Trust God Today, And Let His Peace Overrule Your Worry!
“And He said to His disciples: ‘Therefore I tell you, do not be anxious about your life, what you will eat, nor about your body, what you will put on. For life is more than food, and the body more than clothing. Consider the ravens: they neither sow or reap, they have neither storehouse nor barn, and yet God feeds them. Of how much more value are you are than the birds! And which of you by being anxious can add a single hour to his span of life? If then you are not able to do as small a thing as that, why are you anxious about the rest?
‘Consider the lilies, how they grow: they neither toil nor spin, yet I tell you, even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. But if God so clothes the grass, which is alive in the field today, and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, how much more will he clothe you, O you of little faith! And do not seek what you are to eat and what you are to drink, nor be worried. For all the nations of the world seek after these things, and your Father knows that you need them. Instead seek His kingdom, and these things will be added to you.’”
– Luke 12:22-31
As a believer, you can hold firmly onto God’s promise that He’ll supply all your needs. It’s a promise straight from Jesus’ mouth in the sc
“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.” – John 3:16
That doesn’t mean it’s easy to have faith instead of worrying and being anxious about the daily challenges you face. Worry is a timeless struggle. It’s hard to rely on faith when it comes to your health, your employment, and your relationships. Nevertheless, it is God’s plan for you to live by faith – trusting Him for your daily bread just as you trust Him for His gifts of forgiveness and salvation.
Trust God today, and let His peace overrule your worry. Ask Him for the things and the help you need, seek first His Kingdom, and He will respond.
