Don’t Worry (Matthew 6:31-32)

It’s easy for us to panic when we face serious concerns the loss of a job, a family member with cancer, a wayward child.

So we pray. And we get busy. We start doing everything we can think of to move forward in a positive way.

And we worry. We know it’s a waste of time. Yet a lot of us find ourselves in this dilemma – we know we should trust God, but we wonder just what He’s going to do.

That’s when we turn to His Word – to remind us that He is walking with us and inviting us to hand over to Him our worries and burdens. Scripture tells us, “[Cast] all your care upon Him, for He cares for you” (1 Peter 5:7), and “God shall supply all your need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus” (Philippians 4:19).

When your mind turns to anxious thoughts about the future, remember that “your heavenly Father knows” (Matthew 6:32) and will give you what you need. – Cindy Hess Kasper

In don’t know about tomorrow,

It may bring me poverty;

But the One who feeds the sparrow

Is the One who stands by me. – Stanphill

Worry is a burden God never intended us to bear.
