STOP WORRYING ABOUT IT!

June 13, 2014

“Do not worry.” Mt 6:31 NKJV
If you let them, two things will rob you of your peace of mind: (1) The past. We all make mistakes—even the folks you admire and think never make mistakes. The Bible says, “Every man shall bear his own burden” (Gal 6:5). We all struggle in certain areas. We all say and do things we wish we hadn’t said or done. “So what can I do?” you ask. Ask God to forgive you, then trust Him to make it work out all right. He can do that. He can help you clean up your mistakes and grow stronger through them. For example, when you say something you shouldn’t, instead of obsessing about whether or not you offended some- body, ask the Lord to let them know your heart was right even though you put your foot in your mouth. Trust God to work on them and give you favor. That way you don’t have to spend the next several days feeling anxious, or cringe when you meet them. (2) The future. God won’t meet tomorrow’s needs until tomorrow comes. So when you are having an attack of the “what ifs,” stop and consider these words from the lips of Jesus: “Therefore do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ For after all these things the Gentiles seek. For your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things. But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you” (Mt 6:31-33 NKJV). Victor Hugo said, “When you have accomplished your daily task, go to sleep in peace; God is awake!”
