to your life? Since you cannot do this very little thing, why do you worry about the rest? Consider how the wild flowers grow. They do not labor or spin. Yet I tell you, not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these. If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today, and tomorrow is thrown into the fire, how much more will he clothe you—you of little faith! And do not set your heart on what you will eat or drink; do not worry about it. For the pagan world runs after all such things, and your Father knows that you need them. But seek his kingdom, and these things will be given to you as well.”
Make up your mind to trust Him today. Take all your concerns to Him in prayer, and believe that the Faithful One who provides for the birds of the air (who own no bank accounts), will take care of those concerns as you play your part seeking first His Kingdom.
