“Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank Him for all He has done.”
How many minutes of our lives do we waste worrying? Worrying about circumstances that are beyond our control? The truth is, as Jesus said, ‘worrying does not add a single moment to your life?’ It is a fruitless agenda. It belittles our faith in Jesus and it lessens our understanding of God as ABBA Father: The God who will provide.
Yet having said all that, our natural instinct is to worry. Even though we know God is more than capable to deliver us, provide us and sometimes sort out the mess that we have gotten ourselves into. Yet there comes a time in our lives where we need to suppress these feelings of worry and exercise our faith by trusting in God. Let us put a stake in the ground and say from this moment on, WE WILL NOT WORRY ABOUT ANYTHING BUT TRUST IN GOD ALMIGHTY FOR EVERYTHING! He is our Rock and Redeemer. It is Jesus’ words that re-assure and comfort us to not worry but trust in Him and it is Paul’s words that re-affirm that truth, so that in thanksgiving we too can rejoice that God is in control. There is no need to worry. It is a promise. This is not to belittle your problems, but rather to magnify God to become greater than your than worries.
