The list of things I can worry about is pretty long. Give me a whole day and it grows enormously.
My heavenly Father knows I need stuff. I have to have faith. It is all about faith. Do I believe He loves me and has every good thing ready for me? Will He not do His best for me? I have to be going after His Kingdom. I have to seek the right standing He can bring to me. The other stuff will come.
Here are some things worry can do.
- Damage my health.
- Cause the object of my worry to consume my thoughts.
- Disrupt my productivity.
- Affect the way I treat others.
- Reduce my ability to trust God.
May I pay attention to what He is doing now and not worry about what may or may not happen tomorrow!!!
For this reason I say to you, do not be worried about your life …. But if God so clothes the grass of the field, which is alive today and tomorrow is thrown into the furnace, will He not much more clothe you? You of little faith! Do not worry then, saying, ‘What will we eat?’ or ‘What will we drink?’ or ‘What will wear for clothing?’ For the Gentiles eagerly seek all these things; for your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things. But seek first His kingdom and His righteousness, and all these things will be added to you. So do not worry about tomorrow ; for tomorrow will care for itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.
