What are you dwelling on? What are you worried about? How much time do you spend in premeditated thought about how a situation or circumstance will be taken care of? Why do we do this to ourselves? We loose sleep…we don’t eat right…we become irritable…and we create headaches and stresses that make it worse. Do you realize that all this exhaustion and effort is our own fault? We gain nothing from trying to have complete control over situations that are out of our control. Have you ever thought of how many times you have heard the statement “give it to God”? The reality is…God is the person who we should be giving all the control. He is the one who controls the universe, so He is more than capable of controlling our situation. In fact, God can take a really horrible situation…and turn it around into something you would never have been able to imagine. God can take your life and begin creating peace and calm within it. It’s all up to how we decide to handle the life we have going on right now. We can begin applying God’s Word to our lives…by really believing what God says. If we start with that simple trust in God’s promises…we can rest assured that things will begin to work out for the good. Jesus said, “Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.” Matthew 6:34. Begin today by asking God to show you the way through today. Allow Him to lead you, and you will feel your life balancing out…one day at a time.
My son, pay attention to what I say; listen closely to my words. Do not let them out of your sight, keep them within your heart; for they are life to those who find them and health to a man’s whole body. Above all else, guard your heart, for it is the wellspring of life. PROVERBS 4:20-23
“Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more important than food, and the body more important than clothes? Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to his life?” MATTHEW 6:25-27
God is with us.
