Day 66 – Don’t Be Carried Away with Worries
‘Therefore I say unto you, take no thought for your life what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on. Is not the life more than meat, and the body than raiment?’ Matt. 6:25
The act of worry, as natural as it seems considering today’s prevailing circumstances, is a clear sign that we thought that we are able in ourselves to handle every issue we face in life, such that the feeling of unpredictability leaves us in desperation! However, Matt. 6:27 raises a very important question ‘which of you by taking thought can add one cubit to your stature?’ The answer is clear – none of us!
Worry does not solve any problems. On the other hand, for the believer, your life is hid with Christ in God (Col. 3:3). This should be a refreshing reminder to us, no matter what is happening in the world around us, God has you totally and properly covered. Verse 30 of that scripture goes further to state clearly that if God could clothe the ordinary grass of the field, how would you think he won’t clothe you?!
You and I need to make a quality decision NOT TO WORRY about anything. It is wisdom not to worry. Worry kills and chokes life out of people. Worry will even sometimes make you take wrong steps that further complicate the situation you face. Rather, commit all your concerns to the Lord, and do not take them unto yourself. I pray that the Lord deliver you from all the things that are currently the reason for your worries, in Jesus name. Amen. Have a great day!
