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 dilemmawe 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.
