“So do not worry or be anxious about tomorrow, for tomorrow will have worries and anxieties of its own. Sufficient for each day is its own trouble.” – Matthew 6:34 (AMPC)
There is so much in life we can be anxious of, but by worrying about it we only magnify the problem. We get ourselves in a state where we cannot think clearly or rationally about it. We cannot possibly be effective in prayer, and in working out a solution to it if we are caught up in ‘worry’. What of tomorrow? Tomorrow hasn’t come; today is what we need to concern ourselves with.
Worry cannot add a single minute to your life. Worry cannot add a single dollar to your bank account. Worry cannot add a single point to your GPA. Worry cannot impress your boss. Worry cannot help your kids behave better. Worry cannot increase your church attendance or help your preaching. Worry cannot strengthen your marriage. Worry cannot help any of us. When we are tempted to worry, the only thing response would be handing everything over to God in prayer. There we can find God’s peace in place of our worry.
Don’t let worry take root for it is all consuming. You cannot have ‘faith’ if you are worried all the time. Take your eyes off the ‘what ifs’ and place them on Jesus. It doesn’t matter how bad your situation is, you can walk through it with your eyes on Jesus. We don’t have to live in anxiety of our ‘tomorrows’.
I Declare: I am anxious for nothing, I refuse to worry today for my tomorrow, because I know God has them all in control.
Ignite Thought: Anxiety over tomorrow’s concerns will rob you of today’s strength.
