Most Of It Never Happens
Have you ever noticed that most of the stuff we worry about rarely ever happens? Seriouslyâ€¦at least thatâ€™s how it is in my life. Worry can consume me at timesâ€¦but when I really sit back and think about it, most of the things I worry about never happen anywayâ€¦
Hereâ€™s what Jesus said about it in the Bibleâ€¦the New Testament book of Matthew chapter 6 verses 25-34: "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? And why do you worry about clothes? See how the lilies of the field grow. They do not labor or spin. Yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these. If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today and tomorrow is thrown into the fire, will he not much more clothe you, O you of little faith?So do not worry, saying, ''What shall we eat?'' or ''What shall we drink?'' or ''What shall we wear? For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them. But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.
I love that last part: Why worry about tomorrow? Today has enough trouble of its own! Thatâ€™s great! Hey, if God cares about the birds and the lilies of the field, He cares a lot more about YOU! So the most important thing I can do is to dedicate myself to pursuing God and what He wants for my life. If I do that, I really donâ€™t have much to worry about anyway because I will learn to trust that Heâ€™ll take care of me and give me exactly what I need when I need it!
