Tomorrow — its troubles will take care of themselves. Needs – my being concerned about them, won’t make the need met. Trials – they come, I can’t solve them. Anxiety – does no good, weighs me down. Death – its inevitable, but it can’t conquer me. Money – it answers many things, but it is not the real need – EVER. Fear – it happens, but it doesn’t solve anything. These are just a few of the things that can occupy our minds; our hearts; our thoughts.
The great thing about being in Him is that we have answers for all of these things. Tomorrow – He knows what lies ahead of us. Needs – He will generously take care of them not based upon what you can do, but upon His own limitless supply. Trials – He has already overcome them all and He is working them out for your good. Anxiety – gratefulness will run it away and besides He is with us always. Death – no such thing, we are eternal beings destined to dwell with Him forever. Money – He owns the cattle of a thousand hills and as our Father, we will have what we need. Fear – we trust in Him and His love casts it out.
When you feel yourself starting to slip into worry, REMEMBER – He calms storms; He opens up seas so that you can walk right through; He brings life to things that once were passed away; His love is unfailing; He hears the cries of the righteous and delivers them; His compassions do not fail; His mercies will meet the needs of each new day; He gives endurance and encouragmenet; He is your strength and your defence; He is the source of our help; He is greater than all – what problem do you have that can stand against Him!
There are a great many things about which we could worry — but by worrying we don’t solve anything. As for me, I will just trust His Word — everything is going to be alright! He’s got my back; and my front; and each side; and He even holds me up. He is faithful. His promises are yes and amen. He is the covenant keeper. I will rest – lay back into His presence (as I imagine the beloved disciple did) – and watch Him work.
And the peace of God, which surpasses all comprehension, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. (Philippians 4:7 NASB)
