We turn on the radio, T.V., computer, or read the newspaper, or other sources. There is sufficient turmoil locally, nationwide, or world news to make you want to shake some folk and ask whether it could all be true.
There is little to retain a positive outlook, save that we rest assured that God is on the THRONE and His will and way is under His direction. My daughter purchased a mug on it that said: “Why sleep when you can worry?” She assured me it was a joke because I can zonk out in just a few minutes.
Anxiety about things beyond our control, or worry about tomorrow makes little sense. Jesus said: “do not be worried about your life, as to what you will eat, or what you will drink; nor for your body, as to what you will put on. Is not life more than food and the body more than clothing?” (Matthew 6:25)
He continues to relate about the birds and the manner in which God cares for them. He compares the lilies of the field with Solomon and adds: “Not even Solomon in all his glory clothed himself like one of these.” By the way, as concerning food or drink: “for your Heavenly Father knows that you need all of these things.” (v32)
“But seek ye first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things will be added to you.” “So do not worry about tomorrow; for tomorrow will care for itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.” (Matthew 6:33, 34)
While we may each be “concerned” and desire the best for our own, (Especially our family) we rest comfortably in the realization that God is in control of everything, everything that transpires. The truth of all of this is that I rest in confidence that He is more concerned about me than I about Him. I will follow the path which has its end with Him. I will rest in the assurance of His promises. I will anticipate His fulfillment of the Words He has spoken and I will refuse to yield to others who will endeavor to tear down the Promises of Christ my wonderful Savior and Lord! I refuse to worry when I can commit each day, each event, unto Him who has promised: “Lo! I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” (Matthew 28:20)
LET GO AND LET GOD!
